- I grew up with this song - real ROCK AND ROLL
- No one know what it's like to be the Batman.
- Get to know what's behind your eyes --> go to TruthContest-com and read
- Old songs are so great. We need to remember the sound of the real music.
- I know. You seem to like the 'Sandman', we should talk, I could introduce
you to the airtight garage of Jerry Cornelius! God, it must suck to be
young, or at least immature.
- every time i hear "behind blue eyes" i say "white dragon"!!!!
- One of my all time favorites!
- I know that The Who is a rock legend but i like better Limp Bizkitz version
- Love the song but I think of Jethro tull Aqualung something similar
- These folks and MAYBE Anthony Steward Head are the only ones allowed to
play this song.
- LimpBizkit can suck it! Better in every way then the remake!
- No one know what it's like to be the Batman

- We have this thing at school, where we play the songs we want to practice
in music class. I played them this, and I was the only one who got
- I still can't believe this song was never used in Breaking Bad. I can't
help but think of Walter White when I hear the lyrics, they encapsulate his

- "Behind Blue Eyes" is sung from the point of view of the main villain of
Lifehouse, Jumbo. The lyrics are a first-person lament from Jumbo, who is
always angry and full of angst because of all the pressure and temptation
that surrounds him, and the song was intended to be his "theme song" had
the project been successful.
- I feel like this would have been perfect for the finale of Breaking Bad,
even better than Baby Blue. "My dreams, they aren't as empty as my
conscience seems to be.... My love is vengeance that's never free" C'mon,
how much better of a description can there be for Heisenberg!!!
- you my friend is the best kind of a troll. i respect you.
- The Who were so inspired by Limp Bizkit to do this song, before Limp
Biskit, The Who were nothing more than a pub band. they heard Fred Durst
and thought 'man we gotta cover that'.
- I read in a book Pete saying this song is about Nazi. Then I listened to it
- too right mate
