Red Hot Chili Peppers as Nirvana

In the new video by Red Hot Chili Peppers, Dani California (the first single off their new album), they re-create a number of important scenes from music history. This includes Elvis, Jimi Hendrix, The Sex Pistols and Nirvana. Their "Nirvana moment" comes in the form of a re-creation of a scene from Nirvana's Unplugged performance. Watch the video here.

In an interview about the video, the band explains: "We're paying homage to these eras," said singer Anthony Kiedis. "We appreciate and love all these eras. It's very interesting because for a band like us, if we've been around long enough and we've lived through a lot of these eras at least the ones from the 80s on, and though we've always been conscious of our environment and aware of what's going on around us but we've never been aligned specifically within the era of any group and it's fun to pay homage to something."
