Originating in the 80s, the Red Hot Chili Peppers are one of the first bands ever to mix cool raps with some punk and heavy metal, along with great guitar solos. Authors of the famous under the bridge (widely mistaken as city of angels), the Red Hot Chili Peppers were influencial to many styles today, including groups such as the stone temple pilots, and even rage against the machine.
Flea has amazing bass solos!

“If anyone decides to make a Red Hot Chili Peppers biopic, the most apt title has already been taken by M Night Shyamalan: Unbreakable. The tagline they could filch from Nietzsche: what doesn’t kill them makes them stronger”. So wrote Q magazine in 2002 just before the release of the critically acclaimed By The Way album. This album marked a turning point in the history of this band, as it was the moment when they finally turned their back on the bass-oriented music of their past, and moved forward in a way that seemed impossible to those who had been long-time fans of the band. This was not only due to the fact that it was musically so different to the blistering, George Clinton led, and in some cases produced, funk rock of their early albums, but also because it seemed for a long time that the Red Hot Chili Peppers simply could not possibly exist over 20 years after their formation. After all, any band that had been through 8 guitarists, 4 drummers, and more drug problems than any group could reasonably expect to survive, surely couldn’t be at the peak of its popularity after over 20 years of existence, could it? The answer, as demonstrated by the band’s massive series of concerts over this summer, is a resounding yes.

A funk rock band, currently made up of singer Anthony Kiedis, Flea (born Michael Balzary), John Frusciante and Chad Smith. They have gone through various line-up changes, but mainly based around Kiedis and Flea.
Flea is one of the best bassists in history, with frequent use of slap bass technique.
Hillel Slovak was arguably their best guitarist, but died tragically from a heroin overdose.
They have released 8 albums to date. Their first four albums are the better but unfortunately lesser known material.

An interesting fact about Anthony Kiedis is that he is of Lithuanian and Apache Indian descent.
Red Hot Chili Peppers used to be great.

The greatest band in the world. EVER! Containing Anthony Kiedis, with his amazingly original singing-rap style, John Frusciante, i.e. God with a guitar, Flea, the greatest bassist in the world, and Chad Smith, who is an amazing drummer. Add that to their love for each other, and you get the greatest band in the world.
"Hey, you know the chilis?"
"Oh, the greatest band in the world?"
"Well they rock, dude!"
"Yeh, I know!"
