And though this is far and away their biggest song, I have always hated it (and that album) deeply. If you change a couple of things, it’s functionally no different from a metal power ballad.

And I suppose you could say the same thing about Down in a Hole (Alice) or Black Hope Sun (Soundgarden), but this one is so cloying to me.

They had some hits beyond this though. I love Californication despite the stupid title, and My Friends is basically Under the Bridge part two but a much better song


“Don’t overplay. Don’t overplay. Less is more. It will always be: less is more. Nobody is ever going to remember all those fancy solos - even the guys that play them, most of them won’t remember - so play some licks that people can walk away humming, that people can identify with." --Steve Cropper
