Flea Responds to Fox Host calling Red Hot Chili Peppers the “Worst Band on the Planet”


Red Hot Chili peppers bassist, Flea has responded by saying that he isn’t fazed by a comment made by a Fox anchor calling Red Hot Chili Peppers the “worst band on the planet.”

The comment was made on Fox’s The Five, on a segment discussing the bassist playing bass with KoKo the gorilla.

Anchorman Greg Gutfeld said “As most musicians know, this is a vast improvement over Red Hot Chili Peppers, who are the worst band on the planet.”

Red Hot Chili Peppers headlined Reading over the weekend and in an interview with NME, Flea spoke about playing the same songs all of the time, saying  “I try to keep myself in a place of being completely selfless about it and doing my best to use every song, whether it’s one I’ve heard a million times or a new one, as a vehicle for connecting with people and making them feel less alone in the world.”

He also used the interview as an opportunity to address the Fox Host’s comment about the Red Hot Chili Peppers “I remember seeing a poll recently that said people who watch Fox News knew less about world affairs than people who watch no news at all. It’s clearly a funny programme. It doesn’t faze me, not really.”
