Edit: Yes I know Arcadium.

Most underrated billboard #1, Grammy winning album.

I see your hot take and raise you a few more degrees: “Flea is a good bass player.”

u/NeitherOfEither Aug 17 '22

Yeah, I'll take this one step further: he's probably above average.

u/skaterscott Aug 17 '22

Such a hot take.

u/Limjucas328 Aug 17 '22

So hot. Ouch

u/sportsace22 Aug 17 '22

I’ve got another - Michael Jordan was good at basketball. Phew, good to get that off my chest

u/Daveyj343 Aug 17 '22

I remember an icy morning in December, standing outside deicing my car with 3-4 layers on, that was hotter than this take is

u/[deleted] Aug 17 '22

Not exactly a hot take lol. In all seriousness though, it really is creeping up to be my favorite. Packed with amazing songs showcasing all members, and the live performances during this era were peak Chili Peppers.

u/oreogod Aug 17 '22

Do you mean quadruple album?

u/AxMan413 Aug 17 '22

Ha by Flea’s standards yeah

u/baconandgregz Aug 17 '22

Not this again lol

u/Candy_Badger Aug 17 '22

It is my favorite album! The best album ever!

u/thetrashpanda2020 Aug 17 '22

Was Grammy-nominated for Album of the Year… yup, a red hot take

6

u/Tatertotjam Aug 17 '22

Hot take? It’s a based take? I’ve only seen a couple people say it’s a bad album, and every time they always say

“oH mA GaWD iT HAs tOO mANY SoNgS!”

u/SteveB10001 Aug 17 '22

controversial opinion around this sub

u/shitboxfesty Aug 17 '22

Yes. Yes it is.

u/KennyKatsu Sir Psycho Sexy Aug 17 '22

You're not allowed to have that opinion. Gather around the pitchforks. Let's get him fellas!

u/Buhos_En_Pantelones Aug 17 '22

Here's a hot take for you: If I were to rank all the songs on SA, the singles (Dani Cali, Snow, Tell Me Baby) would be somewhere in the bottom.

I do like 'Desecration Smile' though.

5

u/Berti8814 Aug 17 '22

I mean, not really a hot take

4

u/JSA1985bna Aug 17 '22

Yes! Some of my fave less known songs are from this album: She Looks to Me & Wetsand.

u/trollman9 Aug 17 '22

yeah, just listened to the gem dani california - why isnt anyone talking about this???

u/mattymil Aug 17 '22

Agreed, there are so many on this that are so good. Wet Sand, torture me…

u/Sean4123 Aug 17 '22

I think it’s their best album

u/creative-inteligence Aug 17 '22

It's their best album

u/rayza420 Aug 17 '22

close second to bssm imo

2

u/ryanino Aug 17 '22

Wow so bold of you

2

u/flea61 Aug 17 '22

Something something controversial

Something something brave

2

u/yellowldbetter Aug 17 '22

This take is as hot as antartica

2

u/the_mair Aug 17 '22

I can’t wait to show you guys my favorite underground RHCP song, “Under the Bridge”.

1

u/Rough-Leg-4702 Aug 17 '22

I think it's the best album they made. BSSM a close second.

1

u/todoredhot Aug 17 '22

Hot take?

C'mon bro, hot take is my opinion. Honestly (no jokes) I don't enjoy this album and 16 years after, I barely listen 8/10 songs. I prefer OHM and the whole Josh era (no need to downvote, just my opinion)

1

u/Camango17 Aug 17 '22

Not really a hot take… you’ve had since 2006 to reach that conclusion…

1

u/SK4304 Aug 17 '22

I prefer stadiam arcadium

1

u/mattymil Aug 17 '22

Ha ha ha. Let me correct that

1

u/HoldenCaulfield8 Aug 17 '22

Roll on the new single...

1

u/RummHammm1 Aug 17 '22

I also think the near universally loved album is great (controversially)

u/_phily_d Aug 17 '22

Stone cold.

u/jadedmonk Aug 17 '22

I hope you’re joking lol

u/WakinyanDAWG Aug 17 '22

I expected a shit post tag under this lol

u/bonelesschickenwingz Aug 17 '22

They cooking you in the comments my boy

1

u/LOLbearsmile08 To Finger Paint Is Not a Sin 😏 Aug 17 '22

If I may hit you with an even hotter take, Blood Sugar Sex Magik is hands down their greatest piece of work… please please, put the pitchforks down!

u/96mint Aug 17 '22

Do people actually think Stadium Arcadium didn’t do well? Never have I ever seen this opinion before browsing this sub. It has, arguably, some of their most successful songs in terms of popularity.

The biggest criticism I often hear about it is that it is “too long”. Since when is a wide variety of songs a bad thing?

1

u/Acceptable_Foot7830 Aug 17 '22

Not even close to a hot take

1

u/Coconutcoconut5 Aug 17 '22

Here I was thinking it was their best album 🫢

1

u/Betov8 Aug 17 '22

Hot take hot take hot take hot take HOT take HOT TAKE!!!

u/ChoclateyShatner Aug 17 '22

That Hansels so hot right now

1

u/louisvillebandit Aug 17 '22

It’s not a hot take when everyone agrees, nerd.

1

u/baconandgregz Aug 17 '22

Actual hot take: Mars (disc 2) is better than Jupiter (disc 1)

1

u/Steelersgoat Aug 18 '22

One of my favorites. Title track is an A+

1

u/Vast_Boysenberry_727 Aug 18 '22

Great album? You got to be f****** kidding me. Decent album, especially for the peppers, okay. In referring to a recent comment, Fleas' a damn good bass player. Just my two cents worth.

1

u/[deleted] Aug 18 '22

Take so hot my phone overheated.

-1

u/Potts77 Aug 17 '22

It might rank as the best album, with the worst album cover.

u/Internal_Vanilla_467 Aug 17 '22

Bro. This take is so hot I need a cup of tea and a blanket
