Growing up The Who was one of my favorite bands. I like the Doobies, but it's not even remotely close.

I saw The Who at Shea Stadium with the Clash warming up ('82 or '83?). After finishing a good portion of a bottle of vodka I removed a saftey pin from my Army jacket and proceded to pierce my ear. Ah, the joys of youth.

Unless Warren Zevon is thrown into the pool, I promise to vote for the Who in every contest I see.

Dr. Jimmy and Mr. Jim! Bellboy! Pictures of Lily! Baba O'Reilly! C'mon people! Who could vote for the Doobie Bros over the Who?

another one thats not even close ...
I mean they have a rock opera for gods sakes ..

No one knows what it's like to be the bad man
To be the sad man behind blue eyes
No one knows what it's like to be hated,
To be fated to telling only lies.

But my dreams, they aren't as empty
As my conscience seems to be
I have hours, only lonely
My love is vengeance that's never free

No one knows what it's like to feel these feelings
Like I do and I blame you
No one bites back as hard on their anger
None of my pain and woe can show through

But my dreams, they aren't as empty
As my conscience seems to be
I have hours, only lonely
My love is vengeance that's never free
Mmmm...

When my fist clenches crack it open
Before I use it and lose my cool
When I smile tell me some bad news
Before I laugh and act like a fool

And if I swallow anything evil
Put your finger down my throat
And if I shiver please give me a blanket
Keep me warm let me wear your coat

No one knows what it's like to be the bad man
To be the sad man, behind blue eyes

Can anybody believe that these 8 semi sentences sold millions, and made them a household name ...
People try to put us d-down
Just because we get around
Things they do look awful c-c-cold
Hope I die before I get old

Why don't you all f-f-f-fade away?
Don't try to dig what we all s-s-say
I'm not trying to cause a big s-sensation
I'm just talking 'bout my g-g-generation

I say we add those offenses to the capital punishment law.....Limp Bizkit also wrote faith right? And Puff Daddy wrote Kashmir??


Hey, Puff Daddy's version of Kashmir made me notice the song. Of course Zeppelin's version is better, and I think I've only heard Puffy's version once, but once I heard that opening I knew the song was awesome. It's my favourite song intro probably. I think the first time I heard it was in American Graffiti though.

Limp Bizkit also did a cover of My Generation - kinda. And Life in the Fast Lane, too. And Perfect Drug (kinda) by NIN.

BTW - The Who got my vote. Not a fan of "Behind Blue Eyes", but Teenage Wasteland, Pinball Wizard, My Generation: ;-D
