Hey Joe" tells the story of a man who is on the run and planning to head to Mexico after shooting his wife.However, diverse credits and claims have led to confusion as to the song's true authorship and genesis.
The earliest known commercial recording of the song is the late-1965 single by the Los Angeles garage band the The Leaves; the band then re-recorded the track and released it in 1966 as a follow-up single which became a hit.
Currently, the best-known version is The Jimi Hendrix Experience's 1966 recording, their debut single. The song title is sometimes given as "Hey Joe, Where You Gonna Go?" or similar variations.
