August 10 marked the 30th anniversary of the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ first album, “Red Hot Chili Peppers.” The band has created album after album and has performed concert after concert since then and they have continued with the same style of music as they first performed in 1984. The band seems to have stood the test of time and are still continuing to gain popularity.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers’ first album lays a good foundation for the band’s long career. The album is upbeat and wild just like the band itself. Each song on the album is some variation of a similar rhythm, which all the tracks share.  For example, “Mommy, Where’s Daddy?” has a blues type sound to it with saxophone and strong bass. “True Men Don’t Kill Coyotes” is a more funk rock type sound.
My favorite song on the album is “True Men Don’t Kill Coyotes.” The track is very upbeat and is a great representation of the album as whole. The funk rock theme, which the Red Hot Chili Peppers has influenced, is seen clearly in the track.
Overall, I really enjoyed the album. It is a strong representation of the band, and it is very upbeat. If you are trying to study or do homework, I would not listen to the album. Otherwise, you have no reason not to. Even if you are not a fan of the style of the music, it is a strong representation of music and life in the 80s.
