Teenage Wasteland

They're all wasted: One Direction fans bravely vanquish some old band called The Who:

In a replay of Quadrophenia’s violent war of the mods versus rockers—only with considerably more GIFs, far less rocking, and zero familiarity with The Who—Twitter erupted last night in a war between One Direction fans and hypothetical band The Who, over a perceived threat to the One Direction song “Best Song Ever.” The crisis that destroyed a thousand curfews began after some critics noted certain similarities between that current single and The Who’s “Baba O’Riley,” well beyond their both being levied at teenage wastelands.

It’s a similarity that even the song’s producer has openly acknowledged in the past, so hearing it mentioned again in a Clickmusic review naturally gave way to One Direction fans believing The Who were seconds away from erasing “Best Song Ever” from the Internet, possibly with fire.

The result: A vicious war of words between defenders of one of the biggest, most accomplished, most groundbreaking bands in the history of music, and some old dudes called “The Who,” whoever that is.
