Man, you really seem to know everything there is to know about The Who.

Today remembered years of getting up in the AM listening to Dave Herman saying "Good just barely morning" over and over again which, like a lot of schtick, annoyed at first but eventually grew to be reassuring.

The reason "Beat It" was on rock radio at all in the '80s was due to the Eddie Van Halen guitar solo. Epic marketed it to programmers deliberately. That's pretty much why that MJ song and no others are on the list.

In related news, the only African Americans in the top 100 are Hendrix (43, 84) and the only women are Grace Slick (83) and Cyndi Lauper (86).
