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.
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.
