Rock Candy

Red Hot Chili Peppers have sold over 80 million albums worldwide, but out of their 11 studio releases, their biggest success came from 1999’s Californication.

Selling over six million copies in the United States alone, Californication marked the triumphant return of guitarist John Frusciante after leaving the band in 1992 and yielded some of the most beloved songs in the RHCP cannon and some of their best music videos. (The video for the title track alone is simply incredible.)

But what is the album’s best track?

With 15 tracks, you certainly have a lot of material to choose from, but in honor of the 18th anniversary of Californication, we’d like to know which track you think is best.  Vote in the poll below and feel free to detail your choice in the comments.
