understands my potato
They think I'm only a spud boy
looking for a real tomato
Devo - "Smart Patrol/Mr. DNA"
At least they're not trying to justify it by claiming it has continuity with their previous work as they did with Dani California, 'no, you should like it, cause it's like Under the Bridge!'

This has potential to grow on me, but if I've learned anything with previous Peppers songs is if it's too derivative of their previous stuff, I'll skip it after the novelty wears off (happened to Dani California, and I listened to that a fair deal when it came out). Feels less gimmicky and more understated, though, which I like for a band that seemed to take the "more is more" approach on their last studio album.
