It’s been a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame career for Red Hot Chili Peppers, and we’re counting down the Top 10 Red Hot Chili Peppers Songs.
To help narrow things down, we’re keeping it to original tracks, which knocks out their splendid covers of “Higher Ground” and “Love Rollercoaster,” but there’s 10 studio albums to sort out, so we’re not even close on running short of choices. From their early days as a college rock/party band through their present day reign as chart-topping hitmakers, singer Anthony Kiedis and bassist extraordinaire Flea have kept the band’s spirit lively and sound extra funky.
Red Hot Chili Peppers have been joined on their mission by a phenomenal roll call of guitarists over the decades, including Hillel Slovak, Jack Sherman, DeWayne McKnight, John Frusciante, Arik Marshall, Jesse Tobias, Dave Navarro and Josh Klinghoffer. Drummers Jack Irons, Cliff Martinez, D.H. Peligro, and Chad Smith have all been along for the ride, as well.
Let’s take you to the songs you love, take you all the way, and count down the Top 10 Red Hot Chili Peppers Songs.
