A Strong Bass But A Bit Repetitive Karmeleaux
Let's face it, if you ever heard this song before, the bass and drums probably stuck with you.

The verse has great movement and use of HO/POs and is of course a blast, but unfortunately it never really variates so it gets a bit old.

The chorus is largely built around moving around the fretboard in a predictable manner, but there are two things that make it fun: one, the fact the song's in 6/8 so it still plays uniquely; and two, Flea, particularly the slow scales thrown in.

Outside of that, the only other rhythm is the bridge, which is built around a fair amount of movement with some short but interesting use of HO/POs. However, it's not a Flea bass without at least one epic bass part, and there's an incredibly long HO/PO chain that connects the bridge back into the chorus which is just amazing to play.

It's very enjoyable, but it's still got a fair bit of repetition in there so I can't recommend it to everyone. Regardless, it doesn't hurt to look it up on YouTube for yourself.
