Anthony Kiedis and Flea have been at it for a LONG time. The founding members of the Red Hot Chili Peppers are celebrating a huge milestone - 35 years since the band released The Red Hot Chili Peppers, their debut studio album.

 

The album may not have entered the Billboard 200, but it did recieve a ton of college airplay and even grabbed the attention on MTV. Here's a peek back at their first television appearance, performing "Get Up And Jump" back in 1984 when the guys were in their early 20s!

 

The album also spawned a music video for "True Men Don't Kill Coyotes".

 

Above all else, the self-titled album helped them build their fanbase, and when you fast forward to today, RCHP have been recognized as pioneers in blending the genres of funk, rap and rock. 

 

Happy 35th to The Red Hot Chili Peppers, and we look forward to new music in the near future!

 

Happy Rocking,
