The Red Hot Chili Peppers have announced that they're bringing their music to Spotify, making their entire catalog available on the streaming service as of today. All of the band's records will be available, from their early albums Freaky Styley and Mother's Milk on through their blockbuster hits Blood Sugar Sex Magik and Californication to their latest album, I'm With You.

The Chili Peppers signed an exclusive deal with Spotify. The service, which launched last year in the United States, will be the only streaming service worldwide to feature the band's music. 

The announcement comes one day before the Chilis are inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by comedian Chris Rock. The band is also set to perform at the ceremony in Cleveland.

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
