The Who - My Generation

People try to put us d-down (Talkin bout my generation)
Just because we get around (Talkin bout my generation)
Things they do look awful c-c-cold (Talkin bout my generation)
I hope I die before I get old (Talkin bout my generation)

This is my generation
This is my generation, baby

Why don t you all f-fade away (Talkin bout my generation)
And don t try to dig what we all s-s-say (Talkin bout my generation)
I m not trying to cause a big s-s-sensation (Talkin bout my generation)
I m just talkin bout my g-g-g-generation (Talkin bout my generation)

This is my generation
This is my generation, baby

Why don t you all f-fade away (Talkin bout my generation)
And don t try to d-dig what we all s-s-say (Talkin bout my generation)
I m not trying to cause a b-big s-s-sensation (Talkin bout my generation)
I m just talkin bout my g-g-generation (Talkin bout my generation)

This is my generation
This is my generation, baby

People try to put us d-down (Talkin bout my generation)
Just because we g-g-get around (Talkin bout my generation)
Things they do look awful c-c-cold (Talkin bout my generation)
Yeah, I hope I die before I get old (Talkin bout my generation)

This is my generation
This is my generation, baby

"My Generation" is a song by the British rock group The Who, which became a hit and one of their most recognizable songs. It has entered the rock and roll pantheon as one of the most celebrated, cited, and referenced songs in the idiom; it was named the 11th greatest song by Rolling Stone on their list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time and 13th on VH1's list of the 100 Greatest Songs of Rock & Roll,. It's also part of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll and is inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame for "historical, artistic and significant" value. In 2009 it was named the 37th Greatest Hard Rock Song by VH1. The song, composed by Pete Townshend at the age of twenty in 1965, was written for rebellious British youths called Mods, and expressed their feeling that older people "just don't get it".
