Whatever credibility the Red Hot Chili Peppers might have had before today is pretty much gone.
The time to tell people that the NFL is making you play to a pre-recorded backing track is before you actually go out and pretend to play your instrument. The time to own up to their demands is before you make a joke out of your band. This isn't Top of the Pops. This is music played live before people, and if the NFL is that way, don't play for them.
Say no next time.
I mean, how hard is it to have integrity at this stage of the game?
