List of versions[edit]

I reverted to an earlier version & removed an anonymous edit which pasted the song list from heyjoe.org Design 09:59, 31 January 2006 (UTC

Reference 2 should be changed to www.franzen.tk (formerly heyjoe.org and hey-joe.tk). Reference 3 and 4 are on this site as well (Hey Joe Versions)

Reference 3 : "Hey Joe Versions" to franzen.tk should be changed to http://heyjoeversions.wordpress.com/ since tulips.tk will be closed soon. (January 23, 2011) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Yumemusic (talkcontribs) 11:43, 23 January 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the heads up. I have changed the ref accordingly. --Kohoutek1138 (talk) 13:22, 23 January 2011 (UTC)

Stevie Ray Vaughan[edit]

I own the Montreux dvd 1982 and 1985 and there is no cover version of Hey Joe on it. I highly doubt Stevie has covered this song. But if he has can you please find a link or some proof that it is covered by him. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.130.16.59 (talk) 07:22, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

I just checked the Legacy Recordings website [1] and you are right. The tracklist for the DVD & CD releases dont contain "Hey Joe". I'll remove the reference in the article.--Design (talk) 11:52, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

Eddie Murphy[edit]

Eddie Murphy also did a cover of "Hey Joe" on his second album Love's Allright.

The Doors[edit]

Currently listed under "recorded versions" in this article is The Doors (1966). This needs a citation or should be removed. --Design 11:33, 8 March 2007 (UTC)

Buckwheat Zydeco[edit]

Sometime in the early 90s, Buckwheat Zydeco did a fantastic version of Hey Joe on either Dave Letterman or the Tonight Show. Dont know the date, but sometime in the 1990-1993 period I think. I believe its on YouTube somewhere, I dont know if he recorded it on any of his albums. Murple 04:56, 17 May 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:JimiHendrix HeyJoe 1967.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:JimiHendrix HeyJoe 1967.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Removed tag[edit]

I have removed the tag on this article suggesting that it "needs additional citations for verification". This is because I have edited the article extensively and inserted multiple inline references to remedy this problem. Kohoutek1138 15:32, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Removed Kusters Last Band from article[edit]

Having added a [citation needed] tag a couple of months ago, which has not been addressed, I have decided to delete the mention of Kusters Last Band since it does not meet WP:VERIFY criteria. In addition, I can find no mention of a band of this name, featuring members named John Catapano or John Smith anywhere on the internet. I believe that the mention of this band in the article is an example of WP:VANITY on behalf of a particular editor or editors. In addition, I feel that such a mention of this band might be in contravention of certain parts of the WP:TRIVIA, WP:MUSIC and WP:SPAM guidelines. Kohoutek1138 00:03, 22 September 2009 (UTC)

A.R.E. Weapons[edit]

A.R.E. weapons have a song on their album Modern Mayhem called "Hey Joey" that's probably a reference to hey Joe. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.14.16.133 (talk) 15:32, 3 October 2009 (UTC)

If you (or anyone else) can find a reliable, third-party reference that states categorically that the A.R.E. Weapons song is indeed a reference to or inspired by "Hey Joe", then we can include it in the article. --Kohoutek1138 (talk) 17:28, 3 October 2009 (UTC)

Removed Suzie Hendrix[edit]

I have removed the discography listing for "Suzie Hendrix (1978)", as it is unsourced and I can find no information about a 1970s musician of that name, or a recording. --Design (talk) 20:52, 12 August 2011 (UTC)

Too many covers of "Hey Joe"?[edit]

Why there is so many covers of "Hey Joe"? How many covers there are for "Hey Joe"? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 4.255.49.252 (talk) 06:15, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

Infoboxes[edit]

According to Template:Infobox single, "Released – This field should refer to the earliest known date" and "Label – "This field should refer to the label on which the single/album was originally released. Where significantly different versions have been released ... the later release date and/or record label should be mentioned in the article". No guidance is given for the use of single covers/labels, so later (non-original) images appear acceptable.

Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Layout provides some guidance regarding placement of article images, which are comparable to infoboxes: "Images should ideally be spread evenly within the article, and relevant to the sections they are located in" and "Generally, if there are so many images in a section that they strip down into the next section at 1024×768 screen resolution, that probably means either that the section is too short, or that there are too many images" (WP:LAYIM). A brief review of song Featured Articles and Good Articles does not show any articles with bunched or stacked infoboxes. Too many or wrongly placed infoboxes make an article appear cluttered and amateurish; in some cases they may be misleading, for example when an infobox for a later version shows up in a section about the original song. Infobox details can be included as prose in the appropriate section.

Since the writer (or credits) for the original Leave's single (P.D. arr. Mirwood Music) and Hendrix single (Trad. arr. Hendrix) differ from that mentioned in the article, these fields have been left blank with hidden notes. —Ojorojo (talk) 15:45, 15 July 2014 (UTC)
