Album: Electric Ladyland
Complex says: Inarguably the most well-covered song in the Hendrix catalogue. It’s the easiest to learn and impossible for any guitarist not to feel like a god when he or she rips it loud and proud in public. The lyrical boasts alone fill you in on what kind of god Hendrix envisioned himself as, and what kind of MC he would've been as well:. “Well I stand up next to a mountain / Chop it down with edge of my hand / I pick up all the pieces and make an island / Might even raise a little sand." Watch the throne indeed—Poseidon wuz here.
