  • In the first segment ("iTunes Originals"), the band introduces themselves as different names, John Frusciante introduces himself as Anthony Kiedis, Flea introduces himself as Chad Smith, Anthony Kiedis as Hilarious J-Money Pants, and Chad Smith as Flea.
  • In the segment "Working with Rick Rubin", the band and Rubin are both discussing meetings that they had; however, they are referring to two separate incidents. Anthony Kiedis and Flea talk about a meeting that apparently happened in 1985 or 1986, in their recording space at EMI Records. According to Kiedis, Rick Rubin later admitted that he was shocked to see the attitude and energy coming from the band members, and did not know what to think of it. Rubin, however, mentions a later meeting with the Red Hot Chili Peppers, during which they were being signed to a new record company (Warner Bros.). Rubin ended up producing their first album with Warner Bros. (their breakthrough album Blood Sugar Sex Magik), as well as every album that followed.
