Shred guitar showoff

Days before their 2014 Super Bowl appearance, the Chili Peppers offered as an appetizer of what they may be cooking up with the new track: “Abaracabadbralifornia”.

Jon Daly and I recorded a fake Chili Peppers song so precise and so bad, media outlets worldwide reported it as authentic. I wrote the music and played all the instruments.


“The song is classic Peppers, so much so, it almost sounds like a parody.” yahoo

“Hilarious. The song was nearly indistinguishable from the genuine article, fooling many into thinking both the site and the song were legit. A must-listen” paste magazine

“Jon Daly and Cyrus Ghahremani fooled everyone – had Twitter debating whether the song was real or not.  They expertly lampoon the band’s slap bass-anchored funk-rock, love of all things California and Anthony Kiedis’ non-sequitur raps” rolling stone

“Pure comedic gold – and it’s so terrible that people are actually mistaking it for a real RHCP song.” LAist

“This Red Hot Chili Peppers Satire Song Makes Me Want to Kiss Its Creator on the Mouth” bustle

“A brilliantly subtle fake Chili Peppers tune released by some exceptional Internet jokesters. An instant classic.” time magazine
