Good Time Boys

Album: Mother's Milk (1989)
  • The song describes the band. They have stated that they are the "Good Time Boys" who just play music to make you feel good.
  • The bridge of the song is very strange, and plays quick samples of three other songs. Those songs are Fishbone's "Bonin' in the Boneyard," a song by Firehose, and X's "Living with a White Girl." Both Fishbone and Firehose are mentioned during the song.
  • The Red Hot Chili Peppers fanclub's name comes from this song. They took the name from the made up word Anthony Kiedis chants during the song's outro, "Rockinfreakapotamus." >>
