Can't Stop (4:28)

Cover of By the Way

From By the Way and 16 other releases

“Can’t Stop” is a song by American rock band, Red Hot Chili Peppers from their 2002 album, By the Way. It is the third single from the album. Since its release, the song has rarely been left off of a live set.

It is one of the only tracks on By the Way which revisits the original Chili Peppers method of short, rapped verses, containing fewer amounts of implemented texture. “Can’t Stop” is unique, however, as it contains melodic and layered guitar and lyrical progressions, which the band’s earlier work did not.

The song was the Chili Peppers’ seventh number one Billboard Modern Rock Hit, and peaked at number fifty-seven on the Billboard Hot 100. The song influenced various other charts Worldwide, as well as Modern Rock and Mainstream Rock charts, respectively.

This song is a playable track in the game Guitar Hero On Tour: Decades.
