"Aeroplane" is a song by the Red Hot Chili Peppers from their 1995 album "One Hot Minute". It was the third single released from the album and a music video accompanied its release. Although the song was left off the band's "Greatest Hits" CD, the music video was included on the accompanying DVD.

Despite its dark lyrical themes it is one of the more accessible songs on "One Hot Minute", with verses driven by a traditional funk slap bass line and upbeat melodies which are enhanced by child chorus vocals from Clara, Flea's daughter, and her classmates.
