The Who who produced the songs for the CSI franchised crime dramas, have requested that their songs are no longer used. The songs used are Who are You for CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Won't Get Fooled Again for CSI: Miami and Baba O'Reilly for CSI: New York.
"I'm just bored of hearing the same three bars from each song," said Roger Daltry, who wrote the songs. "As much as I like that Waaaaaaha bit, it does pale."
CBS, who produce the very popular CSI shows are disappointed.
"Pete Townsend and Roger Daltry were always big fans of the shows," said CBS Head of Scheduling, Fox Mulder. "We approached The Who band members after the pilot for Las Vegas. They saw it and it was Keith Moon who suggested Who Are You."
When the CSI franchise expanded to Miami and New York, Roger Daltry approached CBS with other songs for the shows to use.
"Yeah, it's true," said Daltry. "I did quite like the idea of our songs wailing out on TV three times a week. But let's be honest, that was over ten years ago. It's just dull man."
With the news that The Who are pulling permission, CBS are looking for new songs that share a theme but are distinctive enough for the shows to have their own identity.
"We're thinking Britney," said Mulder. "Womanizer for Las Vegas , Baby One More Time for New York and Oops I did it Again for Miami. If Horatio Caine lets us. He's got mean, hasn't he?"
