''One Hot Minute'' is the sixth studio album by American alternative rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers, released on September 12, 1995, on Warner Bros. Records. The worldwide success of the band's previous album, ''Blood Sugar Sex Magik'' (1991), caused guitarist John Frusciante to become uncomfortable with their status, eventually quitting mid-tour in 1992.

''One Hot Minute'' was the only album that guitarist Dave Navarro would record with the band. His presence altered the Red Hot Chili Peppers' sound considerably. It contains fewer sexual themes than previous records, and explores darker subject matters such as drug use, depression, anguish and grief. It also (re-)integrated use of heavy metal guitar riffs. Vocalist Anthony Kiedis, who had resumed addictions to cocaine and heroin in 1994 after being sober for more than five years, approached his lyricism with a reflective outlook on drugs and their harsh effects.

''One Hot Minute'' was a commercial disappointment despite producing three hit singles and reaching number four on the ''Billboard'' 200 chart. It sold less than half as many copies as ''Blood Sugar Sex Magik'' and received much less critical acclaim. Navarro was ultimately fired from the band due to creative differences in 1998. - Wikipedia
