Red Hot Chili Peppers’ song ‘Under The Bridge’ is one of the greatest, most iconic rock songs of the 20th century. That is because of the song’s subject matter in its lyrical content and a musical arrangement that expertly captures that emotion. Now, that iconic composition has been re-worked by the duo of Chino XL and Rama Duke and given a whole new life and identity.
The duo’s new re-working of the band’s song has given it a hip-hop vibe that also maintains the guitar riff that helped the original composition become so beloved, adding to the song’s interest even more.
As if that is not enough, the song’s companion, which can be viewed online now here, touches just as much on the new lyrics, making the new take on the classic hit even harder.
Jarred Gosselin, 1520 Entertainment partner, said he hoped this updated take on the timeless RHCP song would hit this generation just as hard as the original song.
“We hope that our hybrid version of ‘Under The Bridge’ might save some lives and inspire a new generation,” Gosselin said. He added the inspiration to craft the song came after he heard her working on a cover of the song with a band in the early 2000s. That take on the song was never released, said Gosselin.
Chino XL and Rama Duke’s updated take of ‘Under The Bridge’ is playing at radio stations nationwide now. It is also available for download at all major digital distribution sites.
A portion of the song’s sales will go to benefit the California-based Action Family Foundation, which works with young people and their families to resolve issues related to drugs, alcohol, sex and drugs.
