  Californication (song) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It was released in 2000, the song reached #61 in the Billboard Hot 100 in the USA, and #16 in the UK charts, though it remains as one of Red Hot Chili Pepper's best known songs, and is played at nearly every concert since its release.
Another theme that the band explores in the song is their own version of the meaning of the word "Californication." The chorus "Dream of Californication" is probably satirical, referencing musicians like KISS and Mötley Crüe, who use their fame to have sex with female fans.
Californication is a unique video in that it takes the form of a video game from the point of view of the player.

Californication has some great music on it, but it`s only a good album.
It could`ve been a song or two shorter, but it`s still one of the better releases so far this year.
This is a band that has nearly fallen apart in the last few years due to drugs, motorcycle accidents, and anything else that you can think of.

Californication is the result of a band communicating with each other on a higher musical plane.
This Velvet Glove - A Deep song, but i still love it, its got that soft touch, but then the chorus erupts into a harder song and then smooths out, the harmonies by john are the perfect compliment to his acoustic in the backround and his electric upfornt.
Road Trippin' - A Very soft song that is a good outro to the album, the acoustic guitar is flawless and the bass is alswell, the harmonies are also beutiful, the violin or whatevers in the backround is beutiful, and just a treat for the ears.

 Red Hot Chili Peppers - Californication Review - sputnikmusic
Although previous albums had more of a funk feel, Californication cements their move into the Alt Rock genre with songs like Scar Tissue, allowing Kiedis to show a level of maturity that some thought was less present in previous albums.
Songs like “Around the World", with its distorted bass intro and funky bassline and “Otherside" with it’s relatively simply yet effective bassline could be said to be the epitome of the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ music.
Californication was alright, but there were too many weak songs on the album - Porcelain and Road Trippin are two horrible tracks that come to mind.

Californication was something of a rebirth for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and with it they started to move in a somewhat different musical direction from their previous funk work.
Of course after a while the song breaks back down into the furious fashion in which it started, and eventually the guitar comes more into prominence, playing a cool chord progression over the top to close the song out.
The title of the song is repeated throughout the song.

Kiedis wrote the song while the band was on tour, with lyrics referring to the band's experiences.
Originally, the music for this song was going to be mixed with the vocals of "Road Trippin'," which is the last song on Californication.

 Bandlink Music Forums - Debate!
Californication, while being the true Chili Peppers theme song for some of the newer fans holds nothing to Under The Bridge.
It's not the deciding factor of whether I like/dislike it, Californication is not one of my favourites and I feel like it drags on too long.
I almost always change the song after about a minute in, where as with Under The Bridge, I listen to the whole thing, mainly for the fantastic ending.

This Song was the First hit off the album and is now one of the most classic and well known Red Hot Chili Pepper songs.
The song is dark and depressing and shows us how ***ed up the world we live in is. This is one of the biggest hits off this album and probably one of their biggest hits.
The song is another flashback to BSSM days the guitar comes through as exciting and really gives you a great feel to the song.

 Review of the Red Hot Chili Peppers' 'Californication'
Californication (1999) is the seventh album from the famous Red Hot Chili Peppers and the follow up to the slightly disappointing One Hot Minute.
For those that are familiar with the band's sound, this is more of the same- the distinctively whiny vocals of Anthony Kiedis, supported by Flea (bass), Chad Smith (drums) and, yet again, the excellent John Frusciante (guitar).
A song like 'Otherside' is not just a great Chili Peppers' song- it is also a great musical moment where all the pieces somehow come together perfectly to form a captivating piece of art.

 Californication by Red Hot Chili Peppers CD
The Chili Peppers fill CALIFORNICATION with material shaped by personal and professional turmoil, resulting in a somewhat more sensitive approach than one might expected from a band whose hard-core following are skate-punks and drunken frat-boys.
Songs such as "Otherside," "Scar Tissue" and "This Velvet Glove" overflow with background harmonies, while Frusciante's unadorned guitar provides support for Anthony Kiedis' emotive singing and broken-hearted lyrics.
The title track is one of the most impressive songs this quartet has written--It tells a tale of wandering souls who've lost their way searching for the American Dream in California.

Their album Californication was a great one and they related their new one back to it with a few lyrics.

Music is their lives and you can definitely tell on the songs they put out - the sheer funk, the brash and out-there vocals and the odd lyrics make them stand out from the crowd.
The first of the new songs is the beautiful "Fortune Faded" which sounds a bit like it should have been on the By The Way album.
This is followed by "Save The Population," the latest song from the band which isn't as good as its predecessor, but still worthy on a compilation by perhaps the most consistent rock band of the past 20 years.

It's a welcome reunion: Frusciante's playing, in particular--tight, yet lyrical--fits these songs like a second skin, lending them a sensual sort of ease that is perfectly in keeping with the reckless hedonism of their lyrics.
The songs themselves are much the same mixture of adrenalised swagger and high-tensile funk as ever.
Although their earlier stuff from Mothers Milk and BSSM are excellent, Californication just brings something totally new to the table.

 Californication - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Californication is a portmanteau of California and fornication, seen on bumper stickers in the state of Oregon during the late 1970s and early 1980s.
The stickers said "Don't Californicate Oregon" in reference to the ongoing influx of Californians into Oregon.
This shift was brought about largely by the completion of CaliforniaInterstate 5 in 1964.

 Am I Right - Song Parodies, Return Communication(For KYLIEZ)
I normally would not ask this because I know the rules, but since I wrote this especially for a young girl that seemed troubled I would appreciate it if you could pull that version and post this one instead.
The girl had posted a parody of the same original song called "Communication" that really did sound troubled and when I read it I really thought she might BE in serious trouble.
The whole sequence of events was very odd...when I woke up that morning, for some reason I put that VERY song track on and played it maybe 5 or 6 times before I logged on - I usually don't listen to the Chili Peppers 1st thing in the morning.

Many figured that the Red Hot Chili Peppers' days as undisputed alternative kings were numbered after their lackluster 1995 release One Hot Minute, but like the great phoenix rising from the ashes, this legendary and influential outfit returned back to greatness with 1999's Californication.
An obvious reason for their rebirth is the reappearance of guitarist John Frusciante (replacing Dave Navarro), who left the Peppers in 1992 and disappeared into a haze of hard drugs before cleaning up and returning to the fold in 1998.
With the instrumentalists' interplay at an all-time telepathic high and Kiedis peaking as a vocalist, Californication is a bona fide Chili Peppers classic.

Der bis dato ruhigste Song „Porcelain" ist dem einen oder anderen vielleicht schon etwas zu ruhig und braucht zugegebenermaßen auch etwas Zeit.
Der einzigartige rohe Peppers-Sound bietet auf "Californication" somit eine enorme Vielfalt an Melodien und Songs mit Charakter an.

Either way, I think sometimes people vote a 1 or 10 rating in order to bring the song to a rating they think is right instead of just voting for what they actually think the song deserves.
It doesn't make any sense to rate a song highest or lowest "just" to change the average if it is rated by more than 100 people or so.
I'm compelled, in the midst of this sequence of Southern California themed songs, to point out, as a native of Northern California, that there is a significant cultural difference between Northern and Southern California.

There are a number of great songs here especially the more mellowed out ones like Scar Tissue, Otherside (my favorite) and the title track.
These songs speak to a listener on so many different levels it's crazy...sort of genius.
