Teenage Wasteland is a song written by Pete Townshend in 1971 for his LifeHouse project. Since the project wasn't completed back then, Townshend used parts of this song in his work with The Who, and parts of 'Teenage Wasteland' eventually became another song, Baba O'Reilly.
Excerpt from Teenage Wasteland:

"Out here in the fields, I fight for my meals
I get my back into my living
I don't need to fight to prove I'm right
And I don't need to be forgiven

My kids ain't gonna break my heart
My greed ain't gonna spoil their part
This life just has to be a new one
I'm gonna tan underneath a new sun

Don't cry, don't raise your eye
It's only teenage wasteland"

the name many people give the song "Baba O'Riley" by The Who it is a common misconception. The song has been covered by many bands such as pearl jam
Person #1: I love that song by Pearl Jam, Teenage Wasteland
Person #2: i think you mean the song Baba O'Riley by The Who, and Yes the sang is awesome
