Who's On Stage?

Animaniacs had an amazing amount of clever humor that was just as much fun for the adults as it was for the kids. Here is one of there quality skits. It's a retake of Abbott and Costello's "Who's on First" skit, but instead of baseball players, it's referring to bands at Woodstock.

This isn't really that funny unless you know that there are actually bands named 'The Who', 'Yes', and 'The Band'.
