About Red Hot Chili Peppers
The Red Hot Chili Peppers have had quite a bumpy road to success. Since the band first came together in the early 1980's, the group has faced drug addiction, the death of a band member, personality conflicts, a revolving door of guitarists, bad production, bad management, and failed albums.
Despite it all, the Red Hot Chili Peppers have become an important part of pop culture with their unique musical style that defies categorization. Of the Chili Peppers' new album I'm With You, Frontman Anthony Kiedis says, "There's some retardedly painful funk on this record. There are a few songs that are just straight-up dirty funk, and beyond that, there's this ongoing progression of everything else that has been slowly happening between Californication and By the Way, with harmonies and textures."
The Red Hot Chili Peppers Greatest Hits album-likely the first of many-features a collection of equally… dirty?... funk along with more punk rock sounds in the band's first set of Top 40 hits. "Californication", "Scar Tissue", and "Otherside", originally from the Californication album, illustrate the well-blended musical style that has evolved out of the Chili Peppers' earlier body of work. With Red Hot lyrics like "Born and raised by those who praise/Control of population/everybody's been there and I don't mean on vacation/Destruction leads to a very rough road/But it also breeds creation" the Chili Peppers demonstrate that their years of hard times have resulted in real growth as artists and, perhaps, as people.
