Red Hot Chili Peppers

The Red Hot Chili Peppers are an American rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1983. Their music incorporates elements of alternative rock, funk, punk rock and psychedelic rock. The band consists of vocalist Anthony Kiedis, bassist Flea, drummer Chad Smith, and guitarist John Frusciante. With over 100 million records sold worldwide, the Red Hot Chili Peppers are one of the best-selling bands of all time. They are the most successful band in the history of alternative rock, with the records for most number-one singles (13), most cumulative weeks at number one (85) and most top-ten songs (25) on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart. They have won six Grammy Awards, and in 2012 were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The Red Hot Chili Peppers were formed in Los Angeles by Kiedis, Flea, guitarist Hillel Slovak and drummer Jack Irons. Due to commitments to other bands, Slovak and Irons did not play on the band's 1984 self-titled debut album, which instead featured guitarist Jack Sherman and drummer Cliff Martinez. Slovak rejoined for their second album, Freaky Styley (1985), and Irons for their third, The Uplift Mofo Party Plan (1987). Slovak died of a drug overdose on June 25, 1988; Irons, devastated, left the band.

Give It Away (Red Hot Chili Peppers song)

"Give It Away" is a song by American rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers from the group's fifth studio album, Blood Sugar Sex Magik. It was released as the lead single from their album on September 4, 1991, by Warner Bros. Records. The music was written by guitarist John Frusciante and bassist Flea during a jam session months prior to the album recording sessions. Vocalist Anthony Kiedis wrote the song's most prevalent lyrical refrain in response to an experience he shared with former girlfriend Nina Hagen regarding altruistic behavior and the value of selflessness. "Give It Away" went on to achieve international fame, reaching number one on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks in late 1991, giving the band their first ever number one single. In 1992 the single charted inside the top 75 of the US Hot 100 in the wake of the huge success of the record's second single "Under the Bridge". "Give It Away" also became the band's first top ten hit in the United Kingdom, where it peaked at number nine on the UK Singles Chart; this didn't occur until February 1994, nearly 2 and a half years after it was first released in the US.The accompanying music video, which was directed by French film-maker Stéphane Sednaoui, was put into heavy rotation on music-television stations such as MTV and added to the band's success. Since its release, "Give It Away" has gone on to receive numerous accolades, including a Grammy Award for the Best Hard Rock Performance With Vocals in 1992.

They were replaced before the end of the year by Jack Sherman and Cliff Martinez, respectively, who performed on the group's self-titled debut album. After the resulting promotional concert tour ended in December 1984, Sherman was fired following tensions with Kiedis and Flea.Having recently left What Is This?, Slovak returned to RHCP in January 1985. During the tour in promotion of Freaky Styley, Martinez was replaced by the returning Jack Irons, who rejoined in April 1986 to mark the reunion of the group's original lineup.

List of songs recorded by Red Hot Chili Peppers

The American funk rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers has released 11 studio albums, two live albums, 12 compilation albums, 11 video albums (including promotional releases), five extended plays, 61 singles (including promotional releases), and 48 music videos. Formed in 1983 by vocalist Anthony Kiedis, bassist Flea, guitarist Hillel Slovak, and drummer Jack Irons, the group recorded their self-titled debut album the following year with producer Andy Gill. Recorded instead with guitarist Jack Sherman and drummer Cliff Martinez, the album introduced the band's funk metal style and served as an introduction to the band's rap rock-roots. Slovak returned to the band for the George Clinton-produced Freaky Styley (1985). Their pure funk album, its songs are noticeably influenced by Clinton and Slovak, who's guitar playing helped shape the group as a cohesive unit. The Uplift Mofo Party Plan (1987) was produced by Michael Beinhorn and featured all four founding members. It features the band's signature funk rock style, with reggae and heavy metal influences. Following Slovak's death from a drug overdose in 1988, Irons left the band, forcing Kiedis and Flea to regroup with guitarist John Frusciante and drummer Chad Smith for their next album, Mother's Milk (1989). Featuring the singles "Knock Me Down" and the Stevie Wonder-cover "Higher Ground", the album was propelled by Frusciante's guitar-playing, who altered the band's sound to a more melodic focus, and a wider range of musical styles. Blood Sugar Sex Magik (1991), their first album produced by Rick Rubin, featured lyrics containing sexual references and innuendos, along with some discussing breakups and drug addictions.

Live in Hyde Park (Red Hot Chili Peppers album)

Live in Hyde Park is the first live album released by American band Red Hot Chili Peppers, recorded over three record-breaking nights at Hyde Park, in London on June 19, 20 and 25, 2004 during the band's Roll on the Red Tour. These three concerts set records for the highest-grossing concerts at a single venue in history. This double album compiled from these three shows went straight to No. 1 in the UK and stayed there for two weeks, selling over 120,000 copies.Of the eight studio albums by the Red Hot Chili Peppers that were released prior to Live in Hyde Park, only three are actually represented in this album's set list – their fifth, Blood Sugar Sex Magik, seventh, Californication, and eighth, By the Way (the single "Fortune Faded", however, was featured solely on the band's Greatest Hits compilation). "Under the Bridge" and "Give It Away" were the only songs from Blood Sugar Sex Magik. The songs "Leverage of Space" and "Rolling Sly Stone" are exclusive to this collection. There are 4 songs that were also performed but are not included on this release, "I Like Dirt" and "My Lovely Man" were both performed on June 19, "Maybe" (The Chantels cover) on June 20 and "Mini-Epic (Kill for Your Country)" on June 25. "Mini-Epic" was originally planned for this release, but did not make it into the CD versions, probably due to delicate issues concerning the theme of the song. However, it was eventually officially released for the first time in 2015 on the Red Hot Chili Peppers' next live album, Cardiff, Wales: 6/23/04. Live in Hyde Park is now out of print.
