Think of the Who’s sound as a bank with [i]real[/i] deep pockets; pretty much every liquid asset, from the strut to the st-st-stutter, has been borrowed — or outright [i]heisted[/i] — by your favorite artists. While the rock opera [i]American Idiot[/i] has been tagged as [i]Quadrophenia[/i]’s doppelgänger, Green Day’s Who roots tunnel even deeper; check out Billie Joe Armstrong’s Daltreyesque v-v-vocal, plus the flying bottle crash, on “My Generation.” Boston Irish punk-folk pack the Dropkick Murphys swagger and scowl through a back-alley beatdown of “The Kids Are Alright.” And pirouetting on that fine line separating genius from madness, former That Dog violinist Petra Haden cuts “Tattoo” — not to mention every other track on [i]The Who Sell Out[/i] — [i]a cappella[/i]. How’d Pete Townshend respond? Quite simply: “I adore it.'' From the [i]ooh-ah[/i] of Tina Turner’s temptress take on “Acid Queen” to the [i]oom-pah[/i] of Brave Combo’s polkafied “I Can See for Miles,” to the [i]whoa-ah[/i] of Pearl Jam’s sky-parting “Love, Reign O’er Me,” we’ve got the Who covered.
