2 Jun 2014, 00:38 by maplejetLiking a band is one thing...but if you want similar artists, will you be able to find some?
I've decided to investigate several bands/artists myself and determine whether what last.fm gives as similar artists work out or are off. Today, it's the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers are classified as mainly alternative rock...though that genre is broad. Styles explored by the band include funk rock, pop rock, funk (specifically freaky styley, funk metal (earlier albums), and sometimes, rap rock (aka, rap-like vocals) and psychedelia influences, but rarely.
So, let's see what last.fm considers similar. I have filtered out the first 50 bands/artists that showed up as similar on 6/1/2014. And I made comments under each of the bands/artists based on what I know.
--Well, he's the guitarist of RHCP...but I don't think his music is similar to RHCP.
John Frusciante and Josh Klinghoffer
--Well, more RHCP side-projects. But once again, I have no idea if they are similar

19 Apr 2014, 02:03 by pogoshrooms1 // What was the first song you heard by 22 (Foals)?
'Cassius', 'Miami' or 'Spanish Sinatra', I think, it was quite a few years ago now
2 // How did you get into 31 (Bruce Springsteen)?
My mum is a big fan, and has been since she was 15 or so, so I heard him a lot while I was growing up, then I took her to see him as a Mother's Day present last year, and it listened to him a lot around that time.
3 // What is your favorite lyric by 29 (Placebo)?
I don't know, I liked the lyrics to 'Every You Every Me' when I was 14 or so but I'm quite a lot different to what I was then.
4 // What is your favorite album by 47 (Owiny Sigoma Band)?
Their second album Power Punch is great, relaxing and reminds me a lot and in a very good way of when they supported the two Atoms for Peace shows I was lucky enough to see in London last summer.
5 // How many albums by 9 (System of a Down) do you own?
All five studio albums.
6 // What is your favorite song by 50 (Jimi Hendrix)?
