* GoneHorriblyWrong: At Woodstock 1999, JimiHendrix's sister approached the band and asked them to do a cover of one of her brother's songs. The band decided to play the cover after performing "Under the Bridge, during which they handed out lit candles to the audience as a symbol of peace; then, [[IdiotBall they decided to perform a cover of "Fire"]]. All hell broke loose.

** Their very first one would probably be "Lovin' and Touchin'" on ''Freaky Styley''. Many fans thought it was a parody (from the sophomoric snickers at the end), but time has shown that it wasn't - it was Anthony showing his sensitive side which he kept hidden until "Under The Bridge. "Grand Pappy Du Plenty, "Lovin And Touchin, "Behind the Sun, "Knock Me Down, a cover of SlyAndTheFamilyStone's "If You Want Me to Stay, and a cover of JimiHendrix's "Castles Made of Sand" helped shift their musical style.

* TheCoverChangesTheMeaning: The Chilis' cover of "Higher Ground" can be interpreted more as a tribute to funk and StevieWonder, especially with Anthony's added rap near the end.

* WhereDidWeGoWrong: From "Righteous and the Wicked: ''MarvinGaye my love/Where did we go wrong?''. The line references Gaye, a famous but depressed artist who gave his abusive father a gun, knowing full well that he would shoot him: and did. The song is about the lack of humanity epitomized by greed and war, and Anthony laments this act of filicide.

* BaitAndSwitch: Before many performances of "Right on Time, the band jokes that they are going to play a CelineDion song or an extremely soft song. They then break out into the intro of TheClash's "London Calling" before playing "Right on Time, which has a notoriously fast and intense slap-popping bassline.

** This is made all the more amusing given that GeorgeClinton (Creator of P-Funk) thought the band were awesome AND when producing Freaky Styley taught them to play funk even better than they did.



* AscendedFanon: The band called a rarities album "I'm Beside You" after seeing it in a forum thread of fan suggestions.



* BilingualBonus: "One Big Mob" has Anthony rapping ''Ek bara mela'', which is the Hindi equivalent of the title.

Frusciante left the band for the second time (this time, on good terms with the rest of the members) in 2009. John was replaced by Josh Klinghoffer, a young guitarist that collaborated with Frusciante on many of the latter's solo albums and toured with the Red Hots during the Stadium Arcadium album promotion. Their tenth studio album, ''[[YouAreNotAlone I'm with You]]'', was released in August 2011, showcasing Josh's rich perspective and eclectic dimension to the Chilis' sound. In January 2015, they began collaborating with Music/BrianBurton on their eleventh studio album.
