Baba O'Riley played completely by Windows Sounds.

Cover versions just don't get any better than this.

>From Windows Secrets:

"The next time someone tells you Windows is no fun, point them to this video of the OS's version of a classic by one of the greatest rock bands of all times. 

The Who's "Baba O'Riley" (also known as "Teenage Wasteland") never sounded so... mechanical. This compilation is - you guessed it - made entirely with Windows sounds and effects. Let's hope Pete Townshend isn't a Mac user! Play the video"

>From the Fark website:
