Greatest Red Hot Chili Peppers Songs Live


The Top Ten

1 Californication

The jam at the beginning when they played at slane castle is the best thing I have ever had th pleasure to hear
Also, john's live solos are way better than the studio ones

This is music at it's purest, words cannot describe how perfect the intro is! Saw them live in Ireland, equally amazing! ❤

2 Can't Stop

Hearing this live was one of the greatest moments of my life. The intro was insane and the excitement and energy just built up like crazy. I saw them during the I'm With You Tour and Josh did just as good of a job as John and his backing vocals were absolutely beautiful.

You just need to hear/see this song Live in Slane Castle to prove it is their best live song. Also when Flea sings some parts, it is a perfect combination, and John's solos are just awesome! Anthony modulating his voice at the middle of the song and Chad at its maximum. It should be Nº 1, not 5º like it is now... - Itzi04

6 Don't Forget Me

Don't forget me is one of those songs were you don't know what to expect live. but the air is always filled with excitement as the song goes on

Its between this and californication, but I decided on don't forget me because of the beauty of it when played live. Especially the live version at La Cigale where John goes crazy, it is just perfection, but as I said - californication is a close second

I mean, COME ON. Who can listen to this song and not like it?

Best song ever live, the way john makes his guitar talk

Give It Away was intended to be a party song, and the live performance of this song fills the audience with such energy, that the original aim of making this song is fulfilled.

Best song live ever (with frunciante)
