The 50 Worst Rock Fails Of All Time

The Who Show Their Age at the Super Bowl

When: February 7th, 2010

First the Flo TV commercial comes on and we learn that The Who have allowed the loathsome will.i.am to remix their classic, "My Generation," and that, yes, he actually changed the lyrics (from "I hope I die before I get old" to "I don't want to die, I want to get old"). Then the band—well, the band's remaining two members, Pete Townsend and Roger Daltrey—come out for the halftime show and Roger looks way too much like the night's other star, Betty White, and Pete's shirt is unbuttoned where it shouldn't be, and they screw up a bunch of their awesome songs by cramming truncated versions into a very ill-conceived medley. And the sad thought arises that perhaps they should have hoped harder. (Not really, of course. But, y'know.)
