"Universally Speaking" is a song by the Red Hot Chili Peppers from their 2002 album By the Way. It was the fifth and final single from the album and was released solely in Europe and Australia. The track was also included on their live album Live in Hyde Park and their Greatest Hits album.
The video for the song features Dave Sheridan, who plays a deranged concertgoer who attempts to return a book to vocalist Anthony Kiedis, who left the book in his taxi in the video to "By the Way". The book he is returning to Kiedis is "Lexicon Devil: The Fast Times and Short Life of Darby Crash and the Germs", which is the biography of Darby Crash, the late frontman for the late 70's punk band The Germs and was written by Brendan Mullen. The music video was directed by longtime friend Dick Rude who also directed the video for "Catholic School Girls Rule" and the live DVD Off the Map.
