121 Detroit
122 Magic Johnson
123 Love Trilogy

Underrated fleas bass playing is amazing listen to it -

For me this song really defines who the Peppers (especially Anthony) were back in the 80's. Love it!

124 Jungle Man

Freaky Styley? Love this album, Folks just does'nt understand how awessome the good old "Freaky styley" album is for REAL - Trampampulis

125 American Ghost Dance
126 Warlocks

Underrated with a fantastic bassline

127 Stone Cold Bush

Greatest bass and guitar breakdown

128 Apache Rose Peacock

Amazing song and it has a meters reference "rocking to the beat of the funky ass meters" not to mention an amazing trumpet solo in the background.

129 Taste the Pain

Best song off Mother's Milk. Probably the most underrated song and album of all time! Sooo funky!

130 Show Me Your Soul

How is this not number one? Better than Under the Bridge.

Incredible track. Mind blowing funk.

This song is THE BEST rhcp song. Sick bass, funky riffs, badass vocals, good beat, it has everything.

Killer song. Flea is a beast.

131 Castles Made of Sand
132 Police Helicopter

A song fully packed into 1:12. Energetic bass (How do you play bass like that), Rowdy vocals (Who cares if Anthony can't sing yet) And amazing guitar and drums. Makes you want to MOSH and STAGE DIVE police helicopter is AMAZING.

Truly the highlight of their debut album. Sure, Anthony Keidis sounds like dying roadkill, but for christ's sake, he was a teen back when this was made! Don't be SO harsh on his debut album.

133 Nothing to Lose

B side off the Can't Stop Single. The 13 minute live mastermind of a jam. John and Flea play off each other so well and Anthony's free style lyrics are amazing... Chad holds down a mean beat too

134 Baby Appeal
135 C'mon Girl
136 The Hunter
137 This 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.

When I saw this song as number 72 on the list I literally just laughed out loud. So much better than that, would be in my top 15 for sure.

Incredible song! Although it is only a B-Side it is definitely one of RHCP's best work! More people should know it and listen to it!

This is a fairly unknown B-side song but its without doubt one of the RHCP's greatest! I want everyone to listen to this because it is really worth it!
