About this album

Stadium Arcadium is the ninth studio album by alternative rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers, released on May 9, 2006 via Warner Bros. Records. It sold 442,000 copies in the U.S. in the first week and debuted at number one on the Billboard 200. The album spawned five hit singles: “Dani California”, “Snow ((Hey Oh))”, “Desecration Smile”, “Hump De Bump”, and “Tell Me Baby”. According to the band’s frontman Anthony Kiedis, Stadium Arcadium was originally scheduled to be a trilogy of albums each released six months apart, but was eventually condensed into a double album.

Stadium Arcadium was critically praised for integrating musical styles from several aspects of the band’s career. The album gained the band seven Grammy Award nominations in 2007 including an award for Best Rock Album. It was the most nominations that the band had garnered in their 25-year career. Kiedis attributed the album’s success to less abrasive dynamics within the band, saying that the band’s “chemistry when it comes to writing is better than ever. There was always a struggle to dominate lyrically. But we are now confident enough in who we are, so everybody feels more comfortable contributing more and more valuable, quality stuff.”

After the release of their previous album, By the Way, the Red Hot Chili Peppers embarked on a world tour, which lasted from July 2002 to a mid-June 2004 date at London’s Hyde Park. The band later appeared at the 2004 Democratic National Convention and at Rock am Ring to tie up their tour in support of By the Way. The band then settled down to begin recording their next album in September 2004 with producer Rick Rubin, with whom they had recorded four albums previously.

    I thought this would have so much filler because it's a double album, but I'm enjoying the hell out of this. In my opinion, it's their third best, after Blood Sugar Sex Magik and Californication.

    I hate it when people equate success or popularity with mediocrity so thoughtlessly... [3] RHCP are one of those few bands where the most popular stuff is the best stuff, thanks in the most part to John (I don't care how many times this has been said, he made this band).

    Will always be up there... but let's not forget "What Hits!?" and "Out In L.A." ;) seriously, though. Find yourself a copy of "Venus" the would-have-been third disc of b-sides from SA. You won't regret it.

    And to add to the 'holy quadrilogy' thing, mine are Freaky Styley, Mother's Milk, BSSM, and Stadium.

    Their best album since BSSM. It's funny how an album that's twice the length of Californication feels like it has much less filler.

    Just listened again to this whole double album and I think this is a solid double album, maybe equal to other classic double album such as London Calling, White Album, Exile on main st., and The Wall.
