Day 4: My Generation – The Who

It’s day 4 of my 10 favourite rock anthems, and it’s My Generation by The Who.

Never a Stones fan, in the mid 1960’s my preference was for The Who. A genuine hard rock band, with a fast living reputation. Of the original line up of Pete Towshend, Roger Daltrey, Keith Moon, and John Entwistle, only Daltrey and Townshend remain. 

This is a classic rock anthem, which never fails to evoke the urgency, anarchism, and abandon of youth. The compilation video at least has the benefit of a decent soundtrack.
