Breaking the Girl
Red Hot Chili Peppers Lyrics


I am a man
Cut from the know
Rarely do friends
Come and then go

She was a girl
Soft but estranged
We were the two
Our lives rearranged

Feeling so good that day
A feeling of love that day

Twisting and turning
Your feelings are burning
You're breaking the girl
(She meant you no harm)

Think you're so clever
But now you must sever
You're breaking the girl
(He loves no one else)

Raised by my dad
Girl of the day
He was my man
That was the way

She was the girl
Left alone
Feeling the need
To make me her home

I don't know what, when or why
The twilight of love had arrived

Twisting and turning
Your feelings are burning
You're breaking the girl
(She meant you no harm)

Think you're so clever
But now you must sever
You're breaking the girl
(He loves no one else)

Twisting and turning
Your feelings are burning
You're breaking the girl
(She meant you no harm)

Think you're so clever
But now you must sever
You're breaking the girl
(He loves no one else)

“Every time I’m reminded that the Red Hot Chili Peppers exist, I lose my mind.”

That’s one of the opening lines of an essay by former music executive Julie Farman, in which she discusses being sexually harassed by two members of the Red Hot Chili Peppers in 1990.

“Twenty-five years ago, when I worked at Epic, I had a fucked up experience with the Chili Peppers,” Farman wrote, in a post published last week on her personal blog Live From The Grayish Carpet. “The incident was about a 3 on the 1-10 scale of sexual harassment in the music business of the ‘80s and ‘90s, and I never consciously thought it was that big a deal.”

In the early ‘90s, the Chili Peppers were in their prime. (The band’s smash hit album, “Blood Sugar Sex Magik,” was released in September 1991.) At that time, Farman was an associate director of media and artist relations for the Epic Record’s West Coast division. Farman wrote that she had no interest in signing the Chili Peppers, but she met with the band as a favor to an A&R friend:

At first I refused to even go to a meeting with the band. The A&R guy was a friend, though, and after an hour of talking about it, I reluctantly agreed to attend. At the meeting, I did a credible impression of a person who didn’t think the Chili Peppers were assholes or that their music was completely fucking horrible; I talked enthusiastically about strategy, artist development and press campaigns, and I presented ideas on further establishing their image. None of them involved wearing socks on their dicks.
Farman wrote that she invited two of the RCHP bandmates to see the storage room at Epic after the meeting:

Afterwards, I took two of the Chili Peppers to the storage room where we kept the box sets and CDs. As we looked in the cabinet, they pressed up against me and told me about all of the ways we could make a super sexy sandwich.

At first, I thought they were joking. When I realized they weren’t, I ran from the storage room to my office, where I closed my door, sat down at my desk, and cried. I was humiliated and weirdly ashamed, and embarrassed that I was humiliated and weirdly ashamed. There was far worse going on in the music industry at the time, and I thought I was a badass. Being a victim didn’t fit my self-perception.
The Huffington Post reached out to The Red Hot Chili Pepper’s agency but did not hear back by the time of publication.

As Farman pointed out in her essay, in 1990 the band already had a reputation for sexist and violent behavior. Lead singer Anthony Kiedis was convicted on misdemeanor charges of sexual battery and indecent exposure in 1989. Two other bandmates, drummer Chad Smith and bassist Michael “Flea” Balzary, were arrested on charges of battery the same year.

Farman wrote that she was inspired to share her story after musician Amber Coffman tweeted accusations in January that music publicist Heathcliff Berru had sexually harassed her.

“Most of the women I know who worked in the music business in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s put up with sexual harassment. We didn’t talk about it to our friends, for the most part, and not many of us took any action,” Farman wrote. “We were ashamed or afraid or didn’t think we’d be believed. We thought we’d be blamed, or worse, we blamed ourselves. We didn’t want to be perceived as weak, and we thought that in order to succeed, we just had to put up with it.”

Farman ended her essay on a powerful and haunting note, writing: “Fuck the Red Hot Chili Peppers and the misogynistic culture of the music industry that kept me from speaking up in 1991. I wish I had.”

Beavis: This sucks, change it! 
Butthead: Shut up, fart knocker, this is cool!
Beavis: Who is this? 
Butthead: Dude! It's the Red Hot Chili Peppers!
Beavis: No way! Why are they playing like this?
Butthead: Uh, like, Chicks like this kind of music. This is the song that the Chili Peppers play when they want to get chicks. 
Beavis: Ohh! Ok, this is cool.

Jungle Bunny

I completely forgot that Beavis and Butt-head watched this video. Thing is, it's definitely not their only soft song. They were known for stuff like this.

But thinking about their more high-energy stuff, they don't exactly seem like the kind of band Beavis and Butthead would like.

Vincent Tavella

I wish they were still on cutting up on all the music n making fun of sum of the shitty ass music today 🤣

IMO, this is the Chili Peppers most epic song. It's so haunting...so timeless.

Steratore & Friends

Always makes me think back to that footage of a young, shaved head John with headphones, recording on his acoustic 12 string.. haunting indeed.. especially considering that young version of him quickly faded into the ether.. magic never had a shelf life

Jungle Bunny

@john withers I can relate. I can remember when I first heard this song as a kid just listening to the radio. Though it mostly just reminds me all those days back when Rock was interesting and alive. And it makes me sad that those days were so fleeting and we just had no idea. Well, I'll always have the memories...

Jungle Bunny

@Bass Lightyeah . That's what music will do to you. It's a moving tune.
