With over 80 million records sold worldwide, American funk-rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers is one of the best-selling bands of all time. Since the release of their eponymous debut album in 1984, the band has earned 16 Grammy Award nominations and 6 wins, as well as holding records for most number one singles (13), most cumulative weeks at number one (85) and most top-ten songs (25) on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart. The band's 1991 album Blood, Sugar, Sex, Magick catapulted them to stardom, producing smash hit singles “Give It Away,” “Under the Bridge”, “Breaking the Girl” and “Suck My Kiss.” The Red Hot Chili Peppers' current line-up consists of founding members Anthony Kiedis (vocals) and Flea (bass), longtime drummer Chad Smith; and guitarist Josh Klinghoffer, who joined in late-2009, replacing John Frusciante. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012. The band released their eleventh studio album, The Getaway, on June 17, 2016.
