Product Description

Amazon.com

An overview of the Red Hot Chili Peppers' formative 1984 to 1989 stint with EMI Records, What Hits? contains plenty of hits, including their first truly huge success, "Under the Bridge," from their 1991 debut on Warner Bros., Blood Sugar Sex Magic. Other highlights here, including 1990's "Show Me Your Soul" (which proves the band learned plenty from working with George Clinton on 1985's Freaky Styley), their superb cover of Stevie Wonder's "Higher Ground," and the feel-good funk of "Behind the Sun," show the Peppers paved the way for a school of alt bands who melded funk with rock riffs. There are plenty other less-celebrated moments from the Peppers' early days that shine on their own, and only a few self-indulgent clunkers (what drove them to such a dismal performance of Jimi Hendrix's "Fire"?). This collection will suffice for the casual fan who needs a quick intro to the Peppers' history. --Lorry Fleming

My favorite tracks are "True Men Don't Kill Coyotes", "Jungle Man", "Fight Like A Brave", "Knock Me Down" and definitely the famous "Under The Bridge".

A lot of this stuff isnt what most people think of when they think of RHCP.

What Hits!? (with it's nicely sarcastic title) is next to WB's Greatest Hits CD, the second best RHCP contemplation album. Spanning from 1984 to 1991, this features some of the Chili's best fan-favorite songs, incompasing everything from the funk/rock/rap/sex/mayhem of the 1980's to the sentimental classic "Under the Bridge". So without further ado, the review.

1. Higher Ground: An awesome tribute to Stevie Wonder, featured on the 1989 album "Mother's Milk". Very funky and energetic, a song to headbang to.

2. Fight Like a Brave: From the 1987 album "Uplift Mofo Party Plan", this is a rip-roaring song to raise your fist in the air to and chant "Fight like a brave! Don't be a slave!"

3. Behind the Sun: A delightfully playful (and psychadelic) acid-rock song, this tale of talking dolphins is a truly feel-good tune. From Uplift Mofo.

4. Me and My Friends: This song from Uplift Mofo is a tribute to the friendship of the Chili Peppers. Features some rapid-fire raps and a chorus to chant to, this is a great tune to dance like a freak to.

5. Backwoods: This tribute to the origins of rock music is one kick-*** jam! Featuring a rocking chorus and some funktacular (allow me to invent a word) rapping, make this a song a powerhouse of pure energy.

6. True Men Don't Kill Coyotes: From the Chili Peppers 1984 debut, this hard rockin' song has a certain quality to it unlike other RHCP songs; a rough, gritty garage-band feel. Another great 'chant to the chorus song'.

7. Fire: A minute-and-a-half of pure, unadulterated, musical insanity. Featured on Mother's Milk, but also a live favorite.

8. Get Up and Jump: One of the absolute best party songs, ever.

To me, this is hands down their best cd. Besides being 18 tracks, it's full of the funkiest funk from their first four funky albums. This includes the early hits "True Men Don't Kill Coyotes", "Fight Like A Brave", "Behind The Sun", and the covers of "Fire" and "Higher Ground". Also "Under The Bridge" was thrown on for all the newcomers at the time. My personal favorites are "Me & My Friends" and "The Brothers Cup". If I could add anything, I'd have it be "Why Don't You Love Me", "Good Time Boys", and the whole "Uplift Mofo Party Plan" album. That rocks. Overall though, this is pure perfect 80's Peppers. I'd get this disc before their new "Greatest Hits" collection.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Whyonnas Big Brown Beaver on October 26, 2005
Format: Audio CD
This album is a comilation of the most popular older Red Hot Chili Peppers songs, I must say I really enjoy old RHCP, new RHCP is great, no doubt, but old RHCP is a lot louder, more fun, more my style of music. Hillel Slovak rocks on guitar, it really is a shame he died before the band became a major sucess, and Flea is just slapping the crap out of his bass more so than on any new RHCP record, Anthony Kiedis really diverts his voice, he never sounds the same on one song, original drummer Jack Irons is admittedly no Chad Smith, but he's good enough. Best songs are "Fight Like A Brave", "Backwoods", "True Men Don't Kill Coyotes", "The Brothers Cup", and of course "Under The Bridge", warning to new RHCP fans, you will be shocked when you here this album, but you will love it, GET IT!

The title sums this CD up personally. It's prefectly sarcastic. This is one great CD. I love the Red Hot Chili Peppers. There is not a song on here or any RHCP CD that I wouldn't listen to. This has a lot of my favorites. I like these even more so than some of their later work. My favorites are: Behind The Sun, me & My Friends, Backwods, Knock Me Down, Under The Bridge, Taste The Pain, Catholic School Girls Rule, and Johnny, Kick A Hole In The Sky. This CD has no bad songs. There's a lot of people who don't like the Warner Bros. Greatest Hits because they left off some classics (Knock Me Down, Around The World) but a real fan will love this CD as well as the 2003 Greatest Hits as a good listen, and have all the studio albums anyway. It's a great way to hear so many good songs without switching CD's.

This is a great Cd. Flea does a great job perticularly on The Brothers Cup and Anthony's lyrics are new and fresh and entertaining through each song. Higher Ground, Show Me your Soul, Catholic School Girls Rule, True Men Don't Kill Coyotes and Under The Bridge along with the other songs make the CD awsome. BUT WHY IS FIRE ON THE CD? Now I love Hendrix and Fire is a great song but RHCP didn't do a very good job with it. The guitare is not the problem infact it is very good. The problem was Kiedis, his voice and mood for the song just doesn't do anything for it. In my opinion it ruined the song. That is why the CD gets a 4. Anyway, let me stop before i complietly dis Kiedis. Basicly the Cd is a must have so get it.

This is a CD of one of the greatest rock bands' stuff from the 80's. As you may know, this consists of songs from their first four albums, along with "Under The Bridge" from "Blood Sugar Sex Magik" and "Show Me Your Soul" from the Pretty Woman soundtrack. My favorite tracks are "True Men Don't Kill Coyotes", "Jungle Man", "Fight Like A Brave", "Knock Me Down" and definitely the famous "Under The Bridge". This band still has talent today, but their stuff from the 80's is more of a standout for me. If you only own the band's albums from "Blood Sugar Sex Magik" and so forth, you don't know what you're missing.
