Watch Red Hot Chili Peppers get their rigs out for Carpool Karaoke

It’s a simple concept, but a bloody good one. Talk show host James Corden gets musos in a car, drives them around, engages in some quality bants, and cranks their tunes on the stereo. It’s a premise that’s brought in some of the biggest acts in the world. This time around, it’s Red Hot Chili Peppers giving ‘Carpool Karoake’ a go, and the result is a cracker.

The band looks like they’re having an absolute blast, and Corden comes across as a genuine mega-fan. Some Peppers classics get a run-through, some questionable anecdotes are relayed, there’s a stop for an impromptu wrestle sesh, and shirts come off at one stage, naturally.

It comes ahead of the release of Red Hot Chili Peppers’ 11th studio LP The Getawayreleased this Friday.
