Released: October 1965
Taking in a timeless sense of youthful disaffection via a countercultural, Mod lens, Pete Townshend's age-defying ditty distilled what it feels like to be young, energised and in the prime of life into 3:18 minutes of bristling hedonism. According to legend, Who manager Kit Lambert suggested that Roger Daltrey stuttered in order to sound “like a kid on speed.” Either way, it's still a clarion call for a youth in revolt.
