"Hollywood (Africa)" is a song by American rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers, released as the second single from their second studio album, Freaky Styley (1985). It is a cover of the song "Africa" by funk group The Meters, from their 1974 album Rejuvenation. The Red Hot Chili Peppers version peaked at number two on the Gavin Report Alternative singles chart in October 1985.The song was also released on the band's 1992 compilation album, What Hits!?.
Freaky Styley producer George Clinton considers the song to be one of his favorites on the album. When Clinton would visit early Red Hot Chili Peppers gigs, he would go on stage during performances of "Hollywood (Africa)" to join lead singer Anthony Kiedis in singing and to incite the crowd.
Despite being a single, the song has not been performed live since 1992, though the song has been teased a few times since.
