"Soul to Squeeze" is a song by the American rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers that was originally recorded during the production of their fifth studio album, Blood Sugar Sex Magik (1991).[1] Although it was not featured on the record[1] and was used as a B-side on the singles "Give It Away" and "Under the Bridge",[2] "Soul to Squeeze" was later released as a single in 1993.[3] The song was included in the Coneheads film soundtrack.[4] "Soul to Squeeze" was eventually re-released for the 2003 Greatest Hits album.[5] It can also be found on the band's Live Rare Remix Box and The Plasma Shaft.

"Soul to Squeeze" became an unexpected success when it peaked at number one on the US Modern Rock Tracks.[6] The single also peaked at number twenty-two on the Hot 100 and number seven on the Mainstream Rock chart.[7]
