Punk-rock icon Billy Idol is officially a U.S. citizen, after completing a naturalization ceremony on Wednesday (November 14th) in Los Angeles. The 62-year-old British-born rocker has been living in L.A. for many years.

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services even had some fun with Idol’s citizenship, borrowing a line from his classic song “White Wedding” when it tweeted, “It’s a nice day for a naturalization ceremony. Congratulations Billy Idol on becoming a #newUScitizen today in Los Angeles, CA,” along with a few photos of Idol at the ceremony.
