3. Red Hot Chili Peppers Californication (1999)
Rick Rubin actually produced The Red Hot Chili Peppers 1991 commercial breakthrough Blood Sugar Sex Magik but the pressures of success lead to the departure of guitarist John Frusciante. The band slogged through the decade with a succession of replacements but didn’t make much of an impact until Frusciante returned for their landmark Californication record which expanded both their sound and audience. The group credits producer Rubin with giving them the creative freedom to achieve the album’s unique sound.
