Best Red Hot Chili Peppers Songs


The Contenders: Page 4

61 Goodbye Angels

Absolute stunner and without any doubt the getaway's best song, I must say josh has done a great job, hope to see goodbye angels in at least in the top 15 sooner rather than later

Best song on The Getaway. Before hearing this song, I was really missing John Frusciante, and this track made me more content with Josh Klinghoffer.

Best song on the getaway and it has an amazing ending to it

Highlight of the getaway and that outro though!

62 Readymade

Um, okay. As far as something that kicks ass goes, this song has to be number one. This is by far the most under rated song I've ever heard! It's so amazing, especially the solo. CLEAN IT UP JOHNNY! If you don't know this song, please please please listen to it.

The guitar riff sort of reminds me of Rage Against the Machine songs, so already that makes it a good song. - MaxStickies

Just another amazing song by RHCP.

63 Behind the Sun

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.

This song is at 66? Wow this song should be in their top 3 - Sabbath

65 Right On Time

This is a great, upbeat song!

The bass line in this song is perfect - Sabbath

66 Dark Necessities

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

Very underrated song.
This song has an amazing and addictive baseline.
Just awesome

68 Fortune Faded

Amazing song! One of the best chorus of RHCP - joxoko

My favorite one! The most beautiful guitar line, this sing is the reason why they need john frusciante!

Such an under rated song. The Chorus is so catchy! Musical GENIUS!

Wonderful. Always come back to it. Video is magic

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. - KQB17

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.

So funky and groovy, plain awesome for chilling

70 Animal Bar

OMG Most underrated song EVER Animal Bar is so far my favorite RHCP song just listen to kiedis and frusciante voices at their best, and as ever that catchy bass line... May sound like a common song, but it is NOT!

71 Death of a Martian

Love all of the chilli pepper's work but I feel this song is their most unique and happens to feature some amazing vocals, needs to be in the top 20 at the least!

What! What is this song doing down here! This song must be 15 at least

This song caught my attention the moment I heard it, it has such an eerie, unique sound.

Simply the best song they made. awesome!

72 Savior

A very beautiful two faced song

Love the Christmas vibe

Such an underrated song

73 The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie
74 The Righteous & the Wicked
75 One Big Mob

People criticise this album because of Dave Navarro, but this feels like Frusciante never left and possessed Navarro so that his powerful guitar skills could boost the quality of this song heavily.

76 She's Only 18

Definitely underrated brilliant song - SoloStriker

Knock the world right off its feet and straight onto its head!

The perfect blend of funky verses and nice melodies in the chorus'

This song is sex, so amazing
