February 22, 1992

Feb22On this day in 1992, the Red Hot Chili Peppers performed ‘Under The Bridge’ on Saturday Night Live.

Guitarist John Frusciante purposely messed with the chords and vocals during the the song, often playing off-beat and in the wrong key. He finished by screaming and whispering into the microphone during his background vocal part, under the bridge downtown.

Frusciante’s frustrations would lead him to quit the band less than three months later.
