Roger Daltrey (left) and Pete Townshend of The Who perform at the 2017 Outside Lands Music Festival at Golden Gate Park on Sunday, Aug. 13, 2017, in San Francisco, Calif. The pair performed "Won’t Get Fooled Again" with classroom instruments on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey of the legendary rock band The Who traded in their signature wailing electric guitars and keyboards for a bevy of classroom instruments during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

The pair were accompanied by Fallon and members of his house band The Roots on “Won’t Get Fooled Again.”

The rundown: Datrey, vocals, tambourine; Townshend, vocals, toy guitar; Fallon, vocals, Casio keyboard, wood Block; Questlove, bongos, banana shaker, hair pick; Kamal Gray, xylophone; James Poyser, melodica; Captain Kirk, ukulele; Mark, kazoo, orange shaker; Tuba Gooding Jr., kazoo, apple shaker; Stro, drum machine and Black Thought, tambourine.

Hopefully, Townsend’s guitar doesn’t meet the same fate during the band’s upcoming Pittsburgh concert May 30 in PPG Paints Arena. The band opened it’s Moving On tour May 7 in Grand Rapids, Mich.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
