Red Hot Chili Peppers have become the first rock band to have two No. 1 albums on the Billboard 200 Album chart in 17 years, with their companion pieces “Unlimited Love” and “Return of the Dream Canteen”.

The band that held the title previously was System of a Down, which topped the chart twice in 2005 with their albums “Mezmerize” and “Hypnotize”.

Both Chilis’ efforts have also made it to No. 1 on the Billboard Top Album Sales Chart, anchored on the strength of singles like “Tippa My Tongue” and “Eddie”.
