“Jet” is a song from Paul McCartney and Wings’ Band on the Run album. The song peaked at #7 in both the UK and U.S. charts on March 30, 1974. Along with “Helen Wheels” and “Junior’s Farm”, it is another McCartney song where his primary inspiration for composing the song arose in daily life. It was recorded mainly at EMI’s studio in Lagos, Nigeria.

When first released, the single’s B-side was “Mamunia”, another track from Band on the Run. However, it was soon replaced with “Let Me Roll It”.

The song has been said to be about McCartney’s Labrador Retriever, named “Jet”.

The Australian rock band Jet gets their name from this song.
