Red Hot Chili Peppers


An alternative rock band formed in the 80's. Their style began as a fusion of rock, funk and rap, with elements from other genres too, but they have evolved into a finer, more polished style throughout the years.

Their early material is just ok for me, but nothing special. It wasn't until they had a steady lineup in 1989 that they took off. Blood Sugar Sex Magik is their greatest album, and a must for any fan of alternative rock. They're currently working on their new album.

My Top 5:
-Storm in a Teacup
-Give it Away
-Under the Bridge
-Otherside
-Higher Ground (cover)

In case you haven't listened to Storm in a Teacup, here it is:

  2. Hell yes. RCHP is one of the few who have been around for a long time, but still rock hard as ever. And each album is unique and different the previous one.

  3. I like the top 10 RHCP songs, but I've never heard Storm in a Teacup. I like it, though.

    The songs that radios play are so different than the best songs a band does. It makes me mad that I've never heard this on the radio.

  9. I've always liked them but never really loved them. I think I was more of a fan in the '90s.

  11. One of the rare bands where I actually like their newer stuff better.

    I think most of their old stuff is junk.

  20. Under the Bridge is one of the best songs of the 90s. Californication isn't bad either.

  24. I think you hit the nail right on the head with these guys, the "alternative" that is new in circulating now holds nothing against these incredibly talented bands from the 90s.
