- Don't Forget Me
- “By the Way” is the eighth studio album by the American rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers.
- Singles included "By the Way," "The Zephyr Song," "Can't Stop," "Dosed" and "Universally Speaking".
- The lyrical subject matter vocalist Anthony Kiedis addresses in By the Way is a divergence from previous Red Hot Chili Peppers albums, with Kiedis taking a more candid and reflective approach to his lyrics.
- Guitarist John Frusciante is credited with writing most of the album's melodies, backing vocal arrangements, bass lines, and guitar progressions, therefore changing the direction of the recording dramatically: "his warm, understated guitar work and his doo-wop style vocal harmonies are king this time around."
