I agree. I never really cared for "My Generation" either. If he had parodied "Won't Get Fooled Again", "Baba O' Riley", or "Pinball Wizard" it might have been better. Maybe even "Who Are You?" would have been cool.

"Pinball Wizard" would've been rad.

"Boris The Spider" is my personal favourite though.

There's so much reference in this comic. Mr. munroe was able to get the Who, blogging, ted stevens, and an awesome Stranger reference to all play nice in one comic.
And now, the forums are ablaze with Animaniacs, Abott and Costello, Frets on fire, guitar hero and best Who song debates. all from a 4 panels of a stick figure with a keyboard.

He has surely done something quite unique.

You think we look pretty good together,
You check my page what-ever the weather.

But I'm a substitute for another site,
I look pretty good but my content's shite.
The witty things you see are all plagurised,
I look pretty clean, but I'm just X-rated, yeah.

Substitute your lies for fact,
I can see right through your Apple Mac.
My traffic was all right, but the fad is back,
My fine tuned server's really taking a waaaaaa-ck.

Substitute me for him,
Substitute my loss for win,
Substitute you for your mum,
At least I'll get to have some fun.

Also, I've always FRICKIN' hated the term "newbie" or "noob" it's just really gross sounding and it's got a really stupid, exclusive, concept behind it. I remember I had been online since 1992 and it was the year 2000 and something I didn't know some silly acronym that was mentioned in a chat room and everyone in the room was like "god..newbie" I hated it before that even. I just don't get the point, like it's designed to stop people from trying something they've never done before.

Baba O-Riley and Pinball Wizard are my 2 favorite songs by them. I don't see what you've got against My Generation though.

This is awesome. Pure awesome. This is the most awesomeness I have ever seen in four panels. It's nerdy, and yet... it's rocking out. Great combination only possible from XKCD.

As someone who firmly believes that song parody (and its close relative, "randomly quoting song lyrics in conversations") is the height of comedy, I give this two big ol' thumbs up.

Wait... did the artist see all my fake songs on the Hizzy? I feel ripped off! I mean, my first Hizzytrack was a Who song. NOTE: These only make sense if you watch House.

Won't Get Fooled Again
By Zalgon 26 McGee (Some help by Pete Townshend)

We'll be fighting with our peeps
With our patients piled in heaps
And the morals that they worship will be gone
And the man who spurred us on
Sits in judgement of all wrong
They decide and the guest star sings the song

I'll tip my hat to the new treatment theory
Take a bow for the new drug therapy
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again

The change, it had to come
We knew it all along
We were wrong on our first guess, that is all...
And the bloodwork looks the same
Patient history ain't changed
We just suck at seeing writing on the wall...

I'll tip my hat to the new treatment theory
Take a bow for the new drug therapy
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again
No, no!

I'll move myself and my employees aside
If we happen to be left half alive
I'll get all my pills and smile at the sky
For I know that the symptoms never lie

Do ya?

Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

There's nothing in the pus
Looks any different tous
And the hormones are replaced, by-the-bye
And the stomach pain on the left
Is now the lung pain on the right
And the beards have all grown longer overnight

I'll tip my hat to the new treatment theory
Take a bow for the new drug therapy
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again
Don't get fooled again
No, no!

Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

Ever since I was a young boy
I've played the internet
From Wikis down to Digg
I seen it all I bet
But I ain't seen nothing like this
In any other link list
That X-K-C-D
Sure writes a mean comic

Quickly it went
Onto my bookmark list
Now with Rss-feeds
I can quickly get my hit
The servers fans start going
The counter takes each hit
That X-K-C-D
Sure writes a mean comic

He's not M. Night
There's probably no crazy twist
Not M. Night
His later comics won't suck d**k

How do you think he does it?
(I don't Know)
What makes him so good?

He's right up on my list
Next to Penny Arcade
His shirts are frickin' awesome
And raptors are waiting for their day
When they start opening our doors
Who do we know will be on it
That X-K-C-D
Sure writes a mean comic


Got this far and gave up. Sung to the tune of Pinball Wizard (Which I hope is obvious.)

Also, that last M Night movie sucked big time. I'm still slightly bitter.

This comic inspired me to listen to the Who. But when I loaded up Amarok I found that I didn't have My Generation. I'm sure I ripped that song, so I must've accidentally deleted it at some point :(

Ah well, I like Magic Bus better anyway, and I do have that.

The irony being that, more and more, the people who use the term 'n00b' are often the people who'd have been given that label in the past. There is something to be said, though, for finding things out for yourself - overt hostility to the ignorant is the way many communities encourage people to lurk or 'effing google it', improving the 'signal-to-noise ratio', so to speak - which is not to deny many take it too far.

It's also worth mentioning that there's a difference between the meaning of newb and noob - the former is just naive, the latter is gratuitously ignorant and abrasive and denies it.

I don't think I've ever heard "noob" used in a serious sense. In my experience, it's used in a light-hearted, jostling sort of way, but perhaps my experience is limited. I also don't see anything wrong with "newbie." It's just a cute way to say "novice." I don't quite understand why it would be a problem.

It's because so many people use "newbie" as an insult and not as a way to signify a lack of experience.
For example, a lot of Internet slang is almost common knowledge for most users. So, you'll often find that any time someone asks for clarification on the meaning of an acronym (QFT, AFK, TTYL, IMHO, IIRC) they're labeled a "newbie," or the more derogatory "noob," under the assumption that anyone with an Internet connection should have known the meaning years ago.

Also, KingAl's post above yours does a good job of differentiating between "newbie" or "newb" and "noob" or "n00b."

FUNNY comic - great riff on The Who's music and most excellent use of a term invented by Heinlein in '61 with a nice nod to the total doofass T Stevens! All in a four panel strip - freakin' brilliant!

All you young whippersnappers laughing at us old geezers (53 and counting), just you remember that the internet, computers, and all that stuff you claim as your techno hood was invented by us old farts (along with the musical and geek references in this comic). You grok?

Now, do it again with cultural references that belong to your g.g.g.generation... ;-)

Seriously, awesome stuff...

I love, love with bold tags, today's comic. I 'discovered' The Who not long ago and its pure awesomeness made me a instant fan.

I would have loved it with bold and CAPS if the lyrics were based in Baba O'Rilley but alas it didn't happen.

...isn't it a little odd writing lyrics telling "N00bs" to get out to a tune that was released over 40 years ago? Riffing on the keyboard and then smashing it was inspired, particularly for those of us who remember The Who's antics.

I think Jesus was a guy sometime in the last two thousand years, and beyond that I have no clue. :(


Yeah, but dude listened to The Who. While curing lepers.

Little-know fact: listening to The Who enabled him to cure lepers :)


Well, it was about a 50/50 mix of The Who and Being A High Level Cleric (srsly guys, what's the DC for casting resurrection on YOURSELF?)
But, it doesn't have a saving throw!
Still, just managing to cast at all while being dead is impressive enough.


So now the question remains:

What's the DC of the Concentration check of casting *while dead*?
And what are the penalties of dead casting anyhow? I acknowledge that Jesus may already have Silent Spell and Still Spell.
Kawa likes these things:
Spanish Ninja Bodyguard
math, anime, more!
Origami, Florida
New York, and xkcd.

I take it you don't want to hear about how I thought this was a parody of the Superbowl Shuffle?

I beg your pardon! I am neither. Yet, when everyone sees how awesome my shirt is, they'll want to give me money for being a person so awesome that I'd have a shirt like that. Just get a shirt like that and try it out yourself.
