Welcome, all, to Battle of the Bands 47! At BotB 46, a group of over-enthusiastic pyrotechnicians by the name of Rammstein were dethroned by legendary funky monks, the Red Hot Chili Peppers!
When you vote, please request a musical act for the challenger list. Each act will be added to the list in the order they are requested. (Only one request at a time per person, please.) Battles will be usually be posted on Mondays I will post these with extreme inconsistency, as I often forget and/or can't be arsed. The voting period typically lasts for about one week. I will try to post a heads-up as voting nears an end What happens, happens. Does anybody even read this part? When a band loses, it will be unable to re-challenge for 10 rounds. If an act achieves 10 straight victories, they will be retired from champion status and the next two challengers in the request list will duke it out for supremacy!
Note: The term "musical act" denotes any band, solo artist, vocal group... whatever you like. Basically, this is an all-inclusive popularity contest.
Voters are encouraged to include their opinions of the bands/artists in the battle, or at least a few short words about the act they voted for. Not a requirement, of course!
GIVE IT AWAY, NOW!

Red Hot Chili Peppers are an American funk rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1983. The group's musical style primarily consists of rock with an emphasis on funk, as well as elements from other genres such as punk rock and psychedelic rock. When played live, their music incorporates elements of jam band due to the improvised nature of many of their performances. Currently, the band consists of founding members vocalist/rhythm guitarist Anthony Kiedis and bassist Flea, longtime drummer Chad Smith, and former touring guitarist Josh Klinghoffer. Red Hot Chili Peppers are one of the best-selling bands of all time with over 80 million records sold worldwide, have been nominated for sixteen Grammy Awards, of which they have won six, and are the most successful band in alternative rock radio history, currently holding the records for most number-one singles (13), most cumulative weeks at number one (85) and most top-ten songs (25) on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart. In 2012, they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Papa Roach is an American rock band from Vacaville, California. Formed in 1993, their first major-label release was the triple-platinum album Infest (2000). The group's success continued with their gold album Lovehatetragedy (2002), their platinum album Getting Away with Murder (2004), The Paramour Sessions (2006), Metamorphosis (2009), Time for Annihilation (2010), The Connection (2012), and F.E.A.R. (2015). Papa Roach has sold more than 20 million album copies worldwide and are known for their songs "Last Resort", "Between Angels and Insects", "She Loves Me Not", "Getting Away with Murder", "Scars", "Forever", "Lifeline", and "Face Everything and Rise". Their eighth studio album, Crooked Teeth, was released on May 19, 2017. The first single from the album, "Help", topped the Billboard Mainstream Rock Songs chart in April 2017.

Gotta be Red Hot Chili Peppers. Just an all-around better library.
Thanks Taker_2004 for the banner!
Gonna go with Papa Roach. Partly because it's my wife's favourite band, and partly because they got in there before the Chili's did for an early iconic song from my childhood!

Red Hot Chili Peppers. I like some Papa Roach, but some of their songs just grate on my nerves or—frankly—suck. Not saying the Peppers are flawless or anything, but I find much more value in their music.
RHCP, hands down.
Gonna request Andrew W.K. here for a future spot.
Gonna put in a request for Placebo too, because why not! :-P
I elected Placebo a while ago and had them in a BotB fairly recently. You can re-elect them if you wish, or choose another band/artist; your call!

oh, forgot about that! they came up on the radio earlier so they were kinda on my mind ;-)
Erm... What the hell, let's go with AFI for the lols! :-P
I'm a huuuge AFI fan, as it happens. Big deal band for me. Hunter Burgan is (or at least was) a beast on bass, and 100% top-notch by genre standards.
