3. Red Hot Chili Peppers – Brendan’s Death Song This was written as a tribute to the Chilis’ late friend Brendan Mullen (founder of 70s Hollywood punk club the Masque). In 1983, Anthony Kiedis and Flea took a demo tape to a popular LA club, Club Lingerie. There they had their first encounter with Mullen, who was the booker for the club at the time. They played Mullen their tape while they danced around to the song – and Mullen was so impressed, he offered them a spot opening for Bad Brains. Mullen stayed good friends with the RHCPs until his death in 2009.
