James Corden gets his kit off with the Red Hot Chili Peppers and hears them sing a bizarre unreleased song in the latest episode of Carpool Karaoke.

The Late Late Show host took off his top along with lead singer Anthony Kiedis and bass player Flea, as they cruised Los Angeles singing some of the Red Hot Chili Pepper's greatest hits, including Give It Away, Californication and By The Way.

After their performance of Can't Stop, Flea burst into Food Glorious Food from the musical Oliver!.

"I never ever thought that we would finish a Red Hot Chili Pepper's song and go straight into the musical Oliver!" said Corden after the song.


"You're lucky we haven't done Heme Leme," Flea replied.

Perplexed, Corden asked if they could perform the unreleased song.

"You don't wanna know," Kiedis insisted, "You say that now, and then you'll know and be like 'eww I should have listened'."

Flea went on to explain that they came up with the strange song when they were 15 after using marijuana in the woods. Flea and Kiedis then sang a snippet of Heme Leme, comprised mainly of gibberish lyrics.

"Are you sure it was just marijuana?" Corden joked after hearing the strange song.

Later, Corden challenged Kiedis to a wrestling match.

Corden pulled the car over so the pair could have at it on the front lawn of a random person's house.

The "man wrestling" ending up consisting largely of Corden giggling before Kiedis wrestled him to the ground.

"I didn't see that coming, Kiedis," Corden said after his defeat to the Under The Bridge musician.
