The plot follows Jimmy's quest for identity as he struggles with life. The opera opens as he sits marooned on a rock in the middle of the English Channel, contemplating [[HowWeGotHere what led him there]]. A large part of the plot is Jimmy looking at the past few days of his life, in particular the Rocker-Mod conflicts that he was a part of, and attempting to reconcile his four different identities- the [[SplitPersonality quadrophenia]] of the title.

* BeYourself: This is what Jimmy's epiphany at the end amounts to. One of the more mature uses of the trope (interesting, considering it's about the trials of youth, and the trope is mostly "for kids").
* BrokenPedestal: Jimmy finds a mod he used to look up to ("Ace Face") working as a bell boy in a hotel that he'd previously smashed the windows at.

* {{Instrumentals}}: The TitleTrack and its reprise, "The Rock". If you ignore the foreshadowing lyrics, "I Am The Sea" can count as one, at least until the end (though that can actually be considered as part of "The Real Me": [[SiameseTwinSongs it's very hard to draw the line]]).

* LighterAndSofter: Okay, so the identity crisis, emotional turmoil, and social trials aren't exactly "light" per se, but compared to ''{{Tommy}}'' this album has no torture or rape and an overall happy ending.

The album was adapted into a [[Film/{{Quadrophenia}} 1979 cult film]] starring Phil Daniels, Leslie Ash, and Sting, featuring the music from the album (touched up with horns and synthesizers), along with a number of Creator/{{Motown}} tunes.

Added DiffLines:

* LeadBassist: John Entwistle's performance on "The Real Me" has been described as "a bass solo with words". In addition, from 1996 until his death in 2002, he would take a lengthy bass solo (accompanied only by drummer Zak Starkey) during live performances of "5:15".
