Red Hot Chili Peppers Unleashes Catalog on Rdio

Red Hot Chili Peppers

From classics like Blood Sugar Sex Magik to more recent releases like Stadium Arcadium to forever favourites like Californication and One Hot Minute, there’s now plenty of Red Hot Chili Peppers action on Rdio to spice up your ears to whatever level of heat you desire. The L.A.-bred band is celebrating its 30-year anniversary this year with the verve and effervescence of musicians much younger and greener — evidence that RHCP shows no signs of slowing down. Whether you start at the beginning or work backwards from the newest releases, the catalog is sure to offer insights, surprises, and old favourites.

We’re giving you a quick taste of the Chili Peppers with our RHCP Retrospective playlist — rock on below.
