Tearjerker was about Kurt and his death.

I doubt Anthony and co. would do that as a sign of disrespect.

They parodied the Beatles too, and half of them are dead.

Omg, so disrespectful!

The "upset fans" are probably little thirteen year old brats born years after Cobain's tragic death.

Another thing I will add is that I'm pretty sure the Chili Peppers song "Tearjerker" from the CD "One Hot Minute" is about Kurt as well.

ever heard of the song "Tearjerker" from the album One Hot Minute by Red Hot Chili Peppers?

"Left on the floor
Leaving your body
When highs are the lows
And lows are the way
So hard to stay
Guess now you know
I love you so

I liked your whiskers
And I liked the
Dimple in your chin
Your pale blue eyes"

Dedicated to Kurt, composed by Anthony muthafuckin Kiedis. now. still fucking furious?

So first of all, the pep's video Dani California was based on all of the artists that have inspired them. Second of all, The RHCP were actually quite close with Nirvana. This is proven by the shows they've done together, as well as RHCP's song Tearjerker which is about Kurt Cobain. So to those of you who are getting all defensive about the video, shut up because you obviously don't know either band.
