Song number four on Hendu’s Red Hot Chili Peppers countdown to the concert in New Jersey:  Road Trippin :

This song off of Californication, IMO their 2nd greatest album and the one that marked their 2nd comeback.  Seriously, this band has more lives than a cat.  Just when they are written off and at their darkest moment, pure genius arises from the ashes.  Hmmmm, maybe they’re more like the Phoenix.  Or they’re like a crazy hybrid cat/phoenix being-esque that plays kick ass R-n-R.  Yeah, that sounds about right.

Anyway, I think this song encapsulates what this band went through to get to this album.  It shows the growth of Anthony as a singer as well as Flea and John at their artistic best.  It showed that they are much more than crazy-ass rockstars running around with socks on their junk.

Of all the great songs on Californication, this is by far by favorite.  I hope you enjoyed it.
