Wocka Gabba Doo! Red Hot Chili Peppers' Top Five Completely Ridiculous Lyrics

Remember when the Red Hot Chili Peppers would run around with socks precariously covering their penises? That signature on-stage antic resonated so much with the alternative rock audience -- and eventually wider popular culture -- because it was the closest the Peps had ever come to expressing their true essence.

Though lead singer Anthony Kiedis went through a newly mature phase at the tail end of the '90s, his lyrical subject matter has always been mostly concerned with bumping and grinding, among other kinds of bare-skinned physical contact between horny human beings.

And when Kiedis isn't frothing at the, uh, mouth like a torturously riled-up frat boy? Well, he freely improvises a brand-new language that only he understands.

After the jump, check out the Red Hot Chili Peppers' top five completely ridiculous lyrics.
