2 Can't Stop

It's A GOOD SONG by the way I'm IN SCHOOL

The best. No need to say anything more.

Only because I feel like every RHCP song should be above every Foo Fighter's song

Not the best RHCP song, but still pretty damn good!

3 Under the Bridge

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

This by far is one of the chili's best songs to date. Almost Anthony's own way to saying goodbye to his past ways and beginning his new life. This song is just beautiful.

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?

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

Such a great song.
