Roger Daltrey, lead singer for the iconic English rock band “The Who”, spoke out this week against the so-called “woke generation,” saying that they are only creating a “miserable world ” for themselves.

Daltrey said this while discussing all the “spin” that is in the world today during an interview on Zane Lowe’s Apple Music 1.

“It’s just getting harder to disseminate the truth,” Daltrey said. “It’s almost like, now we should turn the whole thing off. Go back to newsprint, go back to word of mouth and start to read books again. It’s becoming so absurd now with AI, all the tricks it can do, and the woke generation.”

“It’s terrifying, the miserable world they’re going to create for themselves,” the 77-year-old London native added. “I mean, anyone who’s lived a life and you see what they are doing, you just know that it’s a route to nowhere.”

Yahoo News reported that lead singer Daltrey founded “The Who” along with Pete Townshend and John Entwistle in 1964. The three music icons met at school in London.

The band has remained incredibly popular for decades, and is still known today as one of the best groups of all time. In fact, Wikipedia calls them, “one of the most influential rock bands of the 20th century”.

The English rockers have sold over 100 million records worldwide. “The Who” have released twelve albums, with their last one being “Who,” which came out in December. 

Here they are performing one of their biggest hits – “My Generation”. Check out those outfits!

‘The Who’ Lead Singer Talks His Iconic Move

These comments were made just days after Daltrey opened up on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” about how he came up with his iconic move of swinging his microphone around from its cord while he performs. 

 “I did it out of pure boredom actually,” he explained. “I was on a stage with two maniacs and a very straight bass player and I just got bored. I thought, ‘I’ve got this thing in my hand and I’m fed up with holding it up there so what do I do with it?’ So I kind of threw it and I held onto the cord and of course it came back. I thought, ‘Well that’s kind of interesting. Let’s see what more I can do with it.’”

The move became so iconic that Daltrey decided to embrace and hone his craft.

“I went on to be pretty good with that thing,” he added. “I could take a cigarette out of someone’s mouth from about 20 yards, which is quite good, you know. I was really quite a good shot with that thing, but I can’t it see now, of course. I throw it up in the air and I just pray that it comes down somewhere [near me.]”

The ‘Woke Generation’

After decades of being a famous rocker, Daltrey clearly knows how to have a good time. This is probably why he in particular is so frustrated with the current “woke generation.”

He comes from the wild 1970s, when rebelliousness and non-conformity were all the rage.

These days, however, it’s all about conformity and doing whatever the wokest of the woke tell you to do. 

In the end, Roger Daltrey is right that the woke left is creating a miserable world for themselves, and we’re all stuck living in it.
