“You’re Gonna Miss Me” is a 1966 single from the band 13th Floor Elevators from their album The Psychedelic Sounds of the 13th Floor Elevators.

The song peaked at number 55 on the Billboard Pop Singles chart in 1966, [1] being the most successful hit for the band.

It also reached the top 50 on the Cash Box charts late that year and was performed on American Bandstand,[2] where host Dick Clark asked Tommy Hall who was the head man of the group, to which Hall replied, “Well, we’re all heads”.

It has since become a garage rock classic, being included on the 1972 Nuggets: Original Artyfacts from the First Psychedelic Era compilation.

The song is part of the soundtrack of High Fidelity (based on the novel by Nick Hornby), prominently featured during the film’s introduction.
