We need some Chili Peppers. Our feet are cold

The Red Hot Chili Peppers — where art thou now?

The Red Hot Chili Peppers. Where art thou?

With four of their first albums laid out in front of the public in the 1980s, this band of alternative rock-rap-funkers went on to sell over 55 million albums, nine studio albums, two live albums, three compilation albums, one EP, two box sets, four video albums, forty-two singles, and thirty-five music videos.

Not to mention the shock factor, like the infamous wearing of the sock incident. The touring broke records. Their image started trends. Their lingo — lest we forget Californication — made urban dictionary legacy status.

It's Sunday, so I'll get to the point. Or actually reiterate my point.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers. Where art thou now?

Our feet are cold. But you can borrow a sock.
