Passing through Brazil with John Frusciante for the first time since 2002, the Red Hot Chili Peppers has already performed in Rio de Janeiro (04/11), Brasília (07/11), São Paulo (10/11) and Curitiba (13/11), and there is still the show in Porto Alegre, which will take place this Thursday (16).
Between the Californian band’s long stay here, including many random tours, Anthony KiedisFrusciante, Flea It is Chad Smith saw the iconic album Californication (1999) stands out again on Spotify’s global chart this week.
As the Stream N’ Destroy newsletter reported, in the midst of RHCP’s successful tour, the version deluxe from the seventh studio album ranked fourth among Rock’s most listened to works, reaching number 118 in the global global ranking, which includes all musical genres.
Most listened to Rock albums in 2023
In front of Californicationonly the 20th anniversary edition of the Meteora (1st) and the bonus edition of Hybrid Theory (2nd), originally released by LinkinPark in 2003 and 2000, respectively, and the remastered edition of Nevermind (3rd), released by Nirvana for the first time in 1991.
Just behind RHCP on the list of most listened to on Spotify worldwide in the last week is Blurryface (5th), from Twenty One Pilotswhich reached position 136 in the overall ranking.
It’s difficult to say whether the Brazilian public was largely responsible for propelling the Peppers back into the Rock Top 5, but we can say that, taking numbers from just the United States, the band does not appear prominently.
In the American list, the names are similar in the Top 3: Nevermind occupies the top, with Hybrid Theory in 2nd and Meteora in 3rd. The novelty is due to the other two, with the mockingbird & THE CROWin HARDYin fourth place and Weezer (The Blue Album), of Weezerin 5th.

Red Hot Chili Peppers divided fans due to lack of hits at shows
We told you here that a lot of people have left the shows upset with the Chili Peppers, who excluded hits from their performances in Brasília and Rio de Janeiro to play some rarities, which really pleased their most ardent fans.
