"I know the music on this record was just way too obscure to ever be popular in a mainstream kind of way, but to me it really holds its own as a definitive & substantial musical statement. More than any other record we ever made it falls into the category of "too funky for white radio, too punk rockin’ for black." Of course, the songs were very far away from any pop format; I realize it is/was not just the racial segregation at radio that precluded it from being a popular record"

Flea on ‘Freaky Styley’, Red Hot Chili Peppers’ second record released in ‘85
