[edit] Enough References?

Currently, there is only one reference on this page, and I think that by itself is unexplanitory, so I think this page needs to be deleted. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 20:17, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

NO, there are four. Some idiots deleted them all. --Jellote 20:19, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
Don't call other users "idiots". Now then, whether the other three references actually apply to The Who is something to debate, not something that either side should take for granted. --Jay (Talk) 20:21, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
First of all, they're not legit references. A lot of people do these things that were removed. Second of all, personally attacking users isn't going to get you anywhere. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 20:22, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
I didn't mean idiots, and I'm sorry. But these are what we need to discuss:
Theses are the references. They all seem legit to me, but we need to discuss them fisrt I guess. I think all four all good, but maybe number 3 is a bit of a stretch. Oh, and don't forget the page title for Kick-a-Ball. That works. Oops, no it doesn't. --Jellote 20:25, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
I, too, think #3 is a stretch. And I flat-out don't believe #2 - am I really to believe that The Who wrote lyrics like "She took me to different places like the University Bookstore" or "And the circles, and the ages, and the ages"? Maybe you want to reword that to say that the song is a similar style (I'm not familiar enough with The Who to actually know how accurate that is, though.) However, #1 is currently on the vacation page. --Jay (Talk) 20:28, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
That leaves it down to two, which still isn't enough. I'm still going with delete and putting it all on Popular Music References if not already there. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 20:33, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
Jellote did remember that there was one in Kick-a-Ball correctly, however; he just forgot where: Strong Mad's song... so the question is, are those three relevant enough? --Jay (Talk) 20:35, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
Ref: #3. Check out the Wikipedia article for Instrument destruction; Apparently, Pete Townshend was the first rock artist who smashed guitars onstage on a regular basis. However, pretty much every rock artist worth his salt has done the same, from Ritchie Blackmore (Deep Purple/Rainbow) and Paul Simonon (The Clash) to Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails) and Matthew Bellamy (Muse). So, unless Wikipedia is lying (and it is quite possible), the ritual of destroying musical instruments originated from The Who, but has since been performed by a wide variety of artists, both old and modern. Perhaps we could try rewriting the fact to something like "Marzipan almost smashes Carol in the "Cool Tapes" scene, an action which was first performed onstage by Pete Townshend." – The Chort 18:42, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
That's a good wording. - 19:02, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
Most of these references are a stretch at best. Delete. StarFox 19:37, 8 August 2009 (UTC)
Well, I beg to differ! Keepsies! Espemon333 00:53, 12 September 2009 (UTC)

This article looks solid enough now to stay. There is no strong consensus going either way on this talk page, but The Chort's research tipped the scales toward keep. And it looks to me like this article is covered by the Inclusion Guidelines. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 04:06, 12 April 2010 (UTC)

I agree that most of these are a stretch, especially, "you are forgiven". This could just as easily be a reference to Jesus Christ.--.Johnny Jupiter! talk cont 19:11, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
