Pete Townshend is a kiddie fiddler.

Not to mention that latest travesty of an album he and Daltrey have put out sounds like a sack of slowly drowning kittens.  It' the come-back from Hades.

Him mentioning the Who/ Pete in Death Proof may set this topic in a new direction...

Or was it just the opinion of the characters in his movie?

I thought the same. But I guess QT played with that reference since everybody talks about him and The Who. Some sort of private joke.

I think QT has a point when he says The Who are a band everyones supposed to like. He actually said that a few years ago, so that Dave Dee/Pete Townshend ref is def his own feelings. I feel that way about Led Zeppelin. I really dont like their music. Although theres a few songs I can stand. I fuckin hate Plants screechy bitch voice too.

He has a point...kinda...BUT this only esthablishes the Who as one of the big bands ever, as it is.

If a band or movie or director is in the category "supposed to like" its fucking good. Now, your personal disliking of it may be a fact. But you cant get around the fact that you put it in this category. You may hate the beatles, the rolling stones, the who or certain directors...but putting them in a category "supposed to like" says actually that they are great, but you dont like them personally.

Zeppelin rules. As fair as it goes Zeppelin beats all the old bands from the 60's/70's (this includes The rolling stones,pink floyd,the who, and the beatles...)

I gotta go with The Stones over Led Zeppelin. You cant really say "This band beats this band" thats just a matter of taste. For someone else, The Doors might be better than Led Zep.

Hey Floyd isnt overrated but I do see these little pricks wearing dark side of the moon shirts and they probably dont even listen to the band.

Many people think they are the greatest because they're ok? You aren't making any sense.

Listen to Echoes and tell me that isn't mind blowing, I dare ya.

Are we having a cock-swinging contest now? Let's make it simple: all these bands suck. And Thee Michelle Gun Elephant owns them all.

yeah...same with the Led Zeppelin shirts.  In American high-schools, discovering Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd is a right of passage.  For me, Zeppelin was much more of an influence in H.S.  It wasn't until college that I really got into Floyd....is it any coincidence that I also started hitting the peace-pipe at the same time?  I just couldn't get enough of The Dark Side of The Moon.  I've kind of gotten burned out on Floyd and Zeppelin, but it all goes in cycles.  Currently, I am listening to a lot of the following:
Steeley Dan, Jeff Beck, The Kinks, and Willie Nelson.  How's that for variety!
