"Hey Kid" is the second official single from Matt Willis, released on August 14, 2006. It is taken from Willis's debut solo album Don't Let It Go to Waste. "Hey Kid" also appears in the 2006 teen film John Tucker Must Die and the action packed teen film Alex Rider:Stormbreaker, and therefore will be on both the films soundtracks.

The lyrics of this song are about the days after Busted, Willis' original band, split.

This song features two music videos, one being the main video and the other to fit the story of John Tucker Must Die.

On August 20, the song entered the UK Top 75 at #61, based solely on download sales. The following week it climbed to #11 due to the physical release of the single.

The B-Side "Me And Your Mother" was also featured on Willis' debut album as a hidden track
