The Who songs are some of the most recognizable rock songs ever, and for good reason. The Who is an English rock band that grew in prominence after being formed in 1968 by primary songwriter and guitarist Pete Townshend, lead vocalist Roger Daltry, bassist John Entwistle, and drummer Keith Moon. Over the years, their work has put them into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and have garnered them a number of Grammy Awards.

The Who’s eighth studio album, titled Who Are You was released August of 1978, which means, it’s a great time to celebrate the band! On the album was also the titular song “Who Are You.”
