RHCP discography Red Hot Chili Peppers

 

RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS

Poor ol’ Peppers. They’ve released single after single in the UK but scored nary a winner. Such has been their lack of success chartwise that when EMI recently stuck out the obligatory ‘Best Of’ in the wake of the band’s defection to Warner Bros, they were forced to truthfully title it ‘What Hits?’ Such a sad, sad story. All together now— ahhhhhh!
