"Californication" is the Red Hot Chili Peppers' fourth single and sixth track from their 1999 seventh studio album, Californication. Released in 2000, the song reached #69 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the USA, and #16 on the UK charts, and hit #1 on both US Mainstream Rock Tracks for 2 weeks and US Modern Rock Tracks for 1 week. It is notable for being the only song by the band to stay longer on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart than on the Modern Rock Tracks chart when a song from the band hit #1 on both charts. It is notable for its sparse combination of guitar and bass notes in the main riff; guitarist John Frusciante drew inspiration from The Cure song "Carnage Visors".
