13 October 2022

This day in 1965 iconic mod rockers THE WHO recorded,
probably, their best known anthem. Named the 11th greatest
song in history by Rolling Stone Magazine. It went to #2 in
the UK and “78 in the US.

Legend goes that Pete Townshend wrote the song on a train,
inspired by the Queen Mother who had his 1935 Packard hearse
towed off a street in Belgravia (London) because she was offended
by the sight of it during her daily drive through the neighbourhood.

Hilarious story. I wonder who invented it. Anyway, later in 1985
Townshend said My Generation was very much about trying to find
a place in society.

People try to put us ddd-down
