We’ve got to make it rain somehow

By sticking up for Red Hot Chili Peppers, I feel a bit like one of those bloggers who still claims that Incubus is good. But really, when I was in high school, this band was life-changing. My life can be neatly divided into pre-Californication and post-Californication eras. It’s hard to convey just how much the Chili Peppers meant to me back when I was fifteen.

But, y’know, times change. I reviewed the newly-released I’m with You for Exclaim! and, well, you can go there to read my somewhat mixed response. But still, I have a lot of fondness for the band, which I hope comes across in the massive Timeline I wrote.

Below is the single “The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie,” which is probably the closest the new album comes to matching the ultra-catchy hooks of the band’s best work.
