The Top Ten

1
Under the Bridge
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

2Snow (Hey Oh)
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

3Californication
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

4Otherside
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!

5Can't Stop
Epic vocals.. Electrifying guitar and bass.. Guaranteed to get your spirits up after every listen..
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
the guitar solo at the start is just incredible.... so refreshing

6Dani California
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
A very good, popular groovy hit.
The song is great and the video is even better!

8By the Way
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.

9Wet Sand
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.
Always going to remain as my favorite number along with "venice queen", "Don't forget me" and definitely "stadium arcadium"
Fruciante's genius, words cannot describe the emotion he must have out into that beautiful heart touching solo

10Give It Away
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.

The Contenders

11Soul to Squeeze
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

12The Zephyr Song
The most underrated Chili Peppers song ever, This song really puts me in the best mood ever, I Could go on about this song forever, this song really just Explains why I love This band, its an amazing song and The lyrics are probably my favourite of any chilli peppers song, It has a tune which sticks in my head for days, and even after not listening to this for 4 years I Come back to it and all of a sudden I'm singing along, It Is really one of there best, And I wish more people could see this.
Amazing Should Higher Like Number 10 Really Good Song Love It

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"

13Don't Forget Me
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...
Amazing song really. I like especially the Slane Castle version.

14The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie
HEY NOW WE GOTTA MAKE IT RAIN SOMEHOW!
What a name for a song rain dance maggie who would think of a name like that. I like snow too but this is third best. Dani California second
I think that this is the best song from Red hot chili peppers. It has a super bass and the music video is great I think it should be the number one. The song is kind of going back to their old style because it has some funk to it, which is good.

This song used to be my caller tune, and all my friends just LOVED the song! This is the best chili pepper song EVER written! I'm a great fan of theirs! Well, josh klinghoffer isn't as good as frusciate, but he is an EXCELLENT replacement! Love you RHCP!

15Suck My Kiss
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.
How is storm in a teacup not even a contender?! It should be way higher than wet sand and soul to squeeze
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.

16Around the World
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!

17Dosed
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.

18Tell Me Baby
Guys.
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
How is this not in the top 10?!
Everything about this song is just awesome.
The chorus is the most brilliant combination of instruments and vocals I have ever heard.
The bass during the chorus is my favorite bassline of Flea's, and the wahwah guitar that comes in during the second half of the chorus is just purely epic. Fruciante's backing vocals are beautiful and Chad drives the song with a great beat. This song is a great mix of the older, funky Chili Peppers (verse) and the newer, melodic Chili Peppers (chorus) and the song is just overall a fun song. As Flea put it, this is their 'most partiest' song they've ever done.
Unbelieveble- the emotion behind the chorus is just unbeatable by any other song by this or any other band. The verses flow inextorably into one another- and there's more than a hint of RHCP's trademark innuendos. My personal faveourite, should be top 5 minimum!

19Venice Queen
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!

20Desecration Smile
That's the best song of RHCP, only "snow" can be before "Desecration smile", but anyway, desecration smile may be in the top.
Its funny how nobody ever talks about this one. I can't stop listening to it - its got such a beautiful chorus and great, soothing musicianship. How is this not everyone's favorite, or at least one of them?
ITs just so peaceful to the ear. The harmony bring me to a better time in life. I listened to most they songs, but I like this a lot

21Higher Ground
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.
Epic song! One of the best songs ever to dance to.
The beat is beast
Listen to sample

22I Could Have Lied
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.

23Parallel Universe
Vocals. Drums. Guitar. Bass... All perfect which means the song is prefect also...

Amazing song to relax to no matter mood you are in it always makes you feel better best song to also get high to.
Best song to sing to while you are driving down the road! It reminds me of little vacations that I took when I was in high school with my too best buddies!
I cannot believe this one is rated so low. this is my favorite song. I think not many people who voted in this list ever heard this. please listen to this, then you may realize how great this song.

26She Looks to Me
One of the best, amazing melody and lyrics. Its just so calm and soothing. Should be at least in the top 10 :/
Beautiful song. One of the better songs of stadium arcadium
The great song from them
Listen to sample

27This Is the Place
Should definitely be higher. This Is The Place, lyrically, is probably one of the best Red Hot Chili Peppers songs ever. Has an amazing tune with a fantastic baseline and is unbelievably easy to listen to over and over again. Easily top 10 material
One of the greatest, most original Chilis songs ever written. It's actually amazingly underrated. Should easily be in the Top 10.
Listen to sample

28Stadium Arcadium
Am really sad to see the list here. What on earth stadium arcadium doing at no.31? And the saddest part is its far behind the adventures of rain dance maggie.
I really love this song is beautiful and gets excited! I wish they play this song in the concert in Barcelona in December!
Very good and underrated song. Should be in at least top 10. Great music and very pleasing. I recommend this 2 everyone 2 listen it at least once.

29Breaking the Girl
Very Under-rated. One of their best songs easily. Looking for a RHCP song to do in our band, and this is a serious contender.
a slow melodic song about anthony's girlfriend. this was one of the bands first proper slow songs and it works very well

burnleyman

Not only one of the best RHCP songs, one of the best rock songs. Period.

30Aeroplane
I don't know why but every time I listen to this song.. , I get nostalgic about my childhood..! very melodic n awesome n one of my favorite after under the bridge, give it a way and around the world.. flea is super insane son of a bitch.. anyway r. h. c. p are godfather of alternative!
another amazing navarro song that needs more attention is aeroplane, a song about how music helps anthony forget about drugs. amazing vocals by anthony and

burnleyman

BASS LINE. That's all that needs to be said about this song.

31Hey

How isn't this up there at the top, the bass in this alone is so jazzy and the guitar solo is beautiful. Great combination!

The band taps into an extraordinary/beautiful groove here. One of Flea's personal favorite basslines, topped off by a cool/jazzy drum beat and incredible lyrics/vocals. But John's guitar (in the verses and solo bits) alone should earn this one a spot in the top 10. In the likely case you haven't heard it, change that.

33Slow Cheetah
Clearly all you chili pepper fans aren't fans (or haven't listened to this song enough)... If you took the time to figure out the lyrics to this masterpiece you'd spend the rest of your living days... It's a brilliant piece of work! Most of the top 10 listed here are the top pop 10... Not the peppers' 10 best songs...
You haven't heard true beauty until you have heard this song; every time I listen to this song, no matter how sad I am it always stirs emotions deep within me. That acoustic guitar riff is hauntingly beautiful and the ending is just insane; so different from anything I've ever heard but still beautiful.
One of the greatest melodic rock song I've ever heard.. hats off to rhcp for dis one

34Easily
The jam session at the end is by far one of their greatest guitar/bass combo's I have ever heard and in my opinion is some of the best work they have ever compiled together. Song never gets old.
This song starts off like a heavy metal song, but when the chorus kicks in, it turns into something completely different. The song is amazing, I don't know why it's not even in the top 20 for crying out loud.

35Hard to Concentrate
This song is so underrated! I think it's one of the most beautiful love songs ever made, makes me smile when I hear it, and believe that I'll also find someone who will inspire me to write something like this :D love rhcp, they make such beautiful music
The vocals are superb, the emotion is so heartfelt. It is one of the most beautiful love songs ever! Extremely Underrated
Come on people! This song is beautiful, every time I listen to Stadium Arcadium I skip back and listen to this track about four times over, it's just so bloody brilliant!

36Sir Psycho Sexy
How was this not added yet? This may be the most B. A funk-rock song of all time! The lyrics and bass line make me wanna go nuts! Give this one a listen

Lukas327

Just the most suggestive song of all time, and makes you feel like a badass player, and is definitely one of their best along with Under The Bridge, Otherside, Dani California and Venice Queen.

Not to mention they were funk around this time and sounded so sexy.
I gut stop by lady cup in my automobile she says get out and spread your legs and then she tried to cope a feel.
The rest expresses the lifestyle of those true rock idols which really lives or lived over sex drugs funk and rock and roll' amazing outro too.

37Shallow Be Thy Game
The greatest song by the RHCP. Navarro's style mixed with the rest of the band's style created an unique interesting song. One Hot Minute is their most interesting offer, where experimentalism, technique, "funkyness", and "heavyness" were mixed in the proper proportion. From this disc on the RHCP went downhil into "poppyness". It's such a shame this disc is so underrated!
Purely the most amazing, motivating, and catchy song ever written by the rhcp.
If you've never heard of this song, please listen to it

39Universally Speaking
One of the most underrated of RHCP, this song really makes me happy, with an awesome feel good tune, and a meaning that wont depress its one of my favourite RHCP songs, I remember buying By The Way thinking that this should be more recognized, And I don't find many lists with this being in the top 10, so I thought Hey, I like this song, This is definitely going into my top 10.
instrument playing that makes you say "ahhh how cute" and lyrics about making love make this a great love song

Should be closer to the top ten.

40My Friends
I would say is the RHCP best song, but surely its a top 10 song, best song on One Hot Minute! Under the Bridge is rightly fully number 1 so I've voted for this instead it should be much higher up the list. Maybe fans forget about this because its a Navarro song, don't get me wrong Frusciante is way better, but Navarro did manage to contribute to some good songs, this being his best RHCP song
Ohh no! I canĀ't belive it! This should be in RHCP'S TOP TEN. Is some old but is so good. When we wanna talk about RHCP's ihstory, "my friends" must to be mentioned! Is a great song! LISTEN IT ONE TIME AND YOU WILL SEE!
This is a fantastic song. An RHCP classic!
It's a shame to see that only the most recent albums get recognition on this list, because in my opinion, their best music came from their earlier period.
This deserves to be right beside Under the Bridge!

41Monarchy of Roses
One of the best/catchiest/most addicting choruses they've written. It sounds even better because it contrasts so strongly wih the dissonant verse. The solo is electrifying. Such a fun song with so much energy.
Great song... The best part of the song is the change in pitch of vocals.. And listen clearly to the guitar riff... Its melodious. The next 50% of song has cherubic tune.
Nice song...
I guess Some day It'll be higher on this list...
The song has something in it... The video is also awesome...

42This Velvet Glove
its hard to forget this song even though it never came out as a single on a 7 singles album.
This song pulls you out of reality and sucks you into it's gravitation. This is one of those songs where, as a musician, there are no unused parts in this song, every moment is taken advantage of. The vocals are beautiful, the words true, and johns part could not be any better.
By and large, this song is one of their most coherent and concise pieces. The musical thoughts are very well thought out and are properly executed. The melancholy atmosphere is built to the fullest.

The best song from the new album! Amazing bass-line by flea, silent by awesome guitar riffs by josh, truly a top 10 number from RHCP!

I wish they would make more songs with distorted guitar like this one. This was their first true hit.

In my opinion best song they've written. Really mellow and makes you appreciate life and always puts me in a good mood. Absolutely love this song!

While some of the verses seem a bit overly poppy in my opinion, that ending guitar part is in fact amazing.
The guitar in this is so catchy even if the start is a bit dull, I guarantee you will be playing your air guitar at the end of this song.

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
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.

Think the Chili's version is better than the original...

65Quixoticelixer

Best B-side the Chili Peppers have made. The lyrics are amazing and the simplicity of the guitar part really embodies Frusciante's great style.

Well, starting at the bottom of the list one of their B sides from Californication. If you haven't heard it do so cause it's their best B side and really should have beat out almost any song on the album.

68Walkabout
This is what I consider perfection musically speaking. The bassline and the guitar are so simple and yet blend with each other as if they had known each other for years. An egg frog along the whole song keeps the rhythm, and Kiedis vocals are insanely relaxing and sexy at the same time. The chorus is so effective and makes the transition from verse to verse wich just keeps coming back because of how perfect it is. In my humble opinion it's the most funky song ever written by any human being on Earth. Thanks rhcp.
amazingly underrated song :/
cos I guess this song is what rhcp are all about.. so funky and relaxed.
and what an insanely cool bass! this is definitely one of the best imo.

Definitely one of john's best guitar solo's it really blows your mind!
The fact that this is down so low here makes me want to scroll to the bottom of every artist's page to find the gems
The guitar main riff will blow your mind

80Make You Feel Better
Great text, great Chad smith, great backing vocals by our John Frusciante!
It really makes you feel better!
Should be way up. A good song in which they tried something different from punk rock
This song is wayy underrated on this list. For some reason this song just makes me feel better. Its so upbeat and just a fun song to listen to in general.

John's background vocals make the song. These are also easily some of Anthony's best lyrics.

JESUS CHRIST THIS SONG IS ONE OF THE REASONS OF WHY I LOVE RHCP! Everything is awesome and funky! Definitely brought out the band's style! Man, I gotta love my classmates for showing to me this song. All hail RHCP! :D
What on earth is this doing down here! This is one of the chili peppers best and most well known songs, I remember me and my friend running around the place drunk singing this. Deserves to me much hihger.
