"Going Mobile" is a song by The Who. It was released as a Rock Band downloadable single and as part of The Best of The Who (Rock Band Edition) pack on July 15, 2008.

The song is about taking a vacation by riding around in a car with no particular destination. It was something Pete Townshend liked to do.

Pete Townshend wrote this. It was part of his "Lifehouse" project, which was a film script featuring The Who in a future world where Rock 'n' Roll saves the masses. When the movie lost funding, The Who scrapped plans for a double album and released most of the songs on Who's Next. This was much lighter and more simplified than the other songs on the album.

For the solo, Townshend ran his guitar through a device called an Envelope Follower. It was a type of synthesizer distortion that made it sound like he was playing under water.
