Ahead of Faith No More‘s three-night residency at Los Angeles’ Wiltern, the LA Weekly has published a piece on the infamous feud between FNM and the City of Angel’s Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Younger fans may not remember when the Chilis were a generally respected alternative outfit before they became very successful soft rockers in the late 1990s and there were a lot of comparisons between The Real Thing-era FNM and Blood Sugar Sex Magik-era Chilis. Indeed, both outfits were accused of stealing the other’s look and sound at various stages leading to a long-running war of words between Mike Patton and Anthony Kiedis in particular.

Personally, I think the feud was overstated, that it was possibly more a case of Mr Bungle v the Chilis and that Patton’s quote that “I bet we’d have a warm embrace if we saw each other now” is more representative of feelings between the bands.
