This week Shaina and Michael join me to revisit Red Hot Chili Peppers' "Californication," a mournfully chill song about how Californian culture is copulating with the rest of the world--to mixed results.
How did Anthony Kiedis's "cleansing trip to Thailand" factor into the creation of this song? Do we have the strength of will to analyze all five verses? Can anyone but Californians enjoy this band responsibly?
Plus: a music video featuring an RHCP-themed video game that doesn't exist and shouldn't, candid moments where we admit to liking parts of this song, and as usual, utterly deranged youtube comments.
