Won’t Get Schooled Again

During a recent guest spot on The Tonight Show, Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend joined Jimmy Fallon and The Roots in the green room for perform their 1971 classic Won’t Get Fooled Again on a bunch of kid-sized classroom instruments. Naturally, Pete ends up smashing his ukulele to bits.

The Who’s 1971 classic Baba O’Riley has one of the most memorable synthesizer riffs of all time. Here, the guys from Those Darn Accordions! turn in a fun cover version of the track with the synths replaced by accordions. They need to do a version of Squeeze Box now.

Puddles Pity Party managed to mash up two unlikely tunes into one, combining the Johnny Cash classic Folsom Prison Blues with The Who’s Pinball Wizard. We’re not sure why it works, but Puddles always does a good job hypnotizing us with his voice.

The Who’s Baba O’Reily isn’t an easy tune to play, especially given that the original’s rhythm was an organ effect. While we’re not exactly blown away by the vocals in Stewart Bozarth’s 2007 rendition, his piano playing is top notch. We love his drop-the-mic sort of finish.

We all know The Who’s classic Won’t Get Fooled Again rocks, but we had no idea how impressive John Entwistle’s bass line was until we heard his part isolated from the rest of the group.

Who knew The Who could sound so good played on ukuleles. Thanks to the Durham Ukelele Orchestra, we now know these tiny Hawaiian guitars can rock. Yeah, we know the guy on bass is cheating.
