Honestly, I'd never heard that song in-full before.  I have, however, heard more than I ever wanted to of an alternate version.

"Weird Al" Yankovic: Alapalooza - Bedrock Anthem


Is this Maico a 440 or only a 400?  Well in all the confusion, I forgot myself.
But considering this is a 1978 Magnum, the best-handling bike in the world, you have to ask yourself one question.
Do you feel lucky, punk?

I love the Red Hot Chilli Peppers!! Saw them live at Madison Square Garden in 1991.. Silverchair opened for them.

They are a fantastic live band with a huge amount of energy...

Since I play the bass guitar, I've been a huge fan of Flea (RHCP bass player) in the 1990's he released a "instructional" video... this is a section of it. He is being interviewed by River Pheonix. The section starting at 4:00 is really interesting, River asks him to play concepts and Flea plays them...

I saw them live in 2000 at the first Rolling Rock Town Fair here in SW PA. My opinion was just the opposite. To this day I still say they were the worst band I have ever seen/heard live and I can't listen to their music still today because how that performance influenced my opinion of them LOL.

Are you serious.  What songs did they sing.  I have watched a lot of videos of their live concerts and they looked great.

I am serious, everybody there I talked to agreed they sucked that day. Maybe they were drunk/hi or having a bad day or something. But it was bad. A local band "The Clarks" did WAY better. Luckily for the Chilli Peppers they went on after them and not before or CP's would have looked even worse LOL.

That is really odd.  Do you remember what songs they played.

I think i found a video of the concert that you went to.  If this is the right video then i dont blame you for thinking they sucked, the song itself sucks and i have actually never heard it till now.

After watching this one i think flea should stick to playing the bass and not singing.

Chili Peppers?Eeeeeuuuuuwwwww.Somewhat like the cat in heat with it's head stuck in a tin can-on coke.The video with them dancing around with nothing on but tube socks on their roots was enough for me-even if the music was good,which of course,it's not.Naturally,that's just my opinion-and therefore the correct one :D
I always thought of them as catering to the er,um, mano o mano type of crowd :-X ;)

This band is definitely one of those you either love or hate... I liked them during a certain period, mainly the Blood Sugar Sex Magic period... then I liked a few songs here and there after that.

They are a touch of side show vaudeville, goofy kid act and punk.... like I said not for everyone... the live stuff is typical of a band of their nature... it seemed fine to me, except I didn't like the first song. The song Flea sang was so tongue in check it was funny!
