Red Hot Chili Peppers, Buckcherry are Red Hot

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

First things first, Buckcherry will be playing a free concert tonight for the Jimmy Kimmel Show at the outdoor stage behind Hollywood High. And yes, the strippers from the "Sexy Bitch" video will be on stage with them.

It's all ages as long as you're over 16. It's free but you need tickets which can be attained here. Because this is being taped for the Kimmel show they ask that you don't wear white or very light colors.

Anyone who saw the Buckcherry/Tsar shows this spring knows the level of rock that these local boys can provide. Check out the "Sexy Bitch" video after the jump.

Meanwhile the Red Hot Chili Peppers have taken over the world. The NY Post reports that the quartet is in the top 10 in 14 different countries.

As of the June 17 charts, the quartet's double disc, "Stadium Arcadium," released just four weeks ago, has secured a top 10 spot in virtually every country where sales records are kept. RHCP nowown the No. 1 album slots in Germany, Greece, Australia and Switzerland; the boys are No. 2 in the United Kingdom, Canada, Italy, Mexico and Hungary. And they rank among the top 10 charting acts in Japan, France, Spain, Finland and Poland - to name a few.

Even in Wallonia, the Walloons have anointed the Chili Peppers with the No. 3 spot on the charts - the same position they currently enjoy here in the United States.

You know what they say, "it might be good but does it play in Wallonia".
