People are noticing some creepy similarities between the lyrics of the Red Hot Chili Peppers (RHCP) song Californication and the events of 2020.
Who could have predicted the insanity that is 2020? Well, a lot of things actually. There’s a plethora of books and televisions shows that show… and now songs… that just scream 2020! Listen to the lyrics to “Californication” by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Isn’t it creepy?
People have had enough of 2020; the nasty bug, the lockdown, the rioting and looting — oh — don’t even get us started on the wildfires. Enough is enough. It’s like we’re living in a terrible TV series that has a crappy cliffhanger every week. We’re over it already.
Many of us, me included, are done with 2020 and are trying to salvage our sanity by making jokes and looking at the bright side of things (if there is one).

Sadly, it is not working. We are starting to believe that rock stars were warning us of the poop-storm that 2020 would inevitably be; take “Californication” by the Red Hot Chili Peppers for instance; it was totally trying to warn us of 2020!
“Psychic spies from China try to steal your mind’s elation and little girls from Sweden dream of silver screen quotation,” is literally the first words sung by Anthony Keidis in Californiacation.
Urm, he’s he talking about TikTok and Greta Thunberg?
The song continues: “And if you want these kind of dreams it’s Californication. It’s the edge of the world and all of Western civilisation. The sun may rise in the East at least it’s settled in a final location. It’s understood that Hollywood sells Californication.”
Some people think that this specific line in refers to TikTok spying on people and Greta Thunberg’s sudden internet and international fame.

This tweeter believes the lyrics to “Californication” by the Red Hot Chili Peppers (RHCP) might eerily be predicting the events of 2020 as well as the TikTok controversy and Greta Thunberg.
That last picture, I had no idea who was, but it’s apparently Curtis Yarvin; some blogger who believes that Hollywood celebrities will virtue signal pro-liberal ideologies while not exactly practising what they preach.
I don’t quite understand it, but maybe they are referring to that whole Nancy Pelosi going to a salon to get her hair down and not wearing a mask while the entire state of California is on lockdown and small businesses are closed? Who knows.

The next line, in particular, gives me the creeps.
“Born and raised by those who praise control of population.
Well, everybody’s been there and I don’t mean on vacation.”
Uh oh. Who wants to control the population? We’re all locked away in our houses or apartments right now… and it certainly is no vacation.
Do I believe that the Red Hot ChiliPeppers predicted 2020? Not really. But although the song is amazingly catchy and fun, the lyrics are super creepy and really makes you wonder.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers had to cancel a lot of shows earlier this year due to the virus.
“Dear everyone around the world: WE LOVE YOU. WE ARE THINKING ABOUT YOU. WE MISS YOU. WE MISS PLAYING MUSIC FOR YOU. STAY STRONG. STAY SAFE. WE WILL DANCE AND SING TOGETHER AGAIN SOON. WE ARE ALL ONE. WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER. WE ARE WITH YOU,” they tweeted back in April.
If the Red Hot Chili Peppers (RHCP) really could predict the future they wouldn’t have booked shows in 2020. They will return to the road in 2021, though. Their first gig back is at “Rock Werchter” on the 4th of July in Belgium.
