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.
How is storm in a teacup not even a contender?! It should be way higher than wet sand and soul to squeeze
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.More comments about Suck My KissListen to sample
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.Listen to sample
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
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 should be so much higher in the list. One of the most beautiful songs made by RHCP of all time.More comments about I Could Have LiedListen to sample
One of the greatest melodic rock song I've ever heard.. hats off to rhcp for dis one
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.More comments about Slow CheetahListen to sample
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

Just watch the live in Slane version of this, changed my view on john Frusciante's guitar playing... Truly amazing!
Simpply addictive... Watch the Slane Castle live version! Amazing!
This is undoubtedly the greatest rhcp song for two reasons. The meaning and frusciantes guitar playing. It is mind blowing. Yet after reading scar tissue and knowing what it means, it's very sad to listen to.. JGMore comments about Venice QueenListen to sample
I guess Some day It'll be higher on this list...
The song has something in it... The video is also awesome...
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.
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.More comments about Monarchy of RosesListen to sample
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!
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.Listen to sample
Amazing song! One of the best chorus of RHCP
Such an under rated song. The Chorus is so catchy! Musical GENIUS!
my favorite one! the most beautiful guitar line, this sing is the reason why they need john frusciante!More comments about Fortune FadedListen to sample
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
burnleymanListen to sample
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
One of the greatest, most original Chilis songs ever written. It's actually amazingly underrated. Should easily be in the Top 10.Listen to sample

This one has the better bass riff's I ever heard
Deserves at least be in top 20 UP FOR FACTORY OF FAITH =]
The best song from the new album! Amazing bass-line by flea, silent by awesome guitar riffs by josh, truly a top 10 number from RHCP!
This song is one of the best! Not so well known, so thumbs up so it becomes top 20 at LEAST!Listen to sample
Beautiful... This is the only word needed to describe this song... Definitely deserves to be rated higher than this... What a shame.
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.Listen to sample

I wish they would make more songs with distorted guitar like this one. This was their first true hit.Listen to sample
1 of the best songs from stadium arcadium
This Song's very underrated. It should be up in top 20 or at least 30! just listen to the chorus and guitar solo and the intro!Listen to sample
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.
Why is rain dance maggie up there? This should be in the top 10!
This song is one of the sickest straight up rock song EVERRERERER!
Only in 60th place? Wow! Just give this song a listen "Clean it up Johnny"More comments about ReadymadeListen to sample
What on earth is this doing down here! This is one of the chili peppers best and most well known songs, I remember me and my friend running around the place drunk singing this. Deserves to me much hihger.
JESUS CHRIST THIS SONG IS ONE OF THE REASONS OF WHY I LOVE RHCP! Everything is awesome and funky! Definitely brought out the band's style! Man, I gotta love my classmates for showing to me this song. All hail RHCP! :DListen to sample
Chorus is amazing... Such an underrated song, lyrics are great. Guitar riff is really good as well.
This song keep playing on my mind! Really awesome song with amazing guitar riff and vocal with beats from a great drummer!

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 todayListen to sample
Best B-side the Chili Peppers have made. The lyrics are amazing and the simplicity of the guitar part really embodies Frusciante's great style.
Well, starting at the bottom of the list one of their B sides from Californication. If you haven't heard it do so cause it's their best B side and really should have beat out almost any song on the album.Listen to sample
all with this song is good but really ,the bass cover is sick

"I used to shout across the room to you, and you come dancin like a fool... " I love it! I especially love the bass solo -- gives me chills.
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.
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.Listen to sample
It is definitely the best song in one hot minute and it is a lot heavier then most of their stuff which I really lile and this song shows how good flea is.Listen to sample
This song is sweet! It even has a trumpet solo. This shows the flexibility of the world's greatest band. The backing vocals on this song are great!Listen to sample
great bass line, great guitar, great drum lines that uses the less used drums tom-toms for the

Seriously?! No one heard this song? The amazing vocals, backingvocals and that perfect ending?! Its not their best, but not the 89!
This has to be a RHCP cult classic. Some amazing backing vocals from John Frusciante, really makes the hairs stand up on the back of your neck!Listen to sample
Good song. B-side of dani california
