Red Hot Chili Peppers - Blood Sugar Sex Magik | Discogs
In , the Red Hot Chili Peppers were a long shot to make it to the 21st century. They were a party band back then—too funky for hair metal, too cock-obsessed for college rock. They wrote songs about their dicks ; they then stretched cotton socks over those same dicks and jumped around on stage without fear of gravity. In the music world, they were definitely not a big deal. And then, the world changed. But it also set the tone for a decade more permissive of what a popular rock band could sound and look like, in ways that would reverberate far away from grunge or flannel obsessives.
