Among the many songs featured are "Magic Bus," "Won't Get Fooled Again," "My Generation," "Young Man's Blues," "Happy Jack," and excerpts from the innovative rock-opera Tommy. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"... a scrappy, vibrant musical portrait painted in the bold colors of rock itself: impassioned lyrics, power chords, crashing drums and smashing guitars."
‑ Sean Axmaker, Seanax.com
"Good Who documentary"
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"I can't explain, so you'll just have to tune into "My Generation" to get the Who's status as one of the all-time great bands."
‑ Thomas Delapa, Boulder Weekly
"This is not a film about rock'n roll, it is rock'n roll."
