  • Lyrics
  • In this song, lead singer Perry Farrell takes on environmental destruction and cultural malaise, asking listeners to turn off both their smokestacks and radios. The "water will run" image seemed a little dramatic at the time, but history proved that Farrell was right, as climate change exasperated by humans led to floods and other natural disasters.
  • This song spent two weeks on top of the Modern Rock chart. The Ritual De Lo Habitual album was a huge hit on college radio.
  • Dave Navarro takes the lead in a wah-driven guitar solo, taking the #20 spot on Guitar World's 2015 list of greatest wah solos of all time.
