Magic Bus è un brano dei Who, tra i loro più popolari e sempre suonato ai concerti; fu scritto da Pete Townshend e pubblicato con l’album-compilation Magic Bus: The Who On Tour (1968).
John Entwistle, il bassista, ha dichiarato di odiare questa canzone a causa della parte di basso che è costruita su un’unica nota ripetuta fino alla nausea per tutto il pezzo. E il suo odio cresceva quando, in alcune esibizioni live, la durata superava gli otto minuti.
