Red Hot Chili Peppers, sometimes abbreviated as “RHCP”, are an American rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1983. The RHCP emblem features an eight-pronged red asterisk in red with the band name around it. According to RHCP front man Anthony Kiedis, the symbol has no particular meaning, but began as a simple icon he drew on a piece of paper when asked by record label executives to create a band logo for promotional purposes.
A variation of the logo can be seen on the cover of 1989 album Mother’s Milk and the font used for the text is Franklin Gothic. The font for the logo above, however, is Arial Black.
