Teenage "Waste Land"?

For y'all who may not have heard yet, The Who will be at Jazz Fest this year. My favorite song by The Who, "Baba O'Riley," happens to relate to the Eliot we've read. The song was originally titled "Teenage Wasteland." Sound familiar? The line "We're all wasted!" directly addressed the teens and young adults of Woodstock but could also be taken as commentary on the society of the times as a whole. Thoughts?

Hope y'all enjoy!

OMG i recognized the tune before I really thought about it and One Direction sampled it for their single Best Song Ever. Which I find hilarious because every 1D fan knows that the thirst is real for those boys. We live in a "waste land" because we have not yet achieved the level of girlfriend to a member of the band.
