Desecration Smile (5:01)

Cover of Stadium Arcadium

From Stadium Arcadium and 1 other release

“Desecration Smile” is a song by American alternative rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers and the fourth (European) single from their 2006 studio album Stadium Arcadium.

The song was first heard by fans when it was played at the Bridge School Benefit in 2004. The song was bootlegged and can be found on the internet. However, the structure and chorus of the song are different from the version released on Stadium Arcadium.

The single version, was edited due to length for radio play and is shorter than the album version which is 4:15 long. A few of the lyrics have been removed for the radio edit, which is typical for longer songs released as singles.

The song was never released as a single in the United States.
