“Won’t Get Fooled Again” is a song by the English rock band The Who, written by Pete Townshend.
The original version of the song appears as the final track on the band’s 1971 album Who’s Next.
The 1971 single release (a drastically edited version at three-and-a-half minutes in length) reached number 9 on the UK Singles Chart, number 15 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 14 on the Australian Singles Chart (Go-Set).
It is a perennial favorite on classic rock radio stations and concert staple for the band.
The song originally appeared on the 1971 album Who’s Next and has since appeared on various other recordings, including the live compilation soundtrack for The Kids Are Alright and its 1979 documentary film.
The film performance of the song, which occurred on 25 May 1978 in Shepperton Studios, was also the last song the original lineup ever performed together, as Keith Moon died four months later.
The song was performed both at Live Aid and 20 years later at Live 8.
Townshend also collaborated on a celebrated, live, acoustic duet version of the song with leading classical guitarist John Williams for the 1979 Amnesty International benefit The Secret Policeman’s Ball (1979).
The Who’s Next deluxe edition (released in 2003) contains an early session tape of this song with a different structure featuring Mountain’s Leslie West on lead guitar.
Numerous live versions of this song have appeared on albums.
In addition to The Kids Are Alright soundtrack, the most notable ones are on the Who’s Next deluxe edition from the 1971 Young Vic show and on the Live at the Royal Albert Hall album (from a 2000 show with Noel Gallagher guesting).
The band’s performance of the song at 2001’s The Concert for New York City was considered a highlight of that show.
Roger Daltrey, John Entwistle and Townshend have each performed the song at solo concerts.
Townshend has most radically rearranged the song several times, using instrumentation varying from acoustic to techno.
The Who (featuring surviving original members Daltrey and Townshend) closed their set during the halftime show of Super Bowl XLIV with this song on 7 February 2010.
In 2004 it was ranked number 133 on Rolling Stone’s The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time list.
During the 2000 Republican convention, a record briefly played “Don’t Stop”, presumably as a taunt against its use by the 1992 Clinton campaign. The record then screeched to a halt, to be replaced by “Won’t Get Fooled Again” – or at least the refrain chorus.
In October 2001, The Who reunited to perform at The Concert for New York City to help raise funds for the families of firemen and police officers killed during the September 11th World Trade Center attacks. They finished their set with ‘We Won’t Get Fooled Again’ to a highly-responsive and emotional audience, with close-up aerial video footage of the World Trade Center buildings playing behind them on a huge digital screen.
The song “I’ll Be OK” by McFly, who at the time were influenced by The Who, has an intro akin to the intro of “Won’t Get Fooled Again”.
The song was covered by Van Halen on their live album Live: Right Here, Right Now in 1993 and made it to number one on the Billboard Album Rock Tracks chart.
In that and other live versions, as well as “live-in-the-studio” versions, during the quiet middle instrumental section, singer Sammy Hagar always shouts “THEY’RE ALL WASTED!” — which is from a completely different Who song, “Baba O’Reilly.”
It was also covered by heavy metal guitarist Axel Rudi Pell and his band for their 2007 album Diamonds Unlocked.
