REVIEWERRATING & REVIEW

An impressive and highly influential, ahead of it's time number. The general attitude of the song foreshadowed punk rock by a decade or so, this track is even earlier than proto-punk acts like The Stooges or MC5, and it was a big influence on American garage rock acts of the period too. The feedback and Moon's chaotic drumming at the end was also influential on some of the psychedelic rock a few years later, and Entwistle's bass work is simply staggering. It only reached #74 in the States, but was a huge hit in England. Daltrey's slurred, faintly funny, vocals mirrored the amphetamine use of some of the mods in England at the time. One of the most important English rock tracks of the era.

I've always felt this song was overrated, probably because the Who never really stood for anything. When Pete Townsend was on his farewell tour, he was asked what he'd miss the most. He answered that he would miss the large paychecks. Yeah, he was probably trying to be funny and clever, but I suspect it's the truth. Kurt Corbaine (yes, I know he had his own problems) said it best: "I hope I die before I become Pete Townsend."

Pete Townsends first masterpiece of rebellion. It's the British Invasion's gritty equivalent to the Times They Are a Changin'.

A cover, but a great one, far better than the original. The version on Live at Leeds is probably the best.
