Talent: Chili Peppers (Flea is one the best bass player)
Best frontman: Chili Peppers
Most underrated guitarist in ROCK: John Frusciante
Which Band is He in: Chili Peppers
Band that gives a fuck about its real fans: Chili Peppers
Band that was called grunge even though they were not: Pearl Jam
Band who's frontman is consider a joke: Pearl Jam
Band that wishes it was still the 90's and people still remembered them for TEN and not the other crap they made: Pearl Jam
band that uses the same chords over and over: Pearl Jam
I do like both these bands but Chili Peppers win. They have more talent and you guys need to listen to WET SAND and TURN IT AGAIN. John shows people he can play. Flea is always on point and if you guys think all their music is the same take a listen to By The Way and Stadium Arcadium. Same Band two different sounds.
I don't really care about either band, so I'm not sure why I'm weighing in here. But here goes anyway ...

RHCP for sure
Pearl Jam sucks MLB was epic!!!
No matter who is better that idea of both groups playing in the same place in the same weekend might make for the best weekend EVER. I would S myself.
i die with you
Pearl Jam, hands down. And I love the Chili Peppers. To the guy who said RHCP give more to their true fans. What the fuck are you talking about? Pearl Jam puts on a 2.5 - 3 hour show filled with b-sides and rarities that only their die hard fans would truly appreciate. Not to mention the Ten Club. Getting a fan club only vinyl single for Christmas is pretty fucking badass. Not to mention getting the closest tickets for their shows, minus the service fees. Let's not forget the fact that 98% of the shows they have played over the last 7 years they have recorded and sold for just barely over the cost of production. Pearl Jam is the single greatest band ever when it comes to how they treat their fans.
Like I said, I love the Chili Peppers, but Pearl Jam kicks the shit out of them

i saw both bands this past year. i've seen RHCP 3 times, and the last time they played was probaby the 2nd best performance i've witnessed (1st being Coachella '03). Pearl Jam was actually pretty boring, and I love PJ. Sonic Youth opened for them, and they were pretty good live.
I dunno, its like comparing apples to oranges. I just think RHCP is more exciting, Pearl Jam is more mellow. You feel the emotion in Eddie Vedder, but with RHCP, you feel the emotion with John Frusciante. Does that make any sense?
I really enjoy Pearl Jam when I'm listening by myself. If I were to throw a party at my house, I think RHCP would be more appropriate.
Pearl Jam at The Forum - Beyond outstanding.
RHCP at The Forum - eh.
Pearl Jam did a lot of one-off secret-ish shows for fans at really tiny venues over the last few years.
RHCP released album after album with sound suggesting that they believe they peaked at the song "Californication."
John Frusciante is about as underrated as a guitarist as Donnie Darko was underrated as a movie. Everyone knows him and rates him well enough, now.
*based upon tedious fact checking.
the lead singer from Pearl has an annoying as voice
EVERYONE ON HERE WHO CONSTANTLY BASHES CHILI PEPPERS SHOULD AT LEAST ADMIT THAT FRUSCIANTE PLUS FLEA IS POSSIBLY THE BEST GUITARIST/ BASSIST COMBO IN ROCK RIGHT NOW
Red Hot Chili Peppers all the way! What is with all the haters out here! Sure, Pearl Jam is great, but damn, album after album it just gets more depressing. Maybe some people have enough of that considering the state of the world that we are living in. In addition to that, we should all be thankful that we get to go out and enjoy an event like Coachella, so many people have it far worse off! To bash one band to another is a step back. What about progression, love - accepting differences in one another - if every band was the same, what would music be all about? Whoever even started this blog sucks just a bit. Im not going to bother bashing Pearl Jam, they are so clearly talented, But i do support RHCP all the way. They've been my fave band since 4th grade! Is anyone out there even aware that Anthony played a considerable amount of 2006 and 2007 with 2 broken toes! Night after night! Flea is an amazing artist, I have met him, very considerate and conscious of who his fans are and what they go through to see and support them. I have met John Frusciante as well, his talent goes so unrecognized, I dont get it, he's insane, that talent just, I can't put it into words! Chad, he rules, what a fucking gifted drummer, fun and solid! He's been such a blessing for this band. Anthony, man, what he's been through - John as well, look at what he's done with it! His voice has matured so much - has anyone listened to Stadium Arcadium? Now, Im finding myself getting upset over people hating on such beautiful musicians - Im gonna be done for now... Angela - Cleveland, Ohio.
why does everyone think that people think John Frusciante's underrated? Everyone I know, knows he's an incredible guitarist.
I dig the Peppers more. To me their new sound is not as cool as their pre-californication sound, but Stadium Arcadium and By the Way have a wide range of styles. Keidis does sing on both cds. PJ has not excited me since 10 or vs.
I think this is apples to oranges also. RHCP brings the funk. PJ brings something else.
I'd much rather see pearl jam, seen them twice and it was fantastic. I'd still watch rhcp, but i wouldnt expect much.
Definately PJ!!!! Nothing like a rough voice singing some old sounding rock and roll for me.....RHCP is wimpy at times
this will make my third time in six months to see red hot chili peppers. pearl jam pretty tight but they'll never beat chili peppers
