CSPC: Red Hot Chili Peppers Popularity Analysis

Red Hot Chili Peppers Painting Anthony Kiedis

Digital Singles Sales – Part 1

As a reminder, the weighting is done with a 10 to 1,5 ratio between one album and one digital single.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers (1984) – 9,000 equivalent albums

All tracks – 60,000

Freaky Styley (1985) – 11,000 equivalent albums

All tracks – 70,000

The Uplift Mofo Party Plan (1987) – 12,000 equivalent albums

All tracks – 80,000

Mother’s Milk (1989) – 63,000 equivalent albums

Higher Ground – 250,000
Remaining tracks – 170,000

As we can easily notice through their YouTube or Spotify streams, all songs from the band from the 80s are forgotten minus Higher Ground. Well, rather than forgotten, they have never been known in first place, which explains their atrocious digital sales.
