The Red Hot Chili Peppers are one of the most commercially successful alternative rock bands. The band's Breakthrough album "Mothers Milk" was released in 1989, introducing them to the masses.
Their next album, "Blood, Sex Sugar Magic," was released in 1991 and featured the #1 hit "Give it Away Now." In 1992 they won a Grammy for "Best Hard Rock Performance With a Vocal." Their next single from the same album, "Under the Bridge," would reach #2 on the Billboard charts. And was one of the most played videos on MTV at that time.
In June 1999, after more than a year of production, the Red Hot Chili Peppers released "Californication," their seventh studio album. It sold over 16 million copies and remains their most successful album to date.
The Red Hot Chilli Peppers have spanned generations. So it is cool to hear that your parent's favorite album might be "Mothers Milk," and your kid's favorite one might be "Californication."
One of the main reasons the band has remained so successful is that they have constantly evolved their sound, which makes the band relevant to this day, as so many other bands from that era have not. The band is still releasing records and has kept its fan base growing.
It is easy to read about a band and tell facts, but I can tell you from personal experience, and yes, I will date myself.
"Blood Sex Sugar Magic" was released in 1991, when I was 12 years old and still in Junior High School. "Californication" was released in 1999. When that album was released, I was in College, so I personally lived through The band's evolution. Both albums significantly impacted my life at two different but exciting times.
Although I am sharing my story. Music evokes memories, and I can remember many meaningful memories of both. I'm sure many fans have similar stories.
