Default I really dislike Young Man Blues

I'm listening to my Medium Rare record, and I'm sitting through this one now. Why did they cover this song, out of all of The Who's songs? It's just my opinion of course, but I definitely would have chosen another song.

I am very much with you on this - can't stand the original, can't stand the cover

Same thoughts. Always a skipper, on concerts, on Medium Rare, on iPod, on anywhere.

I quite liked it when they first did it for the VH1 Rock Honors in 2008, it's a really energetic song once you get into it but that was four years ago (a week ago today, actually). I'm very bored of it now.

I remember thinking I wished they'd let the singer from Supergrass(?) do this song, and then let Dave (or maybe Taylor) sing Bargain instead. I think Bargain is a far superior song, and that way Bargain could have been the recurring song on the foo's setlists.

Yeah because Gaz did 'Bargain' they only did that live afterwards a few times when Supergrass were on tour with them, after that it was gone. YMB was odd though, they seemed to be done with it on the ESP&G tour in 2008 like most covers then they did it at the 606 performance and it's been consistent on the setlist ever since.

Ive never had a problem with it. I have always really liked that cover. I first saw it on Austin city limits. I though it was great.

Always fun to see if Taylor catches his stick.

I think it was Taylors idea to cover it. I can understand the appeal for a drummer to play it. Its a modern version of the song. I like it, they did a good job to a difficult song.

I could do without it too. It has been overplayed IMO. With the Foos collection of songs, I wish they would change up the setlist more like Pearl Jam too. That way each show would be a total surprise.

Considering the size of their catalogue and the number of songs they completely ignore I don't understand why ANY cover would be a setlist regular.

I never minded Young Man Blues personally. But your argument could be made for just about any song a fan would disagree with (cover, extended jam, Learn to Fly, etc.).

I assume he means the Mose Allison version. It's very jazz/blues sounding.

The best version of this was at the NME awards show when Daltrey sang the lead and Dave just ran about waving his hair round.When I see it/hear it in a setlist now it just disappoints me.

I really do wish they'd leave the covers out but if they ARE going to do one then do something different. I want to see them play Aint Talkin About Love by Van Halen for example - I know they used to warm up and sound check with this and the only time I've heard it with vocals was the recording of the Grammy awards when they played it from behind the curtain and it sounded brilliant.

I don't mind them doing covers. And I usually love their choices as well, except for this one, really.
