"I mean I like this song (enough to buy the single), but let's alter it a little if we're going to call it a different remix. With a song being played 6 times or so, you want it to be altered more than they did. There is one other song on there, but I really didn't care for it. If you want to get your hands on 'Give it Away', tape it off someone else's cd."
A couple of cool songs, and a couple of horrible ones
(3 out of 5 stars)
"Give It Away is and will always be a Chili Peppers classic. Like it or not, it's one of the songs everybody knows.
The single contains that song, and just one other good song, which is a superb, amazing, classic cover of Iggy Pop's Search & Destroy, which they still played on their live shows recently.
The other three tracks, let's face it, are worthless. The radio mix of the song is just the same song but with a crappy audio mix that messes it up. The other two tracks are remixes, and WHO ON THIS EARTH LIKES REMIXES?
And anyway, after listening to Give It Away twice on the CD you will be already so bored of the song you'd prefer Britney Spears.
This is definately not one of the best RHCP singles in terms of B-Sides, but the title track and Search & Destroy make the single worth it."

"while this single gets a lot of criticism for having all the same song except search and destroy, i think it's really good.
while the mixes are all somewhat distinct (my favorite being the rasta mix, which gives it a completely different sound) from the original, it's not necessarily a cd you'd pop into the stereo and listen to straight, more of one that you'd put into a playlist on your mp3. they're all a nice alternative to the album version
also search and destroy is an awesome cover and i'm an avid lover of the original. well worth the three bucks.
(other pepper songs i like are: sir psycho sexy, funky monks, behind the sun, death of a martian, coffee shop, my friends, pea, soul to squeeze, especially in michigan, lovin' and touchin', save the population, can't stop, this is the place, cabron, zephyr song, purple stain... hope that helps)"
A good song, but...

"If you like Give It Away, you might as well just spend the extra few bucks and buy the whole Blood Sugar Sex Magik CD. You'll get the same song, but about 5 or 6 other good tunes to go with it."
