The Who make their case for the all time greatest rock band because of the landmark Who's Next, the two amazing rock operas, a number of other very solid albums, including the legendary Live At Leeds, one of the most memorable live shows ever (including one of my favorite Super Bowl shows), and one of the most exciting ensembles in modern music.

Their overall body of work puts them just behind bands like the Beatles and Zeppelin, but they are in the conversation. Great band.

They were outstanding each by each, and the were fantastic as a band. It's hard to say such an influential song like my generation.

Three masterpieces, (Who's Next, Quadrophenia, Tommy) two great albums (My Generation, The Who Sell Out), and a landmark live album. I'd say the Who are pretty damned legit.

The best live album ever, one of the best rock albums ever and two rock operas. What's not to like.

Live at Leeds is the best live album I've ever heard. It's what really pushes The Who well into my top 5 favorite bands.
