One more brick for the wall -

Every live vocal ad lib ever has been a train wreck.

Of course not; that would be ridiculous.

Regardless, I did a double-take the first couple of times I heard that song way back when.

I can't believe I used to have his '94 Rolling Stone cover taped on my bedroom wall as a teen.
You guys don't mind that I crash your little sausage party, right?

I've only owned:
Californication, Stadium Arcadium and By the Way
I like Frusciante's guitar playing and flea on bass.

Mad haters on here... I'm guessing it was a snowball effect.

Never understood the appeal of this band or why they keep going; when there are tons of superior funk albums from the seventies. Crap.

Can't help thinking this band is some litmus test for clinical tonedeafness.

They're a control group for identifying a complete lack of musical taste.

I wonder if RHCP know that even the Canadian national public broadcaster makes fun of them?

I don't think RHCP is great, I don't even think they are that good, but Jesus Christ, the hate is unreal. I know some fine people in real life who have some decent tastes who also like them, and that is fine with me. I would never buy an album from this band, I have little interest in doing so. But honestly, if I heard it on the radio I wouldn't change the station.

Abstaining from voting. I like some of their stuff, I hate to say. I feel like that's a bigger death sentence here than saying I liked Linkin Park, but I'm saying it now.

^trying not to sound like a dick here* but really, it's OK at your age to think RHCP are alright while not getting, say, the Minutemen. the fact that you're even considering these things already puts you ahead of most people. so don't worry so much, nobody here's gonna judge you. and even if they did, life's too short to worry. now if 10 years from now you still like the same things, then maybe you should start to wonder if something's wrong.

*not really trying :(

Among the 10 worst rock bands to have ever existed I would reckon. Utterly devoid of any potential redeeming quality with a load of gross bullshit to top everything off, meanwhile Kiedis seems like a real asshole and a classic Freudian case.

CRAPOLA with the nearest waffle... just dead.

Not a waffle because he adds absolutely nothing good to the band itself but Frusciante doesn't seem like a horrid musician.

Thanks for posting this.

Also, I had no knowledge of this fantastic quote:

Maybe it is hypocrisy because I'm sure there's lots of lurid misogynistic stories about bands we do favor like such as the shark episode? Regardless, I put this band into the sonic territory of limp biscuit, linkin park, korn, kid rock etc. It really reminds me of top 40 country. It's formulaic to the core. They all write music for sporting events. Hey now you are an allstar. blecchhh.

+1

Frusciante's guitar on BSSM and Mother's Milk still holds up. Too bad Kiedis sings on those albums.

When I visited a German cousin in Berlin, one of the few books he had in English was Scar Tissue. i was unnerved, to say nothing more of it.
Kerouacian as fuck.

I'm going with Crap overall, b/c I feel their best work is behind them and they should've broken up a while back. They're just boring now.

I admit I own BSSM and Californication, but I rarely listen to them. I will say, though, that the deeper cuts on both albums are good.

- "I broke it, remember? I threw it against the wall, and it like, shattered."
