The band’s first commercial success was with the album BloodSugarSexMagik released in 1991. The album contained hit singles “Under the Bridge” and “Give It Away”. There was sold more than 4 million copies.

In 1999, Californication was released and it was commercial and critical triumph. The band was on top with the singles “Scar Tissue” and “Otherside“.
