(hennemusic) Billy Idol joined Jimmy Fallon and The Roots to perform a social distancing remix of his 1981 hit, "Dancing With Myself", on the May 21 episode of NBC-TV's Tonight Show.

The lineup performed the quarantine version with instruments found at home, alongside viewer-submitted videos of fans dancing by themselves at their own homes.

The broadcast encourages viewers to donate to World Central Kitchen, a not-for-profit non-governmental organization devoted to providing meals in the wake of natural disasters that was founded in 2010 by celebrity chef Jos� Andr�s; learn more about their work at wck.org.

Initially released in 1980 by Idol during his tenure with the pioneering UK punk band Generation X, the rocker issued a remixed version of "Dancing With Myself" a year later as he launched his solo career; it also served as the title to the singer's 2014 memoir of the same name.
