The Who - My Generation

"Why don't you all f... fade away?"

The band's highest charting single from 1965, and a bona fide Mod anthem.

 Pete Townshend has offered many differing anecdotes to explain My Generation's genesis. 

One of the best (if not the most likely) is that it was written after the Queen Mother had his car, a hearse, towed away from his Belgravia home for being unsightly.
