No offense to SRV fans but Hendrix played SSB a million times better.
Jimi Hendrix was way ahead of his time doing this kind of guitar playing in 1969.. This is truly amazing.
howie phillips
you can hear the bombs drop; planes crashing and bullets being shot. its fucking amazing
My grandpa was in that crowd, and he always said that this was the best 5 minutes of his life.
hunter severson
This is a super deep political statement right?
Sean Rogers
My favorite version of our national anthem
David Ayarra
Home? We can't go home. There's a line men like us have to cross. If we're lucky, we do what's necessary, and then we die.
Sean O'Brien
Look at the stern look on his face @3:04 while he plays "taps", the tune played during soldiers funerals. this wasnt just a condemnation of the war, but the ballad of those who fought it. the respect and sadness for those forced to fight is there, you can see it in hie eyes.
sir wildeagle
fun fact:he was protesting against a the war in the us so you can hear him doing with his guitar explosions,alarms.screaming. and the trumpet in soliders funerals at the end...
David Ferrara
why the hell is there a Who song going at the same time
When he does the part with the bombs and people screaming it gives me chills..
My history teacher this past school year showed this to the class, and the majority of the class thought he was just crazy and didn't know how to even play guitar.
Max Teicher
Favorite star spangled banner performance
Jonathan Wilson
This would have to qualify as one of the greatest guitar performances in history. THIS is a big part of the reason Hendrix has ended up at #1 on so many "best guitarists of all time" lists and he deserves every bit of it.
best political statement of all time
I remember doing Jimmie Hendrix for my black history month project and played this for the class. I was in fourth grade.
Bob barker Barker
My grandpa was actually in the crowd. He said this was the greatest musical experience of his life.
respect the classics man! it's Hendrix!
Cortez Benevidas
At 2:20 you can hear a helicopter and then jets swooping in dropping bombs.....fucking crazy
Natalia Kruschev
This was no anti-American song. This was no condemnation of the American people. This was a condemnation of the US government sending young men off to die in a war that we had no business being in. I hate communism. But we had no business putting our boys in a war where we could have just as easily remained as military advisors to the South Vietnamese. Jimi Hendrix did not hate America. Jimi Hendrix hated the war that the government forced young men to die in. Jimi Hendrix hated the Man.
What's with Who Are You at the beginning?
Michael Garcia
Terrific camera work. We finally get to see the guitar at around 1:56.
90s Baby
Came here to cleanse my ears after Fergie disrespected every US citizen lol
Eric Gray
Dude, don't upload a half-assed video. The crescendo is epic. The ending is what invokes the most emotions.
None Of Your Business
It's said Jimi wanted to emulate the sounds of war with this song. At first, it starts off pretty traditional, then unique noises that aren't apart of the song starts coming in. The sounds emulate war, (guns, bombs, missiles.) Drums represent running 1:01 and throughout the song There's specifically a missile sound at 1:34 . Multiple screams at 1:47 . Bomb 2:00 Ambulance sirens at 2:09 and 2:19 More missiles 2:24 to 2:50 Goes into playing TAPS to represents the soldiers who have died for our country at 3:05

THE JEMI HENDRICKS EXPERIENCE !!!!👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎸🎵🎵🎵🎵
Consistently Random
I didn't realize until now that Jimi was trying to mimic the rockets and bombs in the song with his guitar and even taps to protest the war.
If he were alive today and did this, Republicans would be blasting him for disrespecting the national anthem.
The parts that deviate from the song sound like something Michael Bay would add to his movies.
Reynaldo Stufano
"Respeta los clásicos, hermano, es Hendrix..."
Jaydee Paquette
As an anti-war rendition of the American anthem, what with the short but clear sounds of nuclear bomb sirens going off, bombs exploding as they come in contact with buildings, women and children screaming, machine guns shooting off and such, I think this is the biggest middle finger/mockery of The United States of America and the ultimate subliminal message. It really is amazing to hear the message Jimmy's REALLY trying to send with this version he's playing of the American anthem. He's not trying to demonstrate America and how it runs things is something to be proud of, but ashamed of instead.

Tabs for this version of the song?
Just watched "Voodoo Child" on Netflix. He didn't even get to enjoy "doing something fresh" with his envisioned big band after a break from touring. Bummed me out. He sounded so positive about it, too. Although he did say at the same time, " I don't know if I'll make it to 28. I don't see myself being around when I'm 80..." Gave me the chills.
john ruthger
i wonder how many people in that audience realized that they were bearing witness to something truly special, to a once-a-generation act, a cultural moment even
Vinny Roth
listening to Jimi today on July 4th and proud as Hell to be an American!
Beavus And Bomber
Spec ops the line

As a white, middle class, Midwestern man, I believe THIS should be the OFFICIAL version of "Banner" as it incorporates the tone of war, economic and racial injustice but also the positives and hopes and dreams of the U.S. in such a complex manner. Sadly, I do NOT believe the U.S. will go on forever. The Egyptians, The Greeks then Romans, various Chinese dynasties ALL thought they would never disappear. But I was stunned when I first played this in 1979 at age 15!: so jarring and so beautiful.
Ethan Males
Just got home from the rock and roll hall of fame and i seen that guitar
Pedro Lopez
The only version that matters
Peace sells
This is the Greatest moment in rock history without a doubt. God speaked to an entire nation with only guitar and without a single word.

One of the most iconic musicians of all time if not the number 1

Alexander Glinskiy
Look! No smartphones! How awesome is that? =)
The G0ldenApple
Jimmy Hendrix's version of the Star Spangled Banner is powerful enough to go against The Soviet Anthem.
Alessio Riina
2:21 is he tapping?
Wolfenstein: The New Order, anyone??? J is Hendrix
Aswin Anil
Now, this should be played at full volume at every NFL game.
Mitch Rimland
Jimi served also. That makes this even more awesome !
Jon Lemay
I like how people are trying to add meaning to his playing and interpret it as if they knew what was going on in his mind and what his intentions were.... maybe he was just fucked up on drugs and was fucking around
TG Special
I don't think Jimi was making a political statement. He just wanted to play a kick ass version of our National Anthem. That He did.
Slots Player
I agree with Beth... absolutely truly amazing and a defining moment of our population. I do not believe there will ever be a musical or performing event as this again! 
Laverne Stubbles
Respect the classics man it's Hendrix
Michelle McDonald
the baddest MF guitar player to walk the face of this earth my OPINION
Greatest Ever
1:35 sounds like people screaming in war
Thugg Staz
Le plus gros clash de l'histoire de la musique.../The biggest diss track in music history...
Jimi was so cool 😎
Jonathan Hylgaard
My father was at this concert, right before he was forced to go to Vietnam to fight in the war. Right before he left, he told me it was the best musical experience of his life. I never saw him again.
Marc Macias
Much better than fergies national anthem😤
Mitch Ryder
Way ahead of his time is an understatement, Guys and girls now can't do what he did 40 yrs ago
If they played this version no one would dare take a knee!!
Robert Lane
He captured the chaos and terror of War and Patriotism in 3 minutes. Top that.
Wojciech Zienowicz
Anthony Simeone
Happy birthday, America! Thank you, Jimi!
Xx xX
I had to come here after Fergie 's singing the USA anthem.
The way he played makes me thinking his guitar was a kind of mystic animal...
What ever happened to the original video of this that had like, 3 million views and a different camera angle? :(
The Coronet Shop

Isaac Wells
Happy 4th of July
William Darkhölme
Jimi Hendrix may your legacy lives on in all of us.
Jimi Hendrix did his share of kneeling "at work." And he played the National Anthem. But not at the same time. Donald Trump HATES this video. Well, fuck him!
dawson wood
And the fact that he did this wile tripping on acid is insane
The Dark Vampiric Girl
I’ll always love you Jimi 🖤
debbie duran
Jimmie Hendricks did not perform at Woodstock !! Don't believe Woodstock documentaries !! It was just a cover smoke screen for the fake NASA moon landing! Go do your research people!!
Draconovici Dracoola
Back here because of people performing the anthem with their own spin. Reminded me of when hendrix did this.
Verona Gomez
He rocked it U.S.A.
James Grove
Play this at a Football Game think tank
Potatowizard 4599
The simulated wartime sounds reminds me very closely to Metallica's style of playing in One and Fade to Black. This really adds a deeper meaning to the song and shows true talent. Being able to make nearly insane noise and have it sound good with the context.
Pamala Brock
That's my left handed guitar player that visits me in spirit!
Russell Silber
Most people don't know Jimmy was US Army Airborne. Check it out
Frank Jr Dulworth
Hendrick is the very best I ever here outstanding 😎
god bless the usa
