Kevin McCarthy : I think if Jimi did it nowadays he would have gotten tons of shit from Social Media.

DAMIEN : It was original, inspired, spontaneous, unexpected, suprising ... all things you haters can't deal with i guess..

Agun Wiriadisasra : When Cliff Burton & Jimi Hendrix collide

Sean Tracy : Looking forward to everyone who will comment with a criticism who have no clue how to even play a bass guitar. It's cute.

Sebastian Claudio : Music is not always supposed to sound pretty. That is flea's interpretation of the anthem and I sure as hell respect it. You rock flea

Aknew Promise : Brilliant. Nuanced. Not American Idol. Popular music is in the dark ages and most people listen to the radio to guide the development of their tastes. Hence, this array of notes and expression may have seemed bewildering to the poorly and corporately trained ear. Flea is a real musician, an alchemist, a mystic. If hearing this, for you, brought about a reaction not unlike hanging garlic around a vampires neck, I am talking to you.

Anthony Whitt : You guys are nuts...I thought it was Genius.

Mike Elbery : Flea, you are the shiznizal my frazizal. Your rendition of the National Anthem was sick. Up there with Jimi. Oh ya, and I love the Peppers!!!!!!!

Bryce Romero : Guys... It's flea what did you expect

Chris : I honestly think it sounds pretty good. Unique and original.

JJ RB : Am I the only one that actually likes it?

Bill M : I hate the Lakers & RHCP but this was awesome.

Miguel Angel Aquino Gutierrez : Me gustó muchísimo 😢😢

SuperKaylaDee : It's like skrillex and Jimi Hendricks had a baby lol

Hell YEah : Awesome !!

Angel Paredes : This version is awful compared to the other one that he did a couple years before, the wah effect kinda fucks it up, anyway... is always good to see flea play live

Jae Beez : 👏👏👏👍

Juha Leskinen : That's how you rape national anthem.

Allan Davis : I don't think Kobe was feeling it.

High Crimes : Big deal, folks knew what he was capable of. Stop piling on...

stephen jedlicka : Hahahaha... The bass solo has been resurrected.

seukfuhi : WTF Flea ?!? Were you drunk or what ?

Monstro da Lagoa Negra : this sounds awful

alejandro landeros : I still love ya Flea.

Edu Martínez : Mixing an anthem with a bass is like mixing Hitler with Isis. What do you expect?

Carlos Rivera : Why didn't the band just play the lakers tune off of mothers milk??

José N. García : horrendous

Big Daddy : Flea for president! !

tnt4020 : i was hoping something epic :(

logginsmcgee : Wow. That's terrible. You're an adult man, Flea, and have been playing bass guitar for decades. This is garbage.

Augusto Pinochet : What an embarrassment

Joseph Hougelman : Putrid

YUNGWETBACK : Flea go drunk your home

19chrisale87 : Awful

bballlifewade33 : God almighty this is terrible. What the hell were they thinking of having flea play..?? What an insult to the legend to have this trash play. I tried listening over and over to this performance, but it's just SOO bad.

wjveryzer7985 : I dont understand how anyone who even has ANY knowledge of flea or the peppers expected anything different. Its exactly what i expected. National anthem in fleas style. Is it different? Yes Will everyone love it? no but damn calm down people!

esquibelle : truly embarrassing

blake ross : Every artist has a "What the hell were they thinking?!" moment. As much as I love Flea and the way he owns the fretboard on every other piece of music he plays, this made me heave an almost painful sigh. I know he wanted to be apart of Kobe's last game, but like this? Man...

Tyler Spriggs : I'm convinced he fucked it up on purpose, I don't even like the Chilli Peppers but he's so much better than this. If he butchered it on purpose I'd think it was great. Hope so.

Mystery Painter : Horrid

HubbzZ : I love flea but I think he would have been better off with a more straightforward interpretation of the song. I think they should have had just a really great singer belt it out but that's just me.

DOTNINETEEN .19 : Not everyone has good taste Just look at these comments Art is art Taste is subjective So if you think this is trash then that would make you a hipocrite Because whatever you listen to is also called trash by other people Video aside Not everyone has good taste

I'll Have a latte : ....and this is why I don't really like Cali...people actually cheered.

Pedulla 2015 : Man the idiotic comparisons to Jimi Hendrix are amazing. What does anyone else's version of the National Anthem have to do with this?

PianoXfan1 : I'd break that guitar over his head if he butchered my anthem like that.

Danilo Fonseca : exotic

Max. N : Flea is great but tried to sound to much like jimi hendrix

Dom Hunt : Oh my

Scott Martindell : that was horrible

Mr. Drugs : was that a normal pedal board or is it a killswitch pedal?
