Everybody knows the Red Hot Chili Peppers, but what people seem to forget is that they are funksters at core. With albums such as Freaky Styley, Uplift Mofo Party Plan and the all-time classic Blood Sugar Sex Magik the late 80s early 90s are the funk peak in the band’s lifespan  The band always had message that’s being blurred by new (softer/gentler) releases: Peace, love, music, narcotics, fuck you, random bullshit, socks on cocks, more narcotics, more sex and dirty dirty FUNK!
Here’s 10 funky-to-the-core songs, which define what the Red Hot Chili Peppers are truly about (Lots of these songs are live performances, because that’s where the Chili Peppers are most good at.. funking the shit out of a crowd):
