Red Hot Chili Peppers cover Neil Young, Beach Boys, Bowie, and more on new EP

Red Hot Chili Peppers have announced that they will be releasing an EP of covers.  The digital-only We Salute You comes out on May 1st to help celebrate their induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.

I'm familiar with a couple of the tracks already.  One, The Stooges' "Search & Destroy", is exceptional, the other, their lazy rendition of The Ramones' "Havana Affair", is atrocious.  So expect a hit and miss record.

Here's the track list:

  • A Teenager in Love (Dion and the Belmonts) 
  • Havana Affair (Ramones)
  • Search & Destroy (Iggy and the Stooges) 
  • Everybody Knows This is Nowhere (Neil Young) [live] 
  • I Get Around (The Beach Boys) [live] 
  • Suffragette City (David Bowie) [live]
Frankly, I think the Beach Boys cover could be a pleasant surprse.
