In 1991 British rock band The Who contributed to Two Rooms: Celebrating the Songs of Elton John & Bernie Taupin a tribute album consisting of interpretations of sixteen songs written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin.

Somehow the testosterone fueled swagger of The Who’s cover of “Saturdays Night’s Alright For Fighting” is simply more believable than John’s finely crafted original, making the song feel like it had been a Who song all along.
