Chili Peppers Make Top 100

The phenomenal success of the RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS' last album has propelled them into a list of the 100 most successful artists of all time.

The California rockers join illustrious company - ELVIS PRESLEY leads the list and the top ten is populated by the likes of THE BEATLES, QUEEN, MADONNA, SIR ELTON JOHN, MICHAEL JACKSON, DAVID BOWIE and U2.

The table is compiled by GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS for their book BRITISH HIT SINGLES + ALBUMS. Artists are ranked each year according to how many weeks they spend in the UK singles and albums charts.

The Chili Peppers, whose 2002 LP BY THE WAY shot to the top of the charts in the UK and US, are the only new entry in 2004, sneaking in at number 97.

DAVID ROBERTS, editor of British Hit Singles + Albums, says, "It's rare to get new acts breaking into the top 100, so this really is an incredible achievement."
