Red Hot Chili Peppers - Higher Ground - Free Online

Original official music video by the Red Hot Chili Peppers performing their cover of the classic Stevie Wonder song "Higher Ground" from the 1989 album "Mother's Milk". "Higher Ground" was the first single released from the album and peaked at number 11 on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks. The video was inspired by and contained footage from the band's breakthrough performance on the Arsenio Hall Show, and later earned an MTV Video Award nomination. British magazine "Total Guitar" named it the second greatest cover ever in 2000. The song and album represented a departure from previous RHCP efforts as the the album had more of a heavy metal sound with funk underpinnings rather than the funk/punk influence of earlier projects. The additions of guitarist John Frusciante and drummer Chad Smith energized founding members Anthony Kiedis and Flea who were very happy with the new direction. The song and video has proven to be very influential, taking on a life of its own in pop-culture. It was featured in the films Passenger 57 (1992), Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie (1995), Center Stage (2000), Walking Tall (2004), The Longest Yard (2005), The Karate Kid (2010), and The Change-Up (2011). This version has also been played in a season one episode of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. It is also featured in the video games Guitar Hero, Rocksmith, and SSX3 (in SSX3, a remixed version of the Red Hot Chili Peppers version done by the X-Ecutioners was used). The music video was featured in an episode of Beavis and Butt-Head. Enjoy!
