** Subverted when it seems as though "Dani California" samples TomPetty's "Last Dance with Mary Jane" at the end. "Dani California" is tuned a half step higher than the latter, and TomPetty didn't really care whether or not the song was intentionally copied or not.

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.

Their [[SelfTitledAlbum eponymous]] first album was panned by critics, due to [[TroubledProduction production conflicts]] between [[Music/GangOfFour Andy Gill]], the album's producer, and the band. The Red Hots' second album, ''[[MeaninglessMeaningfulWords Freaky Styley]]'', featured Slovak back on guitar (he had quit ''What Is This?''), with Sherman kicked out after touring for the debut ended. Music/GeorgeClinton's production of the album helped establish the band's identity as a FunkRock band. After the album's recording, Kiedis and Flea fired Martinez as they felt he was not committed to the band anymore. He was replaced with Irons, and the reunited original four members released their semi-successful third album ''[[FunkRock The Uplift Mofo]] [[WildTeenParty Party Plan]]''. The latter album was their most successful one at the time.

Tragedy struck when Slovak was killed by a heroin overdose, prompting Irons's [[TearJerker tearful departure]] from the band. Kiedis, a junkie at the time, cleaned up, and the band worked toward redemption. The band then recruited Music/JohnFrusciante on guitar (their youngest member, then only eighteen) and Chad Smith on drums. The gang released ''[[BuxomIsBetter Mother's Milk]]'', their fourth album, in 1989. The album built on ''Plan''[='s=] success and spawned two successful singles, the OdeToSobriety "Knock Me Down" and the FunkMetal'd cover of Music/StevieWonder's "Higher Ground". The band soon [[ChannelHop jumped from EMI to Warner Bros.]], and released their breakout album, 1991's ''[[WordSaladTitle Blood Sugar Sex Magik]]'', on which famous RecordProducer Music/RickRubin gave them his trademark clear, straightforward production to benefit a concentrated, memorable batch of wacky [[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly genre-bending funk rock]]. This led them to critical acclaim and a wider audience thanks to the EpicRiff-filled hits "Give It Away" and "Under the Bridge".

Frusciante, however, left the band mid-tour in 1992 because [[ItsPopularNowItSucks he hated the band's popularity]], and he had [[ReclusiveArtist alienated himself from the other band members]]. While Frusciante spent the next 5 years shooting up heroin in the Hollywood Hills and almost killing himself, the Peppers, after much thought, signed former Music/JanesAddiction guitarist Dave Navarro in his place. Their sixth album, after many delays, was released in 1995. ''[[DarkerAndEdgier One Hot Minute]]'' was dark and psychedelic, in response to Kiedis's introspective, [[LyricalDissonance lyrical subject matter]], where he openly confronted his drug relapse. Navarro's own preference for psychedelia over funk and jams remained dominant on the album, which created tension with Flea. Despite boasting some great music, it was a let-down from their super-hit previous album.

The band entered a low point, punctuated after Frusciante, miraculously, checked himself into rehab in 1997. Navarro was let go to let Frusciante back in. The Peppers' 1999 hit seventh album ''[[{{Portmanteau}} Californi]][[SexisCool cation]]'', and their slow, melodic, eighth album, released in 2002, ''[[NewSoundAlbum By the Way]]'', propelled them back to stardom. 2006's ''[[LeastRhymableWord Stadium]] [[SanctuaryOfSolitude Arcadium]]'', their ninth album, was a vague CallBack to the band's funky roots while exploring new terrains in [[PsychedelicRock psychedelia]] and [[AlternativeRock alternative]]. The band has since become world-famous and extremely influential, owing to their strong sense of community and friendship.

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 ''The Getaway'', released in June 2016.

* Cloudcukoolander: All the band members are this to some degree.
** To put this into perspective, Buckethead once auditioned for the band and was was turned away because (other than not knowing any of the band's songs) the Chilis thought he was TOO NORMAL.
* Cloudcuckoolander's Minder: Josh has stated that he feels like this occasionally.



* Gratuitous Japanese: Anthony once ended a show by saying "konichiwa" (Japanese for "hello")



** "Sick Love" has shades of this as well, especially the video.



* During part of the Getaway tour, Josh got annoyed with audience members filming the concerst on their phones instead of having fun. During one performance of Californication, rather than playing his solo Josh took out his phone and pretended to film the audience.



* I Call It "Vera": Josh names his guitars.



* LyricalTic: Anthony's pronunciation of the word ''girl''.

to:

* LyricalTic: Anthony's pronunciation of the word ''girl''. He also seems to use a lot of "yeah"s, "oh"s, "hey"s, and references to California.



** However, there are reports that Rick is not going to produce the band's next album: this is the first time in 25 years that he isn't going to be a producer.

** However, there are reports that Rick is not going to produce the band's next album: this is album "The Getaway" was produced by Danger Mouse instead: the first time in 25 years that he isn't going to be a Rick was not the producer.



** Both have had temper tantrums with their equipment on stage, however. Josh, in fact, recently broke his foot in Oakland, California after getting angry with the tone of his guitar solo during the song "Otherside. He later apologized on stage for it, though.

** The video for "Go Robot" is a homage to the film Saturday Night Fever.



* Sophisticated As Hell: Anthony displays this occasionally, especially in his lyrics.
**This is incredibly obvious during the band's Carpool Karaoke appearance.



** Elton John played a few piano chords for the song "Sick Love"



** Josh occasionally sings/teases songs he likes during live performances.
** During the Getaway tour, Anthony's son Everly has sung live with the band a few times, notably when he and Tony sang "Dreams of a Samurai" and "Go Robot" together.



** The conclusion to "Dani California counts as well.



** There are actually quite a few of these. Other examples include "Give it Away", "Can't Stop", "Otherside", "Sick Love" and, to a lesser extent, "Go Robot".



* TitleDrop: ''Freaky Styley'', ''Blood Sugar Sex Magik'', ''One Hot Minute'', ''Californication'', ''By The Way'' and ''Stadium Arcadium'' all have their own title tracks.
** In fact, the band wished to break away from the pattern of sharing their album names with a track, which is why they decided on the latest name, ''I'm With You''.

Added DiffLines:

**Notably averted with josh who said he usually has "at least three layers on" and has yet to be seen without a shirt. Not because he's shy (he's not opposed to wearing something equally ridiculous, such as a sparkly gold blazer during the super bowl or a bra that was thrown on the stage by a fan) but because he gets cold.
