Red Hot Chili Peppers Obama
The Red Hot Chili Peppers will play a show for the Obama campaign in Cleveland this weekend.

It's a good week for the Obama campaign: George Clooney agreed to host a fundraiser for the President's campaign and the DNC and the Red Hot Chili Peppers are playing a free show for the campaign's volunteers.

The band will be in Cleveland this weekend to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and they've decided to let local campaign workers who volunteered on phone banks to attend the show for free. The concert will take place at the House of Blues.

A local news outlet reports that the RHCP show will mark the first time in the President's reelection campaign that a rock band is lending its help.

The Peppers' last album, I'm With You, was released in August. Other 2012 inductees into the Rock Hall include The Beastie Boys, Guns n' Roses, Donovan and Faces. No word yet on any surprise campaign appearances by Axl Rose.

Lyrics: Come to decide that the things that I tried Were in my life just to get high on When I sit alone come get a little known But I need more than myself this time Step from the road to the sea to the sky And I do believe that we rely on When I lay it on Come get to play it on All my life to sacrifice Hey oh listen what I say oh I got your Hey oh now listen what I say oh, oh When will I know that I really can't go To the well once more time to decide on When it's killing me When will I really see All that I need to look inside Come to believe that I better not leave Before I get my chance to ride When it's killing me What do I really need All that I need to look inside Hey oh listen what I say oh Come back and Hey oh look at what I say oh The more I see the less I know The more I like to let it go hey oh Wooooaaah Deep beneath the cover of another perfect wonder Where it's so white as snow Privately divided by a world so undecided And there's nowhere to go In between the cover of another perfect wonder And it's so white as snow Running through the field where all my tracks will Be concealed and there's nowhere to go oh! When to descend to amend for a friend All the channels that have broken down Now you bring it up I'm gonna ring it up Just to hear you sing it out Step from the road to the sea to the sky And I do believe what we rely on When I lay it on Come get to play it on All my life to sacrifice Hey oh <b>...</b>
