  • Creator Backlash: Pete dislikes both the title, which he didn't choose, and the cover, described by him as "a bad joke that reeks of urine".
  • Creator's Favorite: Pete stated that "Bargain" was his favorite song on the album.
  • Revival by Commercialization: CSI: Miami's use of "Won't Get Fooled Again" and CSI: NY's use of "Baba O'Riley". "Bargain" was also used in a Nisan commercial.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Pete Townshend originally planned to follow Tommy with a second Rock Opera-cum-interactive concert experience titled Lifehouse. The project fell apart when Pete couldn't properly explain the concept to anyone else and 8 of the songs were used on Who's Next.
    • One rejected proposed cover had Keith Moon in drag as a dominatrix with a whip. This appeared on the tray liner for the CD remaster.
