84 Red Hot Chili Peppers Red Hot Chili Peppers The Red Hot Chili Peppers is a Californian funk-rock and alternative rock band, that was founded in 1983. more.

They are an amazing band, but the only reason that they are so good is because they sold out. Their 80's albums were pure punk, because that was popular at the time. Then in 1991 when grunge became popular, they released Blood Sugar Sex Magik, a grunge album. Then, in 1995, music was going in a more alternative direction, so they released One Hot Minute, which was somewhere along the lines of grunge and alternative. Then, in 1999, they released Californication, when alternative became dominant, and it was an alternative album. Alternative has been popular for a while now, and it still was when they released albums in 2002, 2006, and 2011. Alternative still is rather popular, but it has lost its fame to pop. I'm afraid that this band is now going to make a pop album. Even though following the trend makes them sellouts, if they didn't, they would not be as good as they are today. Thank you Red Hot Chili Peppers for selling out. - Songsta41
