“Get On Top” was created after a jam session that was conducted shortly after guitarist John Frusciante had listened to Public Enemy.

I was listening to Public Enemy one morning, and I came up with on the way to rehearsal—just tapping it out with my foot. In fact, that’s me working Flea’s wah pedal with that rhythm at the end of the song.

The song notably features significant use of an Ibanez WH-10 Wah Pedal, and according to Frusciante, the understated guitar solo heard in the middle of the song was originally intended to be more noticeable. Frusciante changed his thought process after listening to Steve Howe’s guitar solo on “Siberian Khatru” by Yes:

The band sounded really big—and they’re playing really fast—and then this clean guitar solo comes out over on top. It’s really beautiful, like it’s on its own sort of shelf. For “Get On Top” I wanted to play something that contrasted between the solo and the background.
