Red Hot Chili Peppers have always been one of my favourite bands, and I'm going to see them live on August 29th.
Soooo, I wanted to hear your opinions!
My favourite album is Californication, and ironically, my favourite song is Californication.
I love the Chili Peppers, they're my third favourite band. I can't choose a favourite album really, as much as I like most of their songs, there are some songs i just always skip on every album. That being said, I prefer Stadium Arcadium, Californication, By The Way and I'm With You. If their live shows are anything like Slane Castle, then I'll enjoy watching them next year

 Line Up
I'm With You is kinda meh. Not to say I'm a Frusciante fanboy (One Hot Minute with Navarro was ace), but the band really feels lacking with Josh on lead.
Favorite album is By The Way.
Haven't really liked them much since Californication, but love their old stuff
I saw them live quite some time ago and they were great. Although I think the Foo Fighters who were opening stole the show.
I can see why everyone says the Foo Fighters put on a better show, but that's just because their stuff is more tailored toward the concert setting. Nothing touches the good ol' RHCP jam session though. Never play the same thing the same way twice.
I'm With You had a few highlights for me. But I know what you mean about RHCP live
I just love this performance
When Frusciante was in the band I used to say RHCP were Jesus, Wayne Rooney, Will Ferrell and Arj Barker. But now with Klinghoffer, I'm just so lost.. haha
I watched their World Stage performance and a bunch of concerts and I can honestly say I love how they jam between songs, or use them as outros.
Saw them when they were touring for Stadium Arcadium. Good shit.
Did somebody order some cheese?

Awesome. Some of the best songs ever made.
I still haven't gotten myself to listen to I'm With You yet.
I like a few of their songs. They have one of my favorite concert stories. At woodstock 99' (I know, stay with me) they came on and during their set people started lighting Bon fires. So they came off for a bit and when they came back on they played "Fire" by jimi hendrix because his sister asked them to do it before hand. So theres bon fires going on in the crowd and there just fucking rockin the song. Flea's doing naked cartwheels n shit. It's great

The Red Hot Chili Peppers are the shit!
Blood Sugar Sex Magik is by far their best album, although, I do love all their albums. There just happens to be no bad songs on BSSM. John Frusciante is a musical genius. Fact. Give Josh time, after all, he is a JF protégé.
Anyways, I'm going to see them in August!
I hated the Chili Peppers for a long, long time. A friend of mine played "Readymade" for me, and I decided I was an idiot for ever hating them. I went through his collection (he owns literally everything they've ever released, including singles – it's a ridiculous collection) and listened to them from "start to finish," and they're one of my favorite bands now.
So... I'll keep searching for a place called home:
I'll rip my roots from this earth into the unknown.
Is it for the dreams I chased or the ones I caught?
This mystery, this misery is killing me.
So, now, I'll leave behind a murder scene.
My life isn't real; it's just a silhouette—
and, when the sun goes down, I won't exist.
I love them on stage! They're like a bunch of psychos playing shirtless... When Kiedis sings Give It Away it's freaking awesome.
The band was strongest on Californication and By the Way. I wasn't a huge fan of their most recent effort, and Stadium Arcadium was decent. I'm not the biggest fan of their older stuff.
