The Who

June 1971: The Who Release "Won't Get Fooled Again"

The Who's Pete Townshend was in a revolutionary mood when he wrote "Won't Get Fooled Again." Originally conceived as part of the aborted Lifehouse project, the song went on to be the final track on band's landmark fifth studio album, Who's Next. The bombastic eight-minute track featuring a signature scream from vocalist Roger Daltrey brought the band's immense power into stark relief.
