Kick Out the Jams: The Red Hot Chili Peppers Edition

rhcpSince middle school I’ve been a fan of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Not totally sure if it started with “Give It Away” or before that, but it was definitely around that time. I gobbled up their records and plastered their logo over every surface I could.

I remember them playing Woodstock ’94 dressed as giant light bulbs, the weirdness of the Dave Navarro era, the joy of the John Frusciante era 2.0 and will never be able to let go of how cool the song “Blood, Sugar, Sex, Magik” sounds.

And while I haven’t embraced their most recent album, I’m With You, I still consider myself a pretty big fan of the band.

So much of a fan, I thought I needed a playlist of my favorite Chili Pepper songs.
