Stone Free is a song by The Jimi Hendrix Experience. It was the first song that Jimi Hendrix wrote after he arrived in England. It was recorded on November 2, 1966 and released first in December 1966 as the B-side of Hendrix’s first single “Hey Joe”.

In December 1969 “Stone Free” was released as a single in the US, backed with “If 6 Was 9”.

The song is one of the few songs by Hendrix being in standard tuning.

The bassline for the song was borrowed from the Mar-Keys song “Philly Dog”.

Some sources state this song as being one of the earliest forms of Heavy Metal music, because of it’s over-driven guitar chords and solo, and the song’s loudness.

Supergrass recorded a cover of the song that was available on a limited-edition 7” vinyl companion disc to certain packagings of the 12” vinyl release of their debut album, I Should Coco.

Stone Free: A Tribute to Jimi Hendrix was also the name of a 1993 Jimi Hendrix tribute album featuring his songs performed by various artists, including Eric Clapton, Living Colour, The Cure and Pretenders.

Everyday in the week I'm in a different city
In my stay too long people try to pull me down
They talk about me like a dog, talkin' about the clothes I wear
But they don't realize they're the ones who's square
