  • 00:00:00 The Red Hot Chili Peppers' 1995 album, "One Hot Minute," was met with mixed reviews from fans and critics alike. While it did sell over two million copies in the United States, it was considered a commercial disappointment by most.

It wouldn't be until January of the following year when things started to fall into place. Then the band was in the studio and things were coming to a close for the album. They had about 25 songs recorded, but "Californication" was one of them. The tomb was tracked, and it just kept nagging Kedis for him. These lyrics were what the album was all about. He felt like they were the best he'd written in a long time, and still whenever he brought up the would-be song, everyone pointed out that they had more than enough material for the record.
