Who? Definitely the Who for me, My Generation is one of my favourite songs. 

Long Tall Sally or I'm Down (sang by Paul)?

I'm Down

I don't think this has been asked yet, so...

George as a Beatle or George's solo career?

Geometry, wisdom, tangerines... "The time is gone, the song is over, thought I'd something more to say..."

Also known as Egg-Rock, Egg-Roll, E-George, Eggy, Ravioli, Eggroll Eggrolli...

Purple stuff... ellipses...

Hmm. Did George in his solo career release 20-or-so songs as good or better in cumulative quality than his 20-odd Beatles originals? Maybe; I've heard no more than a dozen examples of his post-1973 output. But, crucially, none of his solo songs featured John, Paul and Ringo as fellow performers. So, Beatles over solo for me.

EDIT: Sorry, Gerell beat me to it!
So, assuming we're talking about onstage antics ALONE without regard for the music...I'll have to give it to Pete, reluctantly, since Jimi's music means WAY more to me than The Who (as great as they often were.) Hendrix admittedly stole the guitar-smashing gimmick from Townshend, and he actually did it much, much less frequently. Also, Pete probably did it with a lot more conviction. Jimi did it merely as a calculated effort to draw publicity early on, and grew to hate having to do it to please audience members who apparently didn't care what he played, so long as he did it with his guitar between his legs as if it were a giant you-know-what. -And that naturally made him unhappy, and he took more and more drugs to keep the unhappiness at bay; and the result was the second-greatest tragedy in rock history. (And the SINGLE biggest tragedy as far as music alone was concerned, says me: He had more great songs left in him than our beloved John. I truly believe that, sorry...) Jimi's onstage gimmicks helped to kill him, in other words, and so I've no choice but to condemn them and declare Townshend the winner. (And even at that, Pete never did anything as epic and legendary as Jimi did at Monterey.)
