On the song Happiness Loves Company the Chili's have a refrain where the Mothers are name checked.
The lyric is "The Mothers Of Invention are the best."

I knew that John was a big fan, but I didn't know the rest gave a shit. It was cool to hear.

Yeah I heard all of it. Itunes had it streaming for free. Not sure if its still up.
But i went into it with low expectations and was pleasantly surprised. Its a bit more poppy than they are known for. Matter for fact, the song in question is piano driven with miramba as well.
While it isnt going to cure cancer, I dug it, and I'm planning on picking it up on Tues.
Off the top of my head
Didn't I Let You Know
Happiness Loves Company
Police Station
Even You Brutus?
and the first three songs are all decent, to very decent.

Flea is pretty prominent on the whole disc and there are some very disco-esque songs.
I was also pretty impressed by Josh, I didn't expect much from him, but he more or less delivered.
