Song Info  The Kids Are Alright - The Who
The Kids Are Alright - The Who
"The Kids Are Alright" is a song written by Pete Townshend of The Who. It appears as the seventh track on the group's first album My Generation (1965).

It was not released as a single until more than six months after it first appeared on the LP, first in the United States, and in the UK the following month. While not a huge hit at the time (reaching number 41 in the UK and number 85 in the US), the song, along with the album's title track, became anthems for the group and the Mod subculture of England in the 1960s. It later became the name of the documentary for the band in 1979.

The song uses a standard I-IV-V chord progression in the key of D while the chorus uses a ii-V-IV-I chord progression. The song was edited for the U.K. single and this version has become much more common than the original full-length U.K. album version. The edit of the song features a substantially shortened instrumental break.

A promotional film for the song was shot in Hyde Park in July or August of 1966. In addition to appearing on My Generation, the beginning of the song can be heard on Quadrophenia, after the song "Helpless Dancer" has faded out.
