The Red Hot Chili Peppers were founded by singer Anthony Kiedis, guitarist Hillel Slovak, bassist Flea, and drummer Jack Irons as Tony Flow & the Miraculously Majestic Masters of Mayhem. The band quickly changed names to the Red Hot Chili Peppers and were courted by EMI. Conceived as a side project in the minds of Slovak and Irons, the group endured a few lineup changes. Cliff Martinez replaced Irons as the drummer and Jack Sherman replaced Slovak as the guitarist. Irons and Sherman would rejoin the band in 1986.
RHCP released four albums that went unappreciated by the nation at large, but had established the group as a cult favorite on the West Coast. Obviously, considering the induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Red Hot Chili Peppers would become a national and international success. Blood Sugar Sex Magik, the group's fifth album, became the first to breach the Top Ten on the Billboard 200. It would go on to sell over 15 million copies worldwide and go seven-time platinum in the United States. This album would be the first of six Top Ten albums and a run of platinum-certified albums.
Red Hot Chili Pepper tours became as noted for the group's antics as the music. "Under the Bridge" would become the first Top Ten hit and went platinum. The concert tickets sold very well as One Hot Minute and Californication cemented the group as a supergroup in the 1990s. "My Friends", "Scar Tissue", "Around the World", and "Otherside" remain in heavy radio rotation.
The 21st century has been kind to the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The albums By the Way and Stadium Arcadium topped the charts and going multiplatinum.
