This is who "they" are...

https://m.

"It's like a normal times square day on 42nd street
I feel like trashing some windows and crunching some feet
I watch society crumble and I just laugh (hee hee)
They soon will see what it's like to be the other half

But I'm trying
Said I'm trying to forget
And it ain't happened yet

I musta woke up this morning with a bug up my ass
I think I'll just haul off and belt the next jerk that I pass
My old man says I'm just a stoned little punk
But he keeps himself a pistol and he's always drunk

I know
Something's gonna give

Pretty soon
I know it
Something's gonna give
I wanna live
I wanna mess thing whole world around
Go on and poison all the water, use up all the air
Blow your stupid heads off, see if I could care
Put me down but don't blame me for what you did
'cause inside everyone is a heavy metal kid

I was a sweet little kid once
Now I'm a full grown crank
And when I die I'll probably come back as a sherman tank
I know that I could make this world so peaceful and calm
If I could only get my hands on a hydrogen bomb"

The inner mind of a violence addict. Todd nails it!

2. Yes, the Todd, brilliant!

Never saw him in concert, one of my most regrettable things in life!

I was at an upscale pet store in the mid 1970's, squatting down looking at the bottom row of kittens. Suddenly I heard a voice I recognized, I turned my head up to see, and towering above me was Todd. He was admiring the tarantulas. I must have had a look of incredible shock on my face, for he just looked at me. I stood up slowly and awkwardly said hi. There he is my idol standing next to me, all I can do is say hi and walk away in a daze.

I'm listening to the Utopia album right now, which I got when it first came out. What a piece of mastery!

3. One of the great unsung geniuses of rock 'n' roll.

 

Only saw him once - on the "Ra" tour with the four-man, including Todd, version of Utopia.

Still dig out Something/Anything and A Wizard/A True Star on a regular basis.

4. Is so, hifiguy.

"23. Todd Rundgren

Had this been a list of who should be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with the ability to amalgamate the combined categories of performing, songwriting and producing it would have to be believed that Todd Rundgren would easily be in the top ten of this list. As it stands, the Hall does not combine those categories and chooses to induct each category separately. Needless, to say we are ranking the same way."
