"Me and My Friends" is a song by The Red Hot Chili Peppers from their 1987 album, The Uplift Mofo Party Plan. It is the third song on the album and while never released as a single it received minor radio airplay. The song is an ode to friends and in it Anthony Kiedis sings of his friends, especially former guitarist Hillel Slovak. The band has played this song throughout their career as they've released new albums. The song was one of the band's most played tracks before their breakthrough album Blood Sugar Sex Magik. This is not to be confused with another Red Hot Chili Peppers song, "My Friends" (from 1995's One Hot Minute). "Me and My Friends" has been performed on every tour since 1986 making it the band's sixth most performed song behind only "Give It Away", "Under the Bridge", "Scar Tissue", "Californication" and "By the Way". This is the oldest song that the Red Hot Chili Peppers continue to perform in concert on a regular basis, and it one of the very few songs from their pre-stardom albums that are performed live in any capacity longer than a teaser. For Kiedis, the song hs a deep meaning, as it reminds him of what he had lost.
Spill Magazine considered "Me and My Friends" to be among the best songs from the album.
