An individual, limited edition, example of vinyl record art made from a genuine, original, 45rpm, 7” single featuring the hit single by the English Rock band, The Who, from 1966, My Generation. Released on the Brunswick record label, in the UK, this collectable record has been reworked into the shape of a vintage Gibson guitar which was played, favoured and smashed on stage by Pete Townsend.

My Generation was written by Pete Townshend of The Who and it became a worldwide hit and is one of their most recognisable songs. The song has been said to have “encapsulated the angst of being a teenager,” and has been characterised as a “nod to the mod counterculture”.  Perhaps the most striking element of the song is the lyrics, considered one of the most distilled statements of youthful rebellion in rock history. The tone of the track alone helped make it an acknowledged forebear of the punk rock movement. One of the most quoted—and patently rewritten—lines in rock history is “I hope I die before I get old,” famously sneered by lead singer Roger Daltrey.
