Red Hot Chili Peppers Make Chart History With 'Dark Necessities'.

Red Hot Chili Peppers

(Classic Rock) The Red Hot Chili Peppers' latest single "Dark Necessities" has secured them an extension of the chart record they already hold. The lead track from 11th album The Getaway, launched in June, is their 13th No.1 hit on the Billboard Modern Rock chart, and also their 14th topper on the Alternative chart.

The follow-up to 2011's I'm With You was delayed after bassist Flea suffered serious injuries in a snowboarding accident. He recently told how he feared his career was over as result, saying: "A girl looked at my X-rays and said, 'There are big pieces of bone shorn off. You broke it in five places. There's nerve damage. I was so bummed. I felt like I'd let everybody down, because we couldn't record, but we'd written all our stuff. I was just really, really sad."

The Red Hot Chili Peppers' previous Modern Rock No.1 hits are Give It Away (1991), Soul To Squeeze (1993), My Friends (1995), Scar Tissue (1999), Otherside (2000), Californication (2000), By The Way (2002), Can't Stop (2002), Dani California (2006), Tell Me Baby (2006), Snow (2006) and The Adventures Of Rain Dance Maggie (2011).
