Red Hot Chili Peppers are a widely known band with many hits and are very popular in the mainstream media and music scene. They are the stereotypical vintage rock band that have generated a huge fan base that is worthy of them being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Yes, Red Hot Chili Peppers should be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Red Hot Chili Peppers are a successful band and should be put in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to be remembered by future generations. Regardless, it should not be a big deal if someone placed in the Rock and Roll hall of Fame is debatable.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers have had a very successful career and they have had at least seven of their albums go platinum, with the first being "Mother's Milk" in 1989 and the most recent being "I'm With You" in 2011. They have produced high-quality, popular albums for over a decade and a half and have a large fan base that would support their admittance into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Although the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Anthony Kiedis continue to sound better with each album and outperform themselves, they should not be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame should be reserved for legends and the Chili Peppers have not reached that status. RHCP is not on the same level as the other Hall of Fame inductees.
