All about Red Hot Chili Peppers

The band’s first name, with their original lineup, was Tony Flow and the Miraculously Majestic Masters of Mayhem.
Red Hot Chili Peppers was taken from the nickname for Louis Armstrong’s 1920s jazz quintet.
Anthony Kiedis had a different upbringing: drugs were introduced by his father when he was aged just 11, lost his virginity to his father’s 18-year-old girlfriend when he was 12, got death threats from a drug dealer, and before his thirties, he got overdosed numerous times.

Under The Bridge

Length: 4:24


Opening Lyrics:

Sometimes I feel like I don’t have a partner
Sometimes I feel like my only friend
Is the city I live in, the city of angels
Lonely as I am, together we cry
I drive on her streets ’cause she’s my companion
I walk through her hills ’cause she knows who I am
She sees my good deeds and she kisses me windy
Well, I never worry, now that is a lie
I don’t ever wanna feel
Like I did that day
Take me to the place I love
Take me all the way
I don’t ever wanna feel
Like I did that day
Take me to the place I love
Take me all the way
Yeah, yeah, yeah


Length: 5:29

Release: 1999

Opening Lyrics:

Psychic spies from China try to steal your mind’s elation
And little girls from Sweden dream of silver screen quotation
And if you want these kind of dreams it’s Californication
It’s the edge of the world and all of Western civilization
The sun may rise in the East at least it’s settled in a final location
It’s understood that Hollywood sells Californication
Pay your surgeon very well to break the spell of aging
Celebrity skin, is this your chin, or is that war you’re waging?
First born unicorn
Hardcore soft porn
Dream of Californication
Dream of Californication
Dream of Californication
Dream of Californication
Marry me, girl, be my fairy to the world, be my very own constellation
A teenage bride with a baby inside getting high on information

Snow (Hey Oh)

Length: 5:34

Release: 2006

Opening Lyrics:

Come to decide that the things that I tried
Were in my life just to get high on
When I sit alone
Come get a little known
But I need more than myself this time
Step from the road to the sea to the sky
And I do believe that we rely on
When I lay it on
Come get to play it on
All my life to sacrifice
Hey oh
Listen what I say, oh
I got your hey oh
Now listen what I say, oh
When will I know that I really can’t go
To the well once more time to decide on?

Can’t Stop

Length: 4:29

Release: 2002

Opening Lyrics:

Can’t stop addicted to the shindig
Chop top he says I’m gonna win big
Choose not a life of imitation
Distant cousin to the reservation
Defunkt the pistol that you pay for
This punk the feeling that you stay for
In time I want to be your best friend
Eastside love is living on the Westend
Knock out but boy you better come to
Don’t die you know the truth is some do
Go write your message on the pavement
Burn so bright I wonder what the wave meant



Length: 4:15

Release: 1999

Opening Lyrics:

How long, how long will I slide?
Separate my side, I don’t
I don’t believe it’s bad
Slit my throat it’s all I ever
I heard your voice through a photograph
I thought it up and brought up the past
Once you know you can never go back
I gotta take it on the other side
Centuries are what it meant to me
A cemetery where I marry the sea
Stranger things could never change my mind
I gotta take it on the other side
Take it on the other side
Take it on, take it on
