Here's an interesting article that lists some off-beat moments.  I've 
included The Who's entry below:

15. The Who's 'A Quick One'

(1966): "Tommy" is usually credited as the first rock opera, but the genre 
was born three years earlier with "A Quick One" -- a randy nine-minute "mini 
opera" Pete Townshend hastily wrote upon learning he needed four more songs 
to finish the Who's second LP.

Congrats to them for getting it right, eh?
