"Catholic School Girls Rule" is a song from the 1985 album Freaky Styley by The Red Hot Chili Peppers. Although never released as a proper radio single, a music video for the song was made and was directed by longtime friend, Dick Rude. The video was only played on Playboy TV because of a nude scene, and because it also featured a controversial scene of Kiedis singing from on a cross.[1] The song was also featured on the band's 1992 compilation album, What Hits!? and the music video can be found on the VHS/DVD of the same name.

Background[edit]

The song is inspired by a 14-year-old girl who attended a local Catholic school that singer Anthony Kiedis briefly encountered backstage at a concert before discovering her age.[2]

The song has only been played live four times since 1987 and was last played on May 5, 2007
