Hands down deserves to be #1. This song is just so genuine and perfect, from Anthony's poetic lyrics and Chad's calm drums, to John's Hendrix-like chord playing interacting with Flea's melodically played bass lines. All transitioning into a more emotional song near the end which fits perfectly with the beginning of the song.

This is number 1 out of all of these songs. Red Hot Chili Peppers could easily beat Foo Fighters - Rorywilbren

You're telling me this ISN'T #1? Well, some people need a lesson the emotional depth behind this song.

It all started in 1988. Original guitarist Hillel Slovak died of a heroine overdose. Keidis was devestated. He wrote an emotional poem of his loss. In 1991, producer Rick Rubin found the poem and urged him to put the song on Blood Sugar Sex Magik. This became their most influential song of the 90's. How is this NOT the winner?


First comment? Huh. Well, Best. RHCP song. EVER!

Wait, Can't Stop outranks this? I'm calling witchcraft


Best Foo Fighters song ever, just an amazing how emotional it is and how they could create such a beautiful atmosphere. Although The Pretender is a good song, it doesn't even come close to being as good as this song.

Ever long is simply a fantastic song not sure how the pretender is better than this it has got to be the best song evert
