No, this should not synonymous with cringe thread. RHCP is severely underrated within the confines of /mu/ imo. Never understood the hatred towards them here.

Personally, I don't think they've released a bad album. Stadium Arcadium should've been a single album, but even that had some fantastic moments.

Not to mention, they've had some pretty fucking impressive members:

John Frusciante: my favorite currently living artist. Phenomenal guitar player and writer. Check out all of his solo work if you haven't already, it ranges from experimental rock to avant-garde lo-fi folk to even IDM & acid house.

Flea: god-tier bassist. Collaborated with The Mars Volta a few times, and was great on Amok. He was also a nihilist in the Big Lebowski.

Josh Klinghoffer: started one of the best currently active alt-rock bands, Dot Hacker. Did some great collaborations with John Frusciante in the early 2000s.

Anthony Kiedis: Ok, I'm aware that he's probably a big part of the reason most of you hate him. However, it's pretty hard to hate him after having read his autobiography. He's a cool guy with a cool story. Not to mention, his vocals only got progressively better.

Jack Irons: released a fucking fantastic experimental drum album in 2003(?)

Cliff Martinez: scored Drive and recorded with Captain Beefheart

Dave Navarro: p great guitar player

Hillel Slovak: had a really great, unique playing style. rip

Chad Smith: about as good as alt-rock drummers get

It's completely fine if you don't enjoy their music. As long as you hate them for what they make and not what they are

Here's the thing about Mike. The man has some serious pipes. He has a six octave range and excelled in any octave. He writes brilliant songs. And his stage presence is only matched by Adolf Hitler.
Seriously, Watch Mr. Bungle play What the World needs now at Bizarre Festival and then watch a video of the Nuremburg rallies. We better thank our lucky stars Mike didn't go into politics or he would have taken over the world.
But Mr. Bungle as a whole had a brilliant dynamic. It wasn't just the Mike Patton backup band. They all made huge creative contributions to what made Bungle what it is. Yes Mike wrote Girls of Porn, Sweet Charity and The Air conditioned Nightmare.
But Trevor Dunn wrote Retrovertigo, The holy Filament and Phlegmatics. Trey Spruance wrote Desert Search for Techno Allah, None of them know they were robots, Golem II the bionic vapour boy.
Other bands like Nirvana for instance were not like that. Nirvana was basically just the Kurt Cobain backup band. Mr. Bungle was the perfect storm of legendary talent, and Mike was the face of it all, the delicious cherry on top of an already delicious sundae.
He was the ambassador that allowed the amazing talent of the combo that was Mr. Bungle to be brought into our lives. He was the prism that focused the lazer beams from the brains of Trevor, Trey, Heifietz and Mckinnon and amplified them until they were powerful enough to blow out minds out through our ear holes.
Yes, he is the most incredible front man who has ever lived, hands down.

I'm mostly a fan, but I must say, a lot of what you said has nothing to do with them being an underrated band.

I'm with you sucks hard tho

I said underrated within the confines of /mu/. And I actually think it's one of their best releases
