List Rules Because Hendrix was such an iconic live player, vote on the songs that most move you, regardless of whether you love a live or studio version. Songs by other artists that Jimi covered are allowed.

List of Jimi Hendrix songs, ranked from best to worst by the Ranker community. Simply put, Jimi Hendrix is one of the most iconic guitarists in rock history. Hendrix was a key figure of the psychedelic era, and his brilliant approach to the electric guitar has influenced countless musicians. Whether leading the Jimi Hendrix Experience or his looser, jammier bands like Band of Gypsys, the man burned incredibly bright in a short time, even producing one of the best albums of all time with his debut, Are You Experienced.
 
This list includes "All Along the Watchtower," "Purple Haze" and other all-time favorites. All of Hendrix's biggest singles are here, but diehard fans know there are plenty of classic songs to vote on besides the radio hits. Music videos and audio videos are included next to each track name, so if you haven't heard a song you can listen to it right here on this list.
