"Baba O'Riley" is a song written by Pete Townshend for the English rock band The Who. Roger Daltrey sings most of the song, with Pete Townshend singing the middle eight: "Don't cry/don't raise your eye/it's only teenage wasteland". The title of the song is derived from this combination of the song's philosophical and musical influences: Meher Baba and Terry Riley.
Noted for its innovative fusion of The Who's hard rock sound and early electronic music experimentation by Townshend, and for its crashing chorus coupled with repeating F-C-B♭ power chords, the song has been a perennial favorite on classic rock radio stations as well as a concert staple for the band.
