Red Hot Chili Peppers
The Chili Peppers need no introduction. They may be elder statesmen of the rock world, but on 2002's "By The Way" they showed that they are still very much one of the best acts in the world today. "Dani California" is from their highly anticipated double album "Stadium Arcadium".
Written about a character that featured in previous single "By The Way", "Dani California" is all that is good about RHCP. The verses strut with funky confidence (and also resemble Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Sweet Home Alabama"), while the chorus bursts with fantastic energy. The outro sees John Frusciante take control, with a brilliant guitar solo that ends the song in deserving fashion, and signals a very welcome return from the quartet.
