"Down on Me" is a traditional song from 1920s that became popular following its remake by Big Brother and the Holding Company.

Janis Joplin rearranged the song and created new lyrics. The song was originally released in the summer of 1967 and was featured on the band's debut album Big Brother & the Holding Company. The song would reach #42 on the charts, barely missing the Top 40 mark. A live, more aggressive version is featured on the 1973 Janis Joplin's Greatest Hits.
