RHCP Asterisk in Kerrang! Greatest Rock Logos

UK rock radio station Kerrang! recently held a competition to find the 50 most iconic rock logos and the results were posted a couple of days ago (May 6th, 2011). The  Red Hot Chili Peppers’ asterisk (with ‘Red Hot Chili Peppers’  written in a circular legend around it) came in at number 6!

6. Red Hot Chili Peppers- In his autobiography Scar Tissue, Anthony Kiedis admits there’s no concept behind the RHCP logo- he just drew it on a piece of paper when the label asked him for one. Fans have speculated that it resembles a certain orifice after one too many chillie [sic]

The Top 10 Greatest Rock Logos:

1. Rolling Stones (tongue)

2. Nirvana (smiley face)

3. Metallica (name logo)

4. The Who (target/air force emblem)

8. Queen (zodiac creatures crest)

9. Led Zeppelin (Icarus)

About Squitherwitch

I've been a RHCP fan ever since I heard Under The Bridge way back in the mists of time. I brought BSSM and then their other albums but RHCP were just another band I listened to (I was a massive GNR fan at the time) but that changed once I heard Californication! I've been involved with the online RHCP scene since 2006, getting more heavily involved as time passed, and eventually the time was right to set up my own website dedicated to the band and thus, TheChiliSource was born. Since then I've also set up AnthonyKiedis.net along with various Twitter, Facebook & Tumblr pages connected to my websites and RHCP.
