SPIN September 2006

With every record, it seems as if the Peppers are an inch closer to transforming into the Eagles. But let it be understood that Henley, Frey, and Co. have never been known to tear the roof off the sucker. Kiedis, Flea, Frusciante, and Smith have never done anything less than that very thing every single show. Here is a band that burned from the moment they hit, bringing the unhinged fury of hardcore punk to thousands-strong audiences a good three years before grunge.

BEST MOMENT: Flea begins his slinky nitro to “Me and My Friends,” and there’s the anticipation that the crowd is about to go batshit in a millisecond.
