VH1 Honors The Who

The Who is one of most legendary bands to come out of the UK in the 60's. Part of the British invasion with the Rolling Stones and The Beatles, these guys showed the raw onstage emotion that we equate rock with today. With hits like "I Predict a Riot" and "My Generation", their lyrics are amazing and at times prolific. And let's face it, they know how to rock out. "Baba O'Riley" (aka "Teenage Wasteland") has been covered by Pearl Jam, Nirvana and even this year's American Idol, David Cook.

For all their music and just being who they are, The Who was honored by VH1 Rock Honors with a concert featuring special guests Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters, Incubus, Flaming Lips and Tenacious D. The show will premiere on VH1 tomorrow (Thursday, July 17) at 9 p.m.

Here's a clip of the Foo Fighters' perfoming "Bargain".
