We All Know Who Holds The Title Of CALIFORNIA'S Band

The Twisted History of California covers genocide, immigration, forced sterilization, America's first real gold rush, and one of the state's most prolific serial killers (who is a whale). All incredibly important topics when dealing with history, but how are we going to do the Twisted History of California and NOT talk about The Red Hot Chili Peppers?????

This is Large's poll and with his experience as a radio DJ I respect his take on music, BUT I'm immediately bumping Metallica and Van Halen from the poll and putting in The Eagles and The Grateful Dead. Metallica and Van Halen are extremely successful bands, but neither of them got rich off a song called Hotel California.

2. Scar Tissue (1999) - Californication 


1. Under The Bridge (1991) - Love, Sugar, Sex, Magik: 

These are the Red Hot Chili Peppers top 5 songs according to Rolling Stone Magazine … 

  1. 'Under the Bridge'
  2. 'Soul to Squeeze' 
  3. 'Sir Psycho Sexy' 
  4. 'Californication'
  5. 'Suck My Kiss'

Only glaring problem with this list is Sir Psycho Sexy at #3. It's from their first album and part of their older sound, but not for me.
