Widely viewed as the best album the Red Hot Chili Peppers ever made, Blood Sugar Sex Magik represents them at the absolute peak of their freakish funk rock powers. Blood Sugar Sex Magik reached #1 in Australia, Canada and New Zealand and #3 on the United States' Billboard 200, has sold over 13 million copies worldwide and was the Red Hot Chili Peppers' introduction into worldwide popularity and critical acclaim. Includes hits such as Breaking the Girl, Give It Away, Suck My Kiss and Under the Bridge among others.
Produced by Frederick Jay "Rick" Rubin, co-founder of Def Jam Records with Russell Simmons, he's known for his "stripped-down" sound which involves eliminating production elements such as string sections, backup vocals and reverb as well as having naked vocals and bare instrumentation. The band sought to record the album in an unconventional setting, believing it would enhance their creative output. Rubin suggested the mansion magician Harry Houdini once lived in to which they agreed and the band decided that they would remain inside the mansion for the duration of recording. The making of the album was released as a documentary, Funky Monks.
Released in 1991, this album was always linked to the SoCal surf scene given Chili Peppers front man Anthony Kiedis' cameo as surf gang member Tone in Point Break which released around the same time.
