Who's Next is amazing, too bad I find getting into double concept albums to be a chore...

My favorite band and artist of all time, bombastic live, genius at the studio, and the craziest rhythm section ever.

Regarding the comment "old mans music [sic]" by InsanityPrawnBoy:
actually, this is very much young man's music - simply young men from a different time. music (at least that being sold to the public) has been a "young man's game" for a long time. Ragtime wasn't old people music, Swing wasn't old people music, Be-bop wasn't old people music, Motown wasn't old people music, etc. The music of The Who is filled with the vibrance of youth, the energy of youth and their lyrics speak to the listener from a youthful perspective (though at times also an "old soul" view of the world). Today's "young people music" will seem "old" to younger people 20, 30, 40, 50 years from now. But a young person with perspective will understand that this music comes from the mind and body of young people and that certain truths of the life experiences of young people will resonate in that music forever. But I guess you were just looking to be snarky.

They rocked harder than anyone else of their time, but their experimental stuff is just as influential and innovative as their early straight forward hard rock.

Quadrophenia was on and my husband said, "I don't 'get' the Who." In that declaration I knew unequivocally there was just no hope, and so - well - I left.

As a bassist, I really wish I liked this band more (John Entwistle is easily one of the top 10 bassists of all times), but I'm just not crazy about their lyrics/singer/songwriting. Awesome band, less awesome front man, in my opinion.

Invented punk.

Great guitarrist. Great drummer. Great bassist. Great singer.

Far better than the Stones.

They should definitely be in the TOP 10.
