"Jimi Thing" is a song by American rock group Dave Matthews Band. It was released in 1995 as the second single from their debut album Under the Table and Dreaming. It failed to reach any noteworthy position on the charts,[1] like "Typical Situation" (and unlike "What Would You Say", "Ants Marching" or "Satellite"), but has grown into a popular live song played by the band. It was first performed in 1991 and has been performed over 1000 times as of July 2015.[2] The song has featured many guest artists, including Warren Haynes, Tim Reynolds, Trey Anastasio and Dicky Betts.[2]
