Song of the Day: Red Hot Chili Peppers – “Scar Tissue”

Happy birthday to Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis, who turns 54 years old today. Here’s one of the bigger hits the Chili Peppers have had, although I can’t get a straight answer on what the song means. I’ve seen one interpretation say “Scar Tissue” refers to the damage Kiedis’s drug use has done to him over the years, another that says he’s calling himself not as talented as the rest of the band, and another saying it represents a change in the band’s sound from a heavier/funkier sound to something more mellow and melodic. Regardless, I like the song. The song reached No. 8 on the Billboard Hot 100 and won a Grammy for best rock song.
