"My Generation (The Who cover)" as written by Damian Robert Nesta Marley, Nasir Jones, David Marley and Dwayne Carter....
Well, people try to put us down.
Talkin' bout my generation.
Just because we get around.
Talkin' bout my generation.
The things they do look awful cold.
Talkin' bout my generation.
I hope I die before I get old.
Talkin' bout my generation.
My generation.
Why don't you all just fade away?
Talkin' bout my generation.
And don't try to dig what we all say.
Talkin' bout my generation.
I'm not trying to cause a big sensation.
Talkin' bout my generation.
I'm just talkin' bout my generation.
Talkin' bout my generation.
My generation.
Break it, fuck that shit!
Why don't you all just fade away?
Talkin' bout my generation.
And don't try to dig what we all say.
Talkin' bout my generation.
I'm not trying to cause a big sensation.
Talkin' bout my generation.
I'm just talkin' bout my generation.
Talkin' bout my generation.
My generation.
Talkin' bout my generation.
This is my generation.
This is my generation, baby.

    General CommentThe song is cool, love the drumming beats. Never heard any other version of this song, but I'm sure they are good as the GreenDay version.

    General CommentTrifling Biyatch...fuck off, you're obviously being an asshole intentionally.

    The Who was the first rock band I ever heard...they got me into a ton of other great rock groups, Green Day has always been a favorite...good for them!! Rock on.
