    Faith No More could release an album with just a recording of Patton shitting in a bottle of orange juice and it would still be better than anything RHCP ever did. Most overrated band in existence.. rip off, don't make me laugh.

    Faith No More doesn't sound anything like RHCP, it really doesn't.
