A Lip-Synced Red Hot Chili Peppers Performance From The Late 80s (Video)
Posted by Ms. DeMark on February 06 2014

At the Super Bowl this past Sunday, the Red Hot Chili Peppers joined Bruno Mars on stage for the halftime show. Many people have noticed that the Chili Peppers were not really playing their instruments, but merely miming it, as their instruments were not plugged in.  In a recent letter, bass player Flea explains that the NFL would not let them play live because there isn't nearly enough time to do sound checks to make everything sound perfect.

In that same letter, he also stated "The Red Hot Chili Peppers stance on any sort of miming has been that we will absolutely not do it. The last time we did it (or tried to) was in the late 80′s."  Well, lucky for you, we have found that video. Watch the guys play Higher Ground at Club MTV in the late '80s as they mime playing their instruments horribly.
