  • The video for "Catholic School Girls Rule" was aired only once in the U.S., on the Playboy Channel, because of a nude scene.[citation needed]
  • A video for the song "Good Time Boys", which featured cut away interview footage, was made as promotional video for Mother's Milk, but the song was never released as a single.
  • Two versions of "Under the Bridge" were filmed. The second, and rarely seen version featured less footage of Anthony walking down the street.[citation needed]
  • The video for "If You Have to Ask" has rarely been seen and was never aired in the United States and has been taken off the internet by the RIAA.[citation needed]
  • A second version of "My Friends" was filmed. To this date, Anthony, Flea and Chad all agree that they prefer the second version, which shows the band recording the song in the studio over the much more known version of them wearing dresses and in a boat. The band even included the second version and not the original on their Greatest Hits DVD.
  • The videos for "Road Trippin'" and "Universally Speaking" were not released in the United States until the 2003 Greatest Hits DVD. "Desecration Smile" is also a non-U.S. release.
  • On March 6, 2007 the Chili Peppers announced a contest for someone to direct a video for the song "Charlie" through their YouTube channel.[4] The video winner has been chosen, however, the song being released as a single is still unknown.
  • On August 17, 2011, the band released the music video for The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie. The video was originally directed by Kreayshawn however the band decided to shoot a second version with director, Marc Klasfeld and released his version. It is unknown why they decided not to go with Kreayshawn's video or if her video will ever be released.[5]
  • Two versions of the "Brendan's Death Song" video were released. Originally the shorter radio edit version of the video was released however the band wanted the longer version released as well.
