Red Hot Chili Peppers Information Continued
The Red Hot Chili Peppers were part of an alternative rock movement of the 1980s and early 1990s to come out of California that included the likes of Jane's Addiction, Fishbone and Thelonious Monster. They have nine studio albums, nine #1 modern rock hits and have sold nearly 50 million copies of their albums worldwide (37 million of them by the albums Blood Sugar Sex Magik, Californication and By the Way).
The Red Hot Chili Peppers are mainly known for five things: Flea's powerful bass, their diverse musical precision, unique lyrical composition, wearing inside out cargo shants (pants mixed shorts) and their tendency to play bare chested (or sometimes even naked). Flea's bass styles lie in punk rock traditions and in funk and blues, borrowing mainly from the likes of Bootsy Collins of Parliament-Funkadelic and John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin. His bass is typically the lead instrument and sets the rhythm of the Red Hot Chili Peppers' songs.
On April 4, 2006, the band's first single "Dani California" from their latest album, Stadium Arcadium, was released. The music video features the band dressed as famous performers from the 1950's until today including Elvis, The Beatles, Cream with Jimi Hendrix, Parliament-Funkadelic, Garry Glitter with David Bowie, The Sex Pistols, The Misfits, Poison and Nirvana.
