    Folks:

    I need help. I know the riff is not Funkadelic's "What is Soul," I know the riff is not Band of Gypsys' "Machine Gun," but I know the riff. I was drunk at my neighbor's one night and he was playing some live recording of this and I was like, "yeah man, Chili Peppers did this, it's called What is Soul," and he thought I was nuts.



    SO what is the riff from?

    No. It's simple... what song are they covering here?

    AHA! I found it. The riff is from "Mommy, What's a Funkadelic?"
