Red Hot Chili Peppers are hopping on the “Sell Your Catalogue” train. The Chili Peppers have just sold a large chunk of their catalogue to publishing company Hipgnosis for $150 million. Songs included in this sell are “Give it Away,” “Californication,” and “Snow (Hey Oh).” Meanwhile Red Hot Chili Peppers are reportedly working on a new album, a followup to 2016’s The Getaway. Do you think selling their publishing rights is a good move for the Red Hot Chili Peppers? Which Red Hot Chili Peppers song would you want to own the rights to?
