Best Red Hot Chili Peppers SongsRHCP-fan37
The Top TenXW
Once you listen to this song, you just can't leave it. I'm sure you'll love as much as you do yourself
The Red Hot Chili Peppers career can be divided into two halves " the period before and after Under the Bridge.
I'm sorry but this song takes the cake I love this song even though a lot of there under played music is still very good
Favorite song of all time. The Chili Peppers had a lot of big hits that are in my top 5, such as Dani California, Give It Away, Californication and Scar Tissue, but none of the other songs ever came close to how good this one is. It's completely different from the others because it connects to feelings we all have, such as loneliness. The song can, as its lyrics say, take you to the place you love. It's such a mellow, slow, yet hard-hitting, powerful, and thought-provoking tune. This is in the top five for the greatest alternative rock songs of all time, and I think "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by Nirvana is the only thing that can beat, or at the very least contend with this masterpiece. Simply put, there will never be a song like this one ever again.V129 Comments
Unlike anything the Peppers ever wrote. The intro and verses are haunting as hell, the chorus is really catchy, and the guitar solo is just beautiful. No wonder Flea said this is the best song they ever wrote! No. 1 for me too!
Epic song by an epic band.
Better than their old stuff.
I believe this is where they matured into real musicians.
For me the best song of RHCP
A complete song with great vocals and lyrics and with equally good guitar and bass and drums too
Best song everV108 Comments
Not only is the guitar riff amazing, but the bass has a pretty catchy tune as well.
Snow is the best song of RHCP ever... Just listen to the riff, you'll understand exactly how good John Frusciante is...
Amazing guitar riff, I think this is the best of of RHCP, I really enjoy listening this song
This is surely their best song.V120 Comments
Great Song! Once listen to then ever want to listening! Easiely said: one of the great songs ever produced!
A real gritty song. You can feel the pain and in the song.
Its one of the famous guitar riffs and also one of the most amazing!
RHCP best one ever! Live an unbelieveable thing!
Its pretty hotV68 Comments
Epic vocals.. Electrifying guitar and bass.. Guaranteed to get your spirits up after every listen..
the guitar solo at the start is just incredible.... so refreshing
The bass at the beginning is just ridiculous and it flows perfectly into the rest of the song which is AMAZING! Definitely my favorite chili peppers song which is saying something because they have so many good songs
This song is epic!V73 Comments
Such a beautiful, mellow song. It's so chill.
Beautiful song. you could just sit back and love this song no matter who the hell you are... the melody and vocals are so beast, and the guitar solo is really catchy
I have never gotten sick of this song since it came on the scene
Such a wonderful feeling that you get when listening to this song. Definitely shows that the chili peppers can pull off chill music along with hard funk rock.V52 Comments
The most awesome song I think is from RHCP. The more I listen, the more I want to hear it. The more I hear it, the better I feel. Its so exciting and its chorus is so cool. I thought it was pretty good
The song is great and the video is even better! - thomasnirvanastroud
Lyrics tell an awesome story... Even though it might not make sense, it's really fun to sing along with and great to dance to. Video is pretty rocking too... Definitely one of their best songs.
Such a hauntingly beautiful piece with a tragic back story. Incredibly nostalgic and will always have a special place in my heart.V57 Comments
Such a good driving beat, with a feel-good chorus.
My favorite song of all time. Just an iconic song that never seems to get old. It shows all sides of rhcp and showcases everything amazing about this band.
NO DOUBT THAT THIS IS THE BEST! Guitar palming impressive as well as John Frusciantes heavenly voice mixed in with Flea's fast funk bass skills. My favourite song since I was 8.
One of their first songs I heard, and even now, still my favourite.V33 Comments
My "favorite song ever" for the longest period of time!
What is this doing here!? I was expecting this to be right at the top of the list! This was their first huge hit and still one of their best songs to this day, I still listen to this nowadays.
One of their first and most recognizable hits.
Should be in the Top 3 songs periodV35 Comments
This is one of the songs that will have its relevance and touch humans to their bones still in 30 years. It can stand any comparison with Let it be or Like a rolling stone. It is perfect in every respect.
Fruciante's genius, words cannot describe the emotion he must have out into that beautiful heart touching solo
Always going to remain as my favorite number along with "venice queen", "Don't forget me" and definitely "stadium arcadium"
9 singles and this song in the top 10. It's a shame that the best work is heard the least because it was only released on the album. Wet sand, slow cheetah, hey hard to concentrate and 23 other stadium arcadium so many people don't here the album gets based off the 5 singlesV58 Comments
Can't believe I am the first person to list this, Just listen to it, I can only wondered what would've been RIP Hillel Slovak
It's a very good and melodic song, I'd also say it's a bit psychedelic. And the music video was cool too, but slightly a bit dark at the end though.
Oh my god, this should be top 10. Have any of you even listened to RHCP pre John Frusciante? Not that John isn't one of my favourite guitarists ever, but Halil Slovak really created the Chilies trademark sound and this was one of his best.V1 Comment
This is probably their most underrated song. The lyrics and the bass are just great.
It's bitter baby,
And it's very sweet.
I'm on a rollercoaster,
but I'm on my feet.
Easily their best song. I love the guitar solo and the overall summer feel to it. It really makes me feel good when I listen to it.
Its just perfect the opening guitar sound like oasis, and the bassline is very melodic, the way Anthony sings its awesome
This should switch with By the Way, and Around the World should swap with Wet Sand. - PowerfultekinV56 Comments
The bass, the guitar, it is said the gods listened to this song and made the earth.. The bass intro in the beginning is fantastic and the guitar during the chorus is just so melodious.. Love this song
No comment is needed here, other than the amazing bass (especially in the intro and solo/end. :O
One of the BEST RHCP songs of all time-great vocals, guitar, drums and bass. Also, the lyrics are deep and really powerful. I love this song! It mos' definitely' deserves a spot in the top 10!
This should be top 7 right?V17 Comments

Amazing Should Higher Like Number 10 Really Good Song Love It - mneilan
The chorus is so chill. I remember first hearing this song on vacation on a Florida beach and instantly became addicted to it. "... And in this perfect weather, we'll find a place together"
"Coming down, no not today"V33 Comments
This song is incredible, you can't compare this song to some of the newer songs, simply because of the fact that it has so much deep emotion to it, that you know comes straight from the heart, especially when you hear some of the live ones such as the one at la Cigale in France, John completely nails in a solo and the intro is superb, seriously this song is amazing..
THIS SONG IS WONDERFULL... Such emotion that brings to the listener... This song MUST be on TOP TEN! This song is much better than Wet Sand and Soul To Squeeze together...
This is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever listened to, and certainly one of the best the Chili Peppers have produced; I certainly won't forget it! Anthony Kiedis' vocals here are just effortlessly captivating, and the guitar is excellent - a perfect melding of the simplistic and the breathtaking (the second verse in particular).
Should be better known. Amazing song.V21 Comments
This is one of the greatest songs ever, is has such a funky sound with a wondrous rhythm. This song honestly is so catchy I find myself getting it stuck in my head while running. It has such a raw bass and guitar together that is just mesmerizing.
I adore this song. Funky and catchy, you can sing to this one and dance to it. It is just an incredible song and it is on an incredible album.
How is storm in a teacup not even a contender?! It should be way higher than wet sand and soul to squeeze
An intense hard guitar rock song!V6 Comments
Dafuq is wrong with all of you! Its a helluva song! Great riffs, great chorus damn great song! No wonder it was played in the movie The Karate Kid.
Awesome cover this song pulses with energy its nuts
How is this not in the top 10? Their cover of Stevie Wonder's song is brilliant.
This is really better than the original by Stevie Wonder.V9 Comments
This song is just beautiful. Frusciante's backing vocals on the chorus just amplify its awesomeness... The overlayed guitars are arranged in a perfect manner, while still retaining the worn in feel that shows the humanity in his work.
My favorite song by RHCP. y isn't it on the top 10!?!?! - Flyingcobra
Underrated as hell. Seriously, what other song has four guitar riffs simultaneously overlapping each other, doing completely different things, and yet creating this texture to the main melody that is unbelievable. There's no question that this song is dominated by John Frusciante, but so what? Definitely a masterpiece by RHCP.
Every time this song comes on, I get tears in my eyes... so beautiful, so heartbreaking, absolutely amazing.V26 Comments
Just watch the live in Slane version of this, changed my view on john Frusciante's guitar playing... Truly amazing!
That starting guitar riff is more beautiful than anything else.
One of my 3 favorite songs by RHCP. About Gloria Scott. Just so beautiful!
Just amazing!V12 Comments
This song deserves top5 spot.. What is it down down here?
Awesome song... Crazy bassline, john's harmonics
The video also.. People hanging out with the band doing timepass.. Vote
I love this song! This song is definitely underrated and needs to be given a listen. When I tell people about this song, they don't know what it is. It's quite sad, as they are missing out on a great catchy song.
great song with good guitar riff - SoloStriker
Deserves top 10V18 Comments
Best song they ever made. Almost every song of Blood Sugar Sex Magik is fantastic, but this one is certainly the best. Especially the last chorus with the guitar
This song heals wounds no band-aid in the world could heal. It really is an amazing song, the guitar riff is full of emotion, the lyrics are amazing and the drum beat is just right. Without a doubt, the best Chili Pepper's song out there. Incredible.
Easily one of Frusciante's best solos and for that alone this needs to be way higher than it is. Very heartfelt song.
Are you serious! 1! 11! This song is godlikeV8 Comments
