* MissingEpisode:
** Several of the songs the group recorded for ''Lifehouse'', such as "Mary", were lost due to the master tapes being inadequately preserved, and decayed to uselessness by the time the group sought to remaster them in the '90s. Some, like "Put the Money Down" and "Time is Passing", were partially restored with new vocals and overdubs added to what could be retrieved from the originals.
** The group's cover of "Under My Thumb", as reissued in the CD era, is missing the lead guitar part, which was lost due to a damaged master tape.

** This is how instrument smashing became part of the band's live sets. Pete Townshend accidentally broke his guitar neck on a club's low ceiling and decided to smash his guitar both out of frustration and [[IMeantToDoThat to make it look like he'd done it on purpose]]. The band's manager Keith Lambert loved it and asked Townshend to keep doing it as [[NoSuchThingAsBadPublicity the stunt got the band a lot of attention]].

* PromotedFanboy: Scot Halpin, a nineteen-year old fan who played with the band during one concert. Keith Moon had passed out mid-show and was unable to play the drums, so Halpin stepped in for him.

** ''The Who By Numbers'' took an unusually long time to complete. This was not because of technical difficulties, but because the band members's lack of interest and because of Pete's [[HeroicBSOD writer's block and feeling of disenchantment from his music]]

**The band also don't look back fondly on their debut ''Music/MyGeneration''. They dismissed it as a rush job (it was recorded in only a week) that didn't accurately represent their stage performances of that point in their career

** Also, when the Who made a guest appearance on WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons, Pete Townshend had lost his voice and was unable to read his parts. His brother Paul recorded them instead.

** A band whose image was largely built around [[RockersSmashGuitars their at-the-time-shocking and revolutionary act of wrecking their equipment onstage]] and for wrecking hotel rooms and causing havoc on tour[[note]]The Holiday Inn chain banned them for life from their hotels in the 1960's[[/note]] had the misfortune of being in constant debt for much of that decade, until {{Tommy}} became a success in 1969. This, and whatever "legal matters" the band went through over this behavior became a constant source of pressure for the band, and the group was very close to breaking up many times. It can easily be said, then, that any attempts by the band of, erm, "sell(ing) out", affixing a quirky pop song like "Pinball Wizard" onto ''Tommy'' to help sales, or playing Woodstock [[MoneyDearBoy for the money]] would be [[JustifiedTrope very well justified and understandable]]. The inside fold out of ''Live At Leeds'' shows bills sent to the band for their antics and instrument destruction.
