My Generation is timeless - it reflects the feelings of youth across the decades

Andy, Leicester

Kev, Lancaster
I first heard this song in 1985 when I was 14.Within a month i'd bought every record The Who had ever made.

Linda Howard,Phila,Pa U.S.A
" My Generation is still a Anthem for all generations ,from the 60's and every decade that follows it will still be around and just as powerful thru many ,many more centuries!!!!!!!!! "THE WHO ARE TRUE GODS." TOWNSHEND A GENIUS IN ALL HE DOES!!!!!!!!!!

B, Roanoke, VA USA
Even 40 years from now, when My Generation plays every teen knows exactly what Towshend's talking about. That is remarkable.

vana - teenage wasteland
My generation ... it still speaks to us youngins' of the day... and kicks ass too!

John, Sutton Coldfield
There will probably never be a greater anthem to teenage angst than this 3 minutes 18seconds. An instant and enduring classic. Often imitated but never equalled.

Lewis, London
At 25 years old i wasnt even born when the song was released- yet still to rock fans of my generation it feels as though it was written for us and is still having a massive impact and affect!

Jon Dawson/LaGrange
My Generation is the greatest punk song ever. The Third Of Never version is far superior to the Oasis version.

Meg Philadelphia PA
From the first time I heard this song when I was a young teenager to now pushing 40 I still very honestly hope I die before I get old!
