"Out here in the fields
I fight for my meals
I get my back into my living
I don't need to fight
To prove I'm right
I don't need to be forgiven"

Who's Next is the fifth studio album by The Who, released in 1971. It was Pete Townshend's salvaging of his failed Lifehouse project. It is usually considered one of The Who's best albums, and is possibly best known for the songs "Baba O'Riley" and "Won't Get Fooled Again." A documentary about the creative process behind the making of this album can be seen in the Classic Albums TV documentary series.
