Tom Petty & the Chili Peppers, together at last

If you've been paying attention to music news the past couple days, you may have heard that the Red Hot Chili Peppers are in a bit of hot water. It seems their current hit single "Dani California" may well be a blatant rip-off of Tom Petty's hit "Mary Jane's Last Dance" from a decade or so ago. You can read a bit about the controversy here.

In response, one of C&T's awesome readers, Los Angeles-based producer DR. DEUTSCH, sent me a mash-up of "Dani California" and "Mary Jane's Last Dance" that he created. It's called "Mary Dani Janey, CA" and it's badass. Although something tells me Flea would have a hissy fit if he heard it. Check it out:

Tom Pepper and the Red Pettys - Mary Dani Janey, CA (Dr. D mix)

I say this should be used as evidence in the civil suit. Kick their asses, Tom. See you at Bonnaroo.

Check out Dr. Deutsch's website here. Thanks for sending it my way!

Actually, "Mary Jane" is from "Into The Great Wide Open". Just an FYI. Thanks for the post.

Oh! Thanks. You can see it's been several years since I've listened to either. Heh. Appreciate the note.

Mary Janes Last Dance is from greatest Hits, not from any CD. It's also a rip-off of The Jayhawks' Waiting For the Sun (Jayhawks opened for Petty before MJLD was released)

Just looked, and right you are. It's on 'Greatest Hits' according to Amazon.
