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.

Get a The Who mug for your grandma Zora.
The best band ever. Fronted by awesome singer Roger Daltrey, master songwriter/guitarist Pete Townshend, Keith Moon, the best drummer in the world(John Bonham is overrated), and the best bassist, John Entwistle.
Listen to Quadrophenia, and try to prove me wrong.

A fantastic British rock band comprised of Roger Daultrey (Vocals), Peter Townshend (Guitarist), Keith Moon (Drums), and John Entwistle (Keyboard). Began in the early 1960's, and are still doing performances now, only with a different line-up (Moon and Entwistle both died in drug-related incidences).
Great tracks include 'Baba O'Riley', 'Won't Get Fooled Again', 'My Generation', 'I Can See For Miles' 'I Can't Explain' and many more.

Get a the who mug for your dad Callisto.
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
