This page is about the band's eponymous debut album. For information on the band, see Red Hot Chili Peppers.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers is the band's debut album, released in 1984.

At the time, the band's name was written as The Red Hot Chili Peppers, just like the name of the album.

Most of the songs were written in 1983 with founding members Hillel Slovak and Jack Irons, and earlier versions of these songs appeared on the band's 1983 Demo.

They decided to leave the band and Anthony Kiedis and Flea ended up hiring Jack Sherman and Cliff Martinez to record the entire album. They wrote a few more songs together and toured with them after the album was released.
