The Who - My Generation ( Monterey International Pop Festival 16.,17.,18. Juni 1967)


People try to put us d-down (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
Just because we get around (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
Things they do look awful c-c-cold (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
I hope I die before I get old (Talkin' 'bout my generation)

This is my generation
This is my generation, baby

Why don't you all f-fade away (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
And don't try to dig what we all s-s-say (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
I'm not trying to cause a big s-s-sensation (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
I'm just talkin' 'bout my g-g-g-generation (Talkin' 'bout my generation)

This is my generation
This is my generation, baby

Why don't you all f-fade away (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
And don't try to d-dig what we all s-s-say (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
I'm not trying to cause a b-big s-s-sensation (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
I'm just talkin' 'bout my g-g-generation (Talkin' 'bout my generation)

This is my generation
This is my generation, baby

People try to put us d-down (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
Just because we g-g-get around (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
Things they do look awful c-c-cold (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
Yeah, I hope I die before I get old (Talkin' 'bout my generation)

This is my generation
This is my generation, baby

Monterey (Monterey County Fairground in Kalifornien USA) gilt als das erste große Rockfestival, dem eine ganze Serie von Veranstaltungen zwischen 1967 und 1969 folgten. Monterey war das erste Open Air Festival, das sich als regelmäßig inszenierte Live-Show um die Rockmusik verdient gemacht hat und den Weg für ähnliche Veranstaltungen wie z. B. Woodstock bereitete. Auf dem Festival traten außer den WHO auch Eric Burdon, Canned Heat, Jefferson Airplane, The Mamas & Papas, Janis Joplin u.a. auf.
