Californication, the hit song of Red Hot Chili Peppers, was chosen as "Song of the Decade" in Israel. Californication was chosen from 500 different songs that were popular in the last 10 years. The ranking was held by a popular radio station in Israel, and over 95 thousand people cast their vote and chose the best songs of the passing decade.

Californication received 7,715 votes, which landed it in 1st place. Beautiful by Christina Aguilera reached the 2nd place of the decade's Hit Parade. Evanescence with My Immortal ranked 3rd.

Californication is the seventh studio album by RHCP. The album was released on June 8, 1999 on Warner Bros. Records. Californication marked the return of John Frusciante, who had previously appeared on Mother's Milk and Blood Sugar Sex Magik, to replace Dave Navarro as the band's guitarist.

Californication's subject material incorporated various sexual innuendos commonly associated with the band, and introduced themes of lust, death, contemplations of suicide, and drugs.
