Jungle Man (song)
"Jungle Man" is the first single from the Red Hot Chili Peppers 1985 album, Freaky Styley. A music video released around the same time of the album's release on August 16, 1985. The band couldn't get a proper music video released so manager, Lindy Goetz decided to just piece together many different clips of live performances of the song edited together with the album version of the song playing on top.
Singer Anthony Kiedis wrote the lyrics because the track reminded him of his best friend, the band's bassist Flea.
Jungle Man has not been performed live since 1988 on the final tour with Hillel Slovak and Jack Irons although on October 19, 2011 the band teased playing it however did not play the entire song.
