Happy 50th Birthday, Anthony Kiedis!

Here's a fun fact to make you feel old: Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman celebrates his 50th birthday today. When Flea turned 50 last month, the bassist threw a celebrity-filled concert/benefit for The Silverlake Conservatory of Music. We haven't been privy to Kiedis' birthday plans, but we'll just presume it will involve him taking off his shirt, waving it around and manically jumping around some stage. To celebrate the eternally youthful singer, we've compiled 50 of the Chilis' best songs in their nearly 30-year career, from their earliest singles to the recently released "Never Is a Long Time." Happy Birthday, bud.
