"It's only teenage wasteland"
Baba O’Riley – 1971

Baba O’Riley is a song by The Who from their 1971 album, Who’s Next. The single is often found in lists by critics naming the top rock songs of all time.

The song was originally to be in Pete Townshend’s ambitious rock opera Lifehouse but that idea fell through leaving this as a standalone tribute. The track had originally been over 30 minutes long but was edited down to just over 5 minutes. Though the track was never released as a single in the US or UK it was released elsewhere getting to number 11 in the Dutch charts.

Often referred to as being The Who’s best song it goes without saying that we would include it in our range of T Shirts paying tribute to The Who and their great music.

The song was, in part, a tribute to Meher Baba, Townshend’s spiritual guru. It had actually been Townshend’s plan to feed Meher Baba’s information and vital statistics into a computer to create music, it is little surprise that this plan didn’t come to fruition.
