I totally love this song.
I am lucky enough to have bought tickets to see The Who this September!
From the movie the girl next door I loved the girl elisa
I like this, but the intro sounds like a really annoying ring tone.
I think crunch should try to avoid this song...if he comes back here again, he'll be just as screwie as you & me...
Hey crunch..Who' s on second.
Nice
I was given the who's "who are you" record on a picture disk in 1978, 36 years later I still have it,unopened of course.
It only teen age wasteland what ever the title is
not who - The Who
Who this is.
Who is this?
Drunk Irish for f**k sake
All this time and I'm just now learning the name of this song.
Genuinely thought it was 'Teenage Wasteland'.

This song is just I don't know how to describe it it's just overly awesome!
One Direction sucks even worse then.

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.
The who is planning a 50th anniversary tour.

Don't Cry Don't Raise Your Eye....
Words can't describe how good Baba O 'Riley is!!
The Who is without a doubt one of the top ten rock bands ever!
Great song & my fav who album! Saw them in high school.
The violins were arranged by Mr. Moon if memory serves.
The Who's Next album is one
Of my favorite album's.

One of the best intros ever
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.
I wish Lifehouse had been finished.

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. :)
