When to give up in dating

Kiedis wanted the video to be visually distinct and readily identifiable but disliked much of the material Warner Bros.sent for him to choose from: "I started viewing reels and reels and reels of video directors but nothing looked good to me."Give It Away" was released as the lead single from Blood Sugar Sex Magik in early September 1991, shortly before the record went on sale. sought to premiere the song on a popular rock radio station in Texas, but were turned down when the format refused to air the track—they told employees at the label to "come back to us when you have a melody in your song".

And that was it." The song continues through several verses and choruses before reaching a bridge that introduces the outro, which consists of "a hard-rocking riff" that, according to Huey, strongly resembles the main riff from Black Sabbath's "Sweet Leaf" from their 1971 record Master of Reality.

Kiedis repeats "Give it away now" for several measures before the guitar, bass and drums drop out.

Producer Rick Rubin had a considerable influence on the sound of Blood Sugar Sex Magik by removing much of the reverb and guitar layering that epitomized the band's previous album Mother's Milk.

This caused the record to contain simpler and dryer guitar and bass chords that were not filtered through guitar effects—those that did, however, were made with vintage electronics from the 1960s and 70s.

The hook is irresistible and the message, about 'material excess,' is delivered simply and straightforwardly." Steve Huey of Allmusic felt the song was enhanced by Kiedis' lyrics, which were "a free-associative mixture of positive vibes, tributes to musical heroes, and free love, and their literal meaning was often as difficult to understand as Kiedis' nasal, staccato enunciation.

But that distinctive vocal style helped make the most comprehensible lines even catchier and more memorable, greatly enhancing the song's appeal." He continued by praising the track's music, "John Frusciante's guitar should not be underappreciated either; his noisy, scratchy funk-rock work add[s] depth and texture to the powerhouse rhythm section of Flea and Chad Smith." Since the song's release, it has become a notable factor in the Red Hot Chili Peppers' success and has won a variety of accolades.

"Give It Away" is a song by American rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers from the group's fifth studio album, Blood Sugar Sex Magik.

It was released as the lead single from their album on September 4, 1991, by Warner Bros. The music was written by guitarist John Frusciante and bassist Flea during a jam session months prior to the album recording sessions.

Steve Huey of Allmusic noted that while the single "didn't achieve the massive pop success of its follow-up, 'Under the Bridge' [...] it did become one of the band's most instantly recognizable songs." Following the Chili Peppers' tour in support of Mother's Milk (1989), the duo spent time in a side project called H. The band then reconvened at a later time and chose the most appropriate inclusion.
