Just figured out that the beginning of one direction's Best Song Ever sounds almost exactly like the beginning of this song. I guess we all now know where they get their material from, what a rip off

I still remember when Keith Moon died, there was an Australian guy who was a dead ringer for Roger Daltrey in my high school who nearly had a nervous breakdown over it. I didn't care much, because I liked punk rawk back then.

Pearl Jam sometimes used to close with Baba or possible encore song. One of Roger's best rock vocal performances and stands the test of time.

Teenage waste land? Sorry this age group has grown up, done their thing(s), and become older after teenage wastelands. The song has brought back more visual memories than I want to remember. :)
