“Under the Bridge” is a song by American rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers. It is the eleventh track on the group's fifth studio album, Blood Sugar Sex Magik, and was released as its second single on March 10, 1992. Vocalist Anthony Kiedis wrote the lyrics to express feelings of loneliness and despondency, and to reflect on narcotics and their impact on his life. Kiedis was driving home from rehearsals when “Blood Sugar Sex Magik” was in pre-production and said he sang the lyrics to himself. Kiedis initially did not feel that “Under the Bridge” would fit into the Chili Peppers' repertoire, and was reluctant to show it to his bandmates until producer Rick Rubin implored him to do so. The rest of the band was receptive to the lyrics and wrote the music. The song became a critical and commercial success, peaking at number two on the Billboard Hot 100, behind “Jump” by Kris Kross and later receiving a platinum certification by the Recording Industry Association of America. The single's success was widened with the release of its accompanying video, which was frequently played on music television channels. It won the “Viewer's Choice Award” and “Breakthrough Video” at the 1992 MTV Video Music Awards. “Under the Bridge” helped the Red Hot Chili Peppers enter the mainstream. David Fricke of Rolling Stone said that the song “unexpectedly drop-kicked the band into the Top 10”, while Philip Booth of The Tampa Tribune commented that it was a “pretty, undulating, [and] by-now omnipresent single.” Its success led in part to the departure of guitarist John Frusciante, who preferred the band to remain underground. The song has become an inspiration to other artists, and remains a seminal component of the alternative rock movement of the early and mid-1990s.

“Under the Bridge” has been covered several times since its release in 1992. The song was first transcribed in 1994 by the a cappella group The Flying Pickets from their album The Original Flying Pickets: Volume 1. Notable jazz musician Frank Bennett covered the song by fusing elements of big bands and bebop in his 1996 album Five O'Clock Shadow. Hip hop artist Mos Def included the beginning verse of “Under the Bridge” in the song “Brooklyn,” from his 1999 record Black on Both Sides. He, however, changed the line “the city I live in, the City of Angels”, which refers to Los Angeles, to “the city I live in is beautiful Brooklyn,” to match his song's premise. Tony Hadley covered the song on his 1995 album Obsession. Britain's Royal Philharmonic Orchestra has modified “Under the Bridge” at several concerts—they perform various rock pieces combined into a single orchestral ensemble, often including the Chili Peppers' hit. Alternative hip hop band Gym Class Heroes performed “Under the Bridge” on the 2006 assemblage Punk Goes '90s, an album that compiled popular rock songs from the 1990s being covered by contemporary artists. Gym Class Heroes continued to play “Under the Bridge” during their tour; lead singer Travis McCoy has said that it is “a timeless song. It's one of those songs you hear and are like 'Damn did this shit just come out?'” The All Saints version of “Under the Bridge”, released in 1998, was the most successful cover version, reaching number one in the United Kingdom. The cover removed the final verse of the song that discusses drug use. The 1993 “Weird Al” Yankovic song “Bedrock Anthem”, set in the world of The Flintstones, begins with a brief parody of “Under the Bridge”, followed by a more extensive parody of “Give It Away”. In 2009, the Stanley Clarke Trio covered the song on the album Jazz in the Garden. John Craigie covers the song on his album Leave the Fire Behind.
