"Jane" is a song by American rock band Jefferson Starship, released on their 1979 album Freedom at Point Zero. The song peaked on the US Billboard Hot 100 at No. 14 and spent three weeks at No. 6 on the Cash Box Top 100.[1] In Canada, the song peaked at No. 13.[2] Billboard Magazine described "Jane" as "a fiery track paced by stinging guitars and some burning rhythm work."[3] Cash Box described it as "an explosive rocker, with slashing guitars."[4] Record World called it a "driving rocker" and praised Mickey Thomas' vocals.[5] GQ in 2015 said it was a "perfect, complex, trash-gem work of art."[6]
