By The Way è la title-track dell’album studio dei Red Hot Chili Peppers datato 2002 (l’ottavo). E’ un punto di riferimento di tutti i live del gruppo, ed uno dei loro maggiori successi in classifica, al pari del successivo Dani California e secondo solo a Scar Tissue, che rimase in testa alla classifica della Modern Rock Tracks americana per la bellezza di 16 settimane consecutive (By The Way per 14).
Il testo parla della storia di una ragazza di nome Dani, che era già stata citata nel brano Californication e alla quale fa riferimento la stessa Dani California.
