the kids are alright

Going for another classic tune today. To be honest I am not sure whether I heard the original by The Who or the cover by The Queers first.

For some unknown reason I always think of this picture of Mr. IMo? back in the day when I hear this song. Maybe there is a memory behind it, but I think it reminds me of all the wild, weird stuff I did when I was ruled less by responsibility and my livelihood didn't depend on my behaviour. I miss that.

I had a hard time choosing the highlighted cover, I was going to go with The Queers originally, but Matthew Sweet's voice better suits my memories.
