BTW, here's an interesting tidbit for fans of "Substitute": When the song was first released The Who released a different version for the U.S. single, replacing the line "I look all white but my dad was black" to "I try going forward but I keep walking back". I guess they thought the original line might be "inappropriate" for American teenage radio listeners.:rolleyes:

Isn't the phrase "teenage wasteland" from Baba O'Reily? Or have I messed up my Who songs in my head?

No, you're correct. I always thought it was named that..."Teenage Wasteland"

I'm listening to a live version (@ Shepperton Film Studio) now.
