Released: December 1964
The Who's debut single – if we gloss over The High Numbers' 'Zoot Suit' – is built on a clean, metallic riff that has cropped up time and again in rock (and dance) music. Influenced by The Kinks' 'All Day And All Of The Night', Pete Townshend's choppy guitar has inspired The Clash and The Hives, while the song has been covered by David Bowie.
