The Who “Won’t Get Fooled Again”

One of my favorite rock anthems:

Many of you recognize this as the CSI:Miami theme song. Remember at the beginning of each episode, when Horatio puts on sunglasses while delivering a corny one-liner in an overdramatic fashion, and then yeaaaaahhhhh…

“Won’t Get Fooled Again” was originally an anti-Vietnam War song, written by The Who guitarist Pete Townshend.

The Who also performed at the Woodstock.

Even in the drug-soaked 70s, very few rock bands came close to the showmanship of Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend. Many people consider The Who as one of the greatest live bands, if not the greatest.

Trivia: this song is the origin of the phrase “Meet the new boss, same as the old boss”.
