Best Red Hot Chili Peppers SongsRHCP-fan37
The Top Ten
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
Just PerfectV 151 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
Awesome song with beautiful electronic guitar best song of 1999V 126 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
So chillV 134 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!

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
It is the 2nd best song everV 84 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
This song saved my life. Absolutely phenomenal.V 61 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
A very good, popular groovy hit.
The song is great and the video is even better! - thomasnirvanastroud
I love the fact that this sounds like a ROCK song, while others like Under the bridge are so soft they’re depressingV 68 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.
Amazing song! Great intro and verses and chorus!V 35 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.
The best of the bestV 46 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"
It's 10 years I'm listening to this song and the outro is still making me shiver. Everything is perfectly fitting in its spot.V 69 Comments
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
Damn underratedV 61 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!
That intro is sick with the distorted bass! - Userguy44V 25 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
Such a great song. Ever since I heard this song on Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers the Movie, I thought it was awesome
Disneyland California used this on Space Mountain at one point! - railfan99V 14 Comments
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 - 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"
So good and catchyV 36 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
Has so much more character than there other songsV 9 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).
Hypnotic songV 25 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!
My favorite red hot chilli peppers song it's so underratedV 16 Comments
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
Frusciante wrote this when he was 20 and it is one of the best guitar tracks of all time
What makes this song great is very little related to the lyrics. My favorite Zeppelin song is 'Friends' and I seem to be in the minority with this taste. When I realized that Frusciante pulled inspiration from that same song, it suddenly clicked. That's why this is one of my favorite RHCP songs.V 7 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.
bestV 29 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
Why so low?V 22 Comments
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.
Unbelieveble! Among the strongest songs ever with the best line base, I keep listening loop, maye you must rate for it
Belongs in top 10V 30 Comments
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
A great poppy song with an amazing bass lick that gets the song going. The bass and guitar solos are phenomenal as well.
Should be in the top tensV 12 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.
This song is really sorrowful.Can't help crying!V 9 Comments
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.
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.
I really love this song is beautiful and gets excited! I wish they play this song in the concert in Barcelona in December!
Just a genius song with amazing background vocals. It's so similar to californication and totally should be in the top ten. So underratedV 6 Comments
Vocals. Drums. Guitar. Bass... All perfect which means the song is prefect also...
I can play it on guitar! Awesome song! The vocals are amazing and fleas bass is as always sweet
He sings the verse softly and then belts out the chorus - GuitarZero
Top 10 easy enough saidV 7 Comments
Its got that funky bass line and that modern feel of new chili peppers. And it's beautiful. Yeah I miss John, who doesn't? But this is their best song without him since he's been gone
This song is obviously a contender for top 20 however it does lack a creative guitar solo that John used to always incorporate in their earlier songs
The bass is incredible, the lyrics are meaningful, all around great song
Never ceases to make me happy... - AnanyaV 30 Comments
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.
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!
I LOVE this song! It is EXTREMELY underrated. Deserves a place in top 10!
I LOVE this song!
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
It's surprising that this song is so far down on the list. I guess not many people have heard this song, but it is just so peaceful to hear. Plug in your headphones and take a walk in a cool breezy evening - this song will perfectly complement the setting.V 4 Comments
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 - Abhay
The best of rhcp slow cheetah xxV 10 Comments
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
This is one of my favorite songs on my favorite album
She don't like Rolling stones!V 6 Comments
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.
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.
One of my favourite. But because it's quite new it is not that high on the list. SO I will vote for this one. To give it some boost to the top
The chord progression in the chorus is like crack.V 3 Comments
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
Amazing song, should be higher in my opinion
One of the greatest, most original Chilis songs ever written. It's actually amazingly underrated. Should easily be in the Top 10.
I would say is the RHCP best song, but surely it's 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 it's 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
How can I describe this song? Well considering the tension going on, this is truly a light in a dark tunnel. This song kept their heads above water.
This song deserves to be in the top 10 is a masterpiece, everything is perfect.
This song is really beautiful, gives me chills every time I listen to it.V 10 Comments
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
Just listen it. this one deserve top 5!V 4 Comments
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.
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
Their best song. It epitomizes all the things they did well, particularly the combination of Funk, Melody, Beauty, and Dynamics. This song has everything you could ask from the Peppers and more.
Song just kicks assV 18 Comments
Great catchy lyrics. Perfect rhymes. And a chorus that makes you just want to jump up and start clapping your hands. Best song on I'm with you by far.
Great Song This One Should Be Higher Up The List Please Vote This Song Up - mneilan
Really catchy song. Makes you want to get up and dance. Should be higher up the list. Best song on the I'm With You Album.
Damn that guitar manV 6 Comments
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
Wow such a subtle tune yet so powerful. Feel a bit silly to admit it almost brings me to tears occasionally. It may sound cheesy but to truly let someone inside your heart you also learn to accept and love yourself in the process. It's a beautiful concept looking at it from that perspective and this song really makes me longing to fall in love.
Without a doubt the most lovely song they've ever created! Really deserves to be #1 in my opinion but come on at least top 5! Such beautiful lyrics and think of how far they've come along and to make something as beautiful as this. And it's a wedding proposal! Very underrated.
John Frusciante is so bloody good in this, although he's good in everythingV 18 Comments
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 - burnleyman
Why can't this be #2? I understand it being behind Under The Bridge, but seriously? #38? It's an underrated song on an underrated album.
This song could easily be top 5. Never get sick of itV 6 Comments
This song keep playing on my mind! Really awesome song with amazing guitar riff and vocal with beats from a great drummer!
Chorus is amazing... Such an underrated song, lyrics are great. Guitar riff is really good as well.
Chorus is just awesome... grt song...
An underrated song, must be on at least top 25 - sumedh
MasterpieceV 4 Comments
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.
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.
Probaly one of the most underrated RHCP song love the chorus should be higher than 44
Ohh come on 47? Really? Whos voting here? Dumbers?
Think the Chili's version is better than the original...
Really surprised it's not much higher in this list. It's a awesome song and upbeat.. My favourite RHCP Song. - brad76
This is the only RHCP song I like and it's a cover song - christangrant
THIS SONG HAS SUCH AN AMAZINGLY CATCHY BEAT DANG ALTHOUGH IT MIGHT NOT COMPETE WITH TODAYS MUSIC THE BEAT IS UNDESCRIBABLE~! YES IT GIVES ME A FUNNY FEELING IN MY TUMMY!
First rhcp song I ever listened to. This got me into the band. Such a moving song and very powerful. Still one of my favorites today
Why 59? Top 20 immediately
Wow I knew this was an underrated song but not even in the top 25! This is possibly one of my favorite songs by the chili peppers I wish that it had at least a little appreciation! At least try and listen to it and see what the song has to offer trust me you will like it.
Beautiful... This is the only word needed to describe this song... Definitely deserves to be rated higher than this... What a shame.
an underated gem from dave navarro's era. it begins with a slow moaning start but then explodes with awesome guitar skill but then slows down at the end finishing beutifully - burnleyman
Never forget that the best RHCP record is still One hot minute with one of the best guitarist ever, far above Frusciante... The post 90s era is for the easy fm listeners...
Dave's presence in the band was incredible and the discreet plea for help in this song deeply touches my soul.
One hot minute is the most underrated album of all of the red hot chili peppersV 1 Comment
This song really shows RHCP at their musical peak. The way they change the tempo is kick ass and the drums are so cleverly and crisply recorded. The chorus has a strong emotional feel to it, almost nostalgic, yet empowering. The general harmony in the song is spot on. Totally one of my favorites
Definitely one of RHCP's most underrated songs, should be in the top 5. The chorus is absolutely amazing.
This is one of the most catchy RHCP chorusses. It's a bummer that this album is so underrated, this song deserved a top 10 spot!
This song should be n top 20
Are you kidding me?! #48? this song deserves top 10. The guitar is superb, the drums are excellent, john's harmonies are godly, Anthony's lyrics are mesmerizing, and flea is the glue that holds everything in place.
Its just a minor thing, and I'm a minor king... -
The Outro at the end changes the direction of the song, giving a tone of contemplating. Very good.
Best rhcp song ever.it rocks from begin til end.but hey its just a minor thingV 1 Comment
That guitar and lyrics are the sex. There are no saints in this land. There are monks in my band.
Amazingly funky song one the best on blood sugar sex magik
How the hell is Snow the number one song?
That bass line thoughhhV 1 Comment
This is the most underrated Rhcp song... Deserves to be in the top 10... Just that this song doesn't have a good history to be famous. A true listener will get goosebumps in the magical chorus. Josh has really nailed it with the intro and those faint fills in the chorus.
Great song amazing rhythm, makes me so happy when listening
Best bass rif ever. Magic Flea.
THE GREATEST SONG OF THE PEPPERS
The early Chilis are better than the current Chilis, not the same without Hillel rip
