“Under the Bridge” is a song by American rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers. It is the eleventh track on the group's fifth studio album, Blood Sugar Sex Magik, and was released as its second single on March 10, 1992. Vocalist Anthony Kiedis wrote the lyrics to express feelings of loneliness and despondency, and to reflect on narcotics and their impact on his life. Kiedis was driving home from rehearsals when “Blood Sugar Sex Magik” was in pre-production and said he sang the lyrics to himself. Kiedis initially did not feel that “Under the Bridge” would fit into the Chili Peppers' repertoire, and was reluctant to show it to his bandmates until producer Rick Rubin implored him to do so. The rest of the band was receptive to the lyrics and wrote the music. The song became a critical and commercial success, peaking at number two on the Billboard Hot 100, behind “Jump” by Kris Kross and later receiving a platinum certification by the Recording Industry Association of America. The single's success was widened with the release of its accompanying video, which was frequently played on music television channels. It won the “Viewer's Choice Award” and “Breakthrough Video” at the 1992 MTV Video Music Awards. “Under the Bridge” helped the Red Hot Chili Peppers enter the mainstream. David Fricke of Rolling Stone said that the song “unexpectedly drop-kicked the band into the Top 10”, while Philip Booth of The Tampa Tribune commented that it was a “pretty, undulating, [and] by-now omnipresent single.” Its success led in part to the departure of guitarist John Frusciante, who preferred the band to remain underground. The song has become an inspiration to other artists, and remains a seminal component of the alternative rock movement of the early and mid-1990s.
