"Sweet Sixteen" is a song performed by Billy Idol, recorded on the album Whiplash Smile in 1987. The song appeared in the Miami Vice episode "Honor Among Thieves?".


  • The song is set as an eerie backdrop for Delgado to look for his next teen-age victim, at night, in a carnival.
  • Idol would only have two more Top 40 singles, a live remake of Tommy James' "Mony, Mony" later in 1987 (#1), and "Cradle of Love" (#2 in 1990).
