What movies have used this song?

Teenage Wasteland by The Who

I was listening to it yesterday after a long while of not hearing it and I could almost remember a movie I have seen which used the song pretty well. I just can'ttttt put my finger on it.

So, it's probably gonna be more then a couple movies, but which ones have used this song?

American Beauty is the most recent that I can recall (I only remember it form the trailer, not the actual movie, though it is on the sdtk).

I just googled "movie soundtrack: baba o'reilley"...(The song is really called Baba O'Reilly) and came up with the 1997 movie Prefontaine, for one. I'm sure there are others, too.

Not a movie, but the TV series CSI: NY uses the song in its opening titles.

This works better when spelled "Baba O'Riley". I'm looking at a Who album, and this is the spelling it gives. A googlefight provides more evidence in favor of this spelling.

O'Riley is indeed correct; the song was partly (musically) inspired by composer Terry Riley (and Pete Townshend's guru Meher Baba).
