The '''Red Hot Chili Peppers''' are a world-famous alternative rock/funk rock band formed in 1983 in Los Angeles, California. One of the more prominent bands in the '80s funk scene, they exploded in popularity during the '90s and '00s and are considered by some to be a leading force in AlternativeRock. Their music style and content has significantly progressed from the energetic funk-rock and SexDrugsAndRockAndRoll concerns in their earlier days to more melodic musical backing and more varied subject matter. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012. Notably, Josh is the youngest inductee into the Hall of Fame at the tender age of 32.

* IAmTheBand: Arguably, Anthony. Flea plays a side band known as Atoms for Peace, Chad drums for a band named {{Chickenfoot}}, Josh has performed with varying artists, and Frusciante has released and continues to release many solo albums. However, Anthony is solely known for his work in RHCP and he and Flea have consistently been in the band since its inception; not counting, however, the few months Anthony was fired early on in the band's history due to his drug addiction. Still, Anthony is the more recognized face of RHCP.

AndAnotherThing: Kiedis released an autobiography in 2004 named ''Scar Tissue''. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LOD9Ze_gtQ4 Here's an interview where he discusses the book.]] Furthermore, Flea is [[http://www.nme.com/news/red-hot-chili-peppers/76480 reportedly]] writing his own.

* TextlessAlbumCover: None so far, but famed album artist [[{{Hipgnosis}} Storm Thorgerson]] did a few conceptual, artsy covers for ''Stadium Arcadium'', which can be seen [[http://stadium-arcadium.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=14152 here]]. The band instead went for a (virtually) text-only cover seen [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/e/e6/Stadiumarcadium.jpg here]], which Thorgerson described as "trite, dull, and derivative."

* SpringtimeForHitler: The SaturdayNightLive [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8tuByO1kS5U performance of "Under the Bridge"]]. Despite the fact that John's guitar playing nearly derailed the song, it increased album sales and popularity for the band, [[ItsPopularNowItSucks which was the opposite of what he actually wanted]].

** "Green Heaven" counts. It is against global pollution and government corruption: Anthony even calls the president (RonaldReagan at the time) a whore.

* AffectionateParody: The video for "Dani California" features the band singing the song dressed as humorous, but perfectly accurate parodies of rock acts from the 50s ([[Music/ElvisPresley Elvis]]) up until just prior to the modern day ({{Nirvana}}), ending with themselves dressed in their own typical concert attire, their logo hanging prominently in the background.

* ShoutOut: The video for "Dani California" features the band dressing in the style of several other bands, and in some cases even doing an homage to one of the band's videos. Most blatant during the line "Gone too fast," when Kiedis is dressed like [[Music/{{Nirvana}} Kurt Cobain]].

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/DangerMouse on their eleventh studio album.
