** What makes the case of this album particularly {{egregious}} is that even the vinyl mix was ruined - apparently, it was run through a digital dynamic range processor ''before'' being mastered for vinyl, which is usually mixed from analogue sources. The [=CDs=] of future RHCP albums were also brickwalled, but the vinyl mix of at least ''Stadium Arcadium'' was made from a pristine analogue mix by audiophile favourite Steve Hoffman that basically cancelled out all the CD version's flaws. With ''Californication'', listeners don't have that option with any of the commercially available versions, so the whole thing is basically ruined. The mastering however is still better on vinyl than on CD, due to the fact that the CD version was given additional compression compared to the vinyl version.

* HoYay: In the videos for "Knock Me Down" and "Taste The Pain" videos, Anthony kisses John, who reciprocates, going as far as to try to French kiss Anthony during the "Taste The Pain" video. Also in the "Warped" video, Anthony and Dave Navarro kiss (with a lot of tongue). The band as a whole can be very affectionate with each other with a lot of hugging and sometimes even kissing onstage (mostly involving Flea and Anthony).

* TheCoverChangesTheMeaning: The Chilis' cover of "Higher Ground" can be interpreted more as a tribute to funk and Music/StevieWonder, especially with Anthony's added rap near the end.

* AutoTune: Completely averted by Anthony, despite continual pressure from various music executives, because he isn't exactly the best singer.

** Anthony claims in "Scar Tissue" that the inspiration for the song came from an [[JailBait actual teenage Catholic School girl]], whom he slept with during one of his earlier tours. She also resembled MarilynMonroe.

** The reverse is true for fans who got into the band back in the EMI period - the modern day Peppers are completely weird compared to their familiar original incarnation.

* SexyPackaging:
** The cover of ''Mother's Milk'' depicts the Peppers in the arms of a giant naked woman with her nipples censored (one by a rose, and the other by Anthony providing a SceneryCensor).
** The single cover of "If You Have to Ask" focuses around a female butt clothed in yellow underwear that leaves little to the imagination.
