EDITORS’ NOTES

Released to salute the band's Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction in 2012, this covers EP illuminates Red Hot Chili Peppers' myriad influences. "A Teenager In Love," popularized by Dion & The Belmonts, boasts tropical-island guitar picking and manicured doo-wop harmonies, while The Beach Boys' "I Get Around" hews toward reverent, carefree surf-punk. In contrast, the group's faithful stab at Iggy & The Stooges' "Search and Destroy" oozes with grimy garage-rock anarchy, and a live take on David Bowie's "Suffragette City" is all raucous glam-punk sleaze.
