The Rain Dance Maggie release their new album Unlimited Love after a wait of so many years. They made news all over the globe when they announced they will be going on a tour to promote their latest album. Seeing that band will hit its 40th year in 202* many begin to wonder what are the top 10 songs from Red Hot Chili Peppers. And it might be one of the difficult questions one can ask about the band. Why is that? For a band, it’s easy to have a few great singles and stand above the rest. But therein lies the problem. It assumes that the band does not have too many great songs under their belt. This is exactly the case with Snow(Hey oh) composers’ band. Usually, an artist has a few hits but Red hot Chili Peppers have a few misses.
One of the things that bring credibility to artists is their consistent commitment. The more they work and share their art and on time, the more likely they are to become popular. Though there are outliers, it is the safest and best way to rise to fame once you are on the road. Red Hot Chili Peppers fall into this category, they give out great singles and are consistent with their work. Which has led to a debate among fans as a consequence. A band that is almost forty years old and has over half-hundred hits, how can you say which one qualifies for the top 10 songs of Red Hot Chili Peppers? The answer is simple, you stress over it until you pull your hair and go bald! No really, making such a list isn’t easy by any means but we have done our best on it.
