The quirkiest, strangest band ever to be spawned from the 1960s. Composing of four completley different people with what seemed like absolutely nothing in common, The Who took the rock stage by storm when they introduced their strange performance to the world. The main way the Who brought something new to the stage was by far their endings. After the show was over, they would proceed to completely destroy every single object that happened to be within range. Today, the Who are half disbanded, due to the fact that John Entwhistle, their bass player, and Keith Moon, their "Patent British Exploding Drummer", are both dead. *sob*. Anywhoo, the band is most famous for their two "Rock Operas", "Tommy", and "Quadrophenia". Also, the theme song for "CSI" was written by The Who. the name, naturally, is Who Are You.
"Hey, did you hear this awesome song by The Who?"

A Fucking amazing rock band formed in the 1964. Made up of Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, John Entwistle, and Keith Moon. They are the best Rock band ever, so suck on that Led Zeppelin Fanboys!
While Led Zeppelin is good, The Who are much better, with songs like My Generation, Young Man Blues, Bargain, Won't Get Fooled Again, Love Reign Oer Me, Long Live Rock, the Seeker, Were Not Gonna Take It, Behind Blue Eyes, Summertime Blues, and Blue Red and Grey.

the Definitive Rock Band. Never stole from anyone, created punk rock (my generation if you don't believe me), started instrument destruction, and were the greatest band to walk this earth from 1964-1982 (strongest points obviously with Keith Moon, the most entertaining drummer of ALL time).
As said best by Time magazine in the 70s - they outlasted, outlived, and outclassed all of their contemporaries.
However, I'd love to add to that: The Who outlasted, outlived, and outclassed all of their contemporaries and bands after.
The Who will always be the Greatest Band of All Time in my eyes.
Not to mention had the best Bassist too

An individual who resembles a character from the movie "The Grinch". Female and short in stature, this individual will have you contemplating busting your ear drums just so you don't have to hear them speak.

Although it's easy to envy them for their ways, one must understand that this sort of backstabbing, lying, psychotic behavior has only been perfected after years on the mean streets of your local trailer park and let's face it - we can't all be that lucky.

"Who's" can infiltrate any town and any circle of friends. They may meet a person at work who they immediately recognize as being pretty, popular and successful. They then will stop at nothing to take over this individual's life. Some "who's" have even been known to try and steal small children.

While their small troll like size makes them appear a non threat, they often carry diseases such as mange, fleas, ticks, herpes, chlamydia, the inability to shut the fuck up, lying, mooching off their boyfriends parents and sloppy seconds. Although not as severe they are also prone to many learning disorders including; backstabbing, new best friend every week syndrome, It's not me it's every one else and I'm so damn dumb I don't know people hate me.

If you would like to study the who in her natural habitat you can locate her with other Who's at the weekly "Yes, I'm a cunt too" meetings held at the local Dollar General. These meetings are very informative and offer exciting seminars such as "Stalking 101", "How to play the victim no matter what", "Fake a friendship in ten days", "Myspace: the real world", and "How to buy adult clothes in the kids section".

"Look out, there's a group of Who's over there with their leader The Who."

"Wow, thanks. I would rather kill myself than talk to them."
