I’m being honest here, I know they were probably having an off day, but they are the worst band I’ve ever seen on that scale. Incredibly unprofessional.

Can you tell I’m fed up of teenage music threads on our ‘consciousness-expanding’ board?

But since you’re asking, ‘They’re Red Hot’

Find them really overrated. Seen them live and they were sub-par. Although I am a massive John Frusciante fan. Maybe part of the added reason I got over them is that everyone in my high school year was obsessed with them to the point of stupidity. I also found Anthony Kiedis’s book to be pretty self-absorbed and boring. In saying that, they do have some really good/catchy songs.

I remember my first love and I telling each other we were in love for the first time while Save The Population was playing haha. It’s funny how you remember things like that almost 9 years later!

Appreciate the imput guys! Just posted this because music is my passion… And in my opinion is directly linked to higher consciousness.

Too many to choose from.
But since I had it tattooed on me: Scar Tissue.

A close second is Dosed.

@staylucky I absolutely love Frusc and the level of energy he puts into his music. I’ve used some of his stuff to meditate to and it works so well.

I saw them live this past summer and it was the best musical experience I’ve ever had. I couldn’t say I have one favorite song, as all the songs live were incredible.

My favorite song is “By The Way”. Some time ago I practiced the hell out of it on my bass. It so much fun, although I never quite got it to work flawlessly.

Soul to squeeze is probably my favorite. Because of this lyric primarily

“Today love smiled on me.
It took away my pain said please
I’ll let your ride be free
You gotta let it be oh yeah”

@jordanzito, If music is your passion, stop worshipping and start writing!

This isn’t just about music snobbery for me, it’s about putting these artists on ridiculous pedestals. They’re just goddamn people, and its this hero worship that leads to all egotistical rappers and all the addictions these musicians inevitably get. And more importantly, noone ever brought anything to the world by being the number one fan of anything.

@nickc2007 By no means am I putting on them on a pedestal, or do I feel the need to be the “number one fan” Like I said, it’s about the music they create… and how I feel a special connection to the sound they produce. It’s a personal experience to me. And I do write and play music!:)

@nickc2007, “If music is your passion, stop worshipping and start writing!”

I’m pretty passionate about music too, I’ve got a pretty extensive collection spanning multiple genres, and love the feeling of discovering a song that I can replay 10 times in a row without getting sick of it. And I agree that being a fan is only so much fun….many times I’ve stopped enjoying myself at the concert because I know that it’s only the band that’s experiencing anything, for the audience it’s just another distraction from the daily grind. Point is, I’d LOVE to stop worshipping and start writing…..I’m bored of the worshipping part. But I’m not sure how to begin writing? I’ve struggled with this for a while, and haven’t really experienced much to write about. AND i’m old, AND i’m about to start working which means I’m going to experience a whole lot of nothing. How does one begin writing, especially in this state?

Mother’s Milk was a beautiful album. Extra tracks like Brandy and Bunker Hill were always a treat.

They rocked in the 90’s with their alternative direction, but I wish they had kept developing upon their funky roots. That was their specialty.

@ojai, ehh, takem or leavem. They are good, I can get into them now and then, but usually only on shuffle nowadays. I also like Road trippin, my friends, pea and breaking the girl. It does not bother me to listen to others but I would enjoy listening to those ones.

@ojai, agree. That song has so many lines that you can own and love.
What I find impressive about RHCP is their ability to craft lyrics in a way that it makes sense as a whole and also individual lines.

…Though I didn’t like I’m with you as much as I did the other records.
