If that's the case, then REO Suckwagon and Jour-nay
and Kans-ass and Ferrener and Skin-nerd and
Styx-in-my-throat are ALL more important than The Who
right now!  And 100 years from now, when they talk
about The Who it'll be about Tommy and Quad, not WN.

I would. Some of Ray's most painfully bad material:

"Motorway food is the worst in the world/You've never
eaten food like you've eaten on the motorway/Motorway
food is the worst in the world/The coffee tastes weak
and the cakes taste stale/And gasoline fumes are the
worst to inhale/Your stomach rolls over and your face
turns pale..."

Yeesh! Almost as bad as Did You Steal My Money!

Current or not, you ARE talking about those sort of
people if you evoke what's played on the radio!
Besides, how many Maroon 5 fans do you think even know
of The Who?

And I don't regret it. Not a bit.

On a Who list? Yeah...I bet you are.

I disagree. I think Ray is certainly capable of
writing some incredible new material. In fact, their
last album Phobia wasn't bad. It just wasn't popular.

Oh, OK. Good.
