RHCP Cover from Stevie Wonder from the album Mother's Milk 1989

The Red Hot Chili Peppers released a cover as the second single from their fourth studio album Mother's Milk. Their version earned an MTV Video Award nomination. It was featured in the films Passenger 57 (1992), Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie (1995), Center Stage (2000), Walking Tall (2004), The Longest Yard (2005), The Karate Kid (2010), and The Change-Up (2011). This version has also been played in a season one episode of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. It is also featured in the video games Guitar Hero, Rocksmith, and SSX3 (in SSX3, a remixed version of the Red Hot Chili Peppers version done by the X-Ecutioners was used). The music video was featured in an episode of Beavis and Butt-Head. The song was used by FX to promote The Ultimate Fighter: Live and it also serves as the show's theme song. As part of the "Year of a Million Dreams" Celebration, Space Mountain at Disneyland in Anaheim, California used this song as its soundtrack for 16 weeks, from 3 January 2007 to 26 April 2007. British magazine Total Guitar named it the second greatest cover ever in 2000.
