Anthony Kiedis, Flea, Chad Smith and Josh Klinghoffer joined James, singing extracts of their hits ‘Give it Away’, ‘Californication’ and ‘Can’t Stop’, as they drove around the LA suburbs.

Mid-journey, Kiedis and Corden challenged each other to an impromptu wrestling match. The boys spontaneously stopped the car and threw down on a stranger’s lawn!

Back in the car, Corden commented on how odd it was to be hanging with the Chili Peppers while they were fully dressed … among other things, most of the band’s members are pretty renowned for performing shirt-less, so when it came to singing “The Zephyr Song,” they lived up to their reputation by stripping down.

Back to mainstream business, the Grammy Award-winning Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees launched their new album, ‘The Getaway’ on June 17 on Warner Bros Records. The album was produced by Danger Mouse and mixed by Nigel Godrich. Red Hot Chili Peppers’ previous album, I’m With You, was released in 2011 and topped the charts in 18 countries.

1. The Getaway
