Red Hot Chili Peppers

Red Hot Chili Peppers are an American funk rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1983. The group's musical style primarily consists of rock with an emphasis on funk, as well as elements from other genres such as punk rock and psychedelic rock. When played live, their music incorporates elements of jam band due to the improvised nature of many of their performances. Currently, the band consists of founding members vocalist/rhythm guitarist Anthony Kiedis and bassist Flea, longtime drummer Chad Smith, and former touring guitarist Josh Klinghoffer. Red Hot Chili Peppers are one of the best-selling bands of all time with over 80 million records sold worldwide, have been nominated for sixteen Grammy Awards, of which they have won six, and are the most successful band in alternative rock radio history, currently holding the records for most number-one singles (13), most cumulative weeks at number one (85) and most top-ten songs (25) on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart. In 2012, they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Although many fans interpret the lyrics of Don't Forget Me to be written from the point of view of drugs trying to tempt the singer back into abuse, Anthony Kiedis has stated that the song is actually about a universal love that cares for everyone no matter how bad their life may seem.

This instrumental is such a feel good song! It's by the guitarist from the RHCP. Give it a listen, you may dance a little!

Red Hot Chili Peppers live performances are better than the studio songs--I don't even know how.
