Rock gods The Who are re-recording their anthemic 1965 hit My Generation next week (04SEPT05) with British pop boyband McFly.

The hitmakers are teaming up to launch British music store HMV's new music download website, and the release will also act as a fundraiser for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

And the surprise coupling may seem unlikely, but Who frontman ROGER DALTREY - a patron of the charity - insists people should never underestimate the importance of youth.

He says, "Without teenagers, with their energy and passion for music, we would not have rock 'n' roll as we know it."
