Red Hot Chili Peppers
August 14, 2012
Undisputed arena rock gods of the modern era, The Red Hot Chili Peppers have defied the odds to become one of the longest running and most consistent bands today. Transcending their checkered past as Southern Californian stoners tooling around with white boy funk, their signature sound is now a mainstay in alternative rock, repeatedly aped and repurposed by lesser talents. Despite the glut of imitators, no one blends fat bass lines, soaring guitars, and machine gun vocals quite like the Red Chili Peppers, and in all likelihood, it’s going to stay that way.
