Townshend on We Won't Get Fooled Again
Mike Rappaport

Now, I really like the blogosphere!  Pete Townshend responds to the claim by National Review's John Miller that  "We Won't Get Fooled Again"  is the greatest conservative rock song.  (Hat tip: Jonathan Adler.)

Townshend's response reminds us that you never know what is in a songwriter's mind.  Although sometimes you get lucky.  I remember arguing with friends that "Get Back in Line" from the Kinks was a libertarian song and that Kinks were libertarians.  My friends laughed at this (and me).  But then it turned out that Ray Davies said he was largely a libertarian.
