For almost 50 years, the words "meet the new boss / same as the old boss" have rung true, but perhaps for once that's not quite true, with the leader of the free world who refuses to play by history's rules. And yet one constant remains: those who lead us only ever seem to listen to us when it suits their own agenda.

In an age when the frustrations of young people are readily expressed in the media, it's easy to forget that when Londoners The Who emerged with their debut album My Generation in 1965, they were seething with rage against an establishment that dismissed them and undervalued them. And Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, John Entwistle and Keith Moon turned that violence and anti-social behaviour into visceral live performances with provocative lyrics and pyrotechnical skills.
