''Blood Sugar Sex Magik'' is the fifth studio album by American alternative rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers, released on September 24, 1991. Produced by Rick Rubin, it was the band's first record released on Warner Bros. Records. The musical styles of ''Blood Sugar Sex Magik'' differed notably from the techniques employed on the Chili Peppers' preceding album, ''Mother's Milk'', and featured little use of heavy metal guitar riffs. The album's subject matter incorporated sexual innuendos and references to drugs and death as well as themes of lust and exuberance.

Peaking at number three on the ''Billboard'' 200, the album has sold over thirteen million copies worldwide and was the Red Hot Chili Peppers' introduction into worldwide popularity and critical acclaim. ''Blood Sugar Sex Magik'' produced an array of hit singles including the hugely successful "Under the Bridge", "Give It Away", "Suck My Kiss" and "Breaking the Girl". Guitarist John Frusciante quit the band mid-tour in 1992 (until returning in 1998) due to his inability to cope with the album's popularity. ''Blood Sugar Sex Magik'' is recognized as an influential and seminal component of the alternative rock explosion in the early 1990s. Steve Huey of Allmusic noted that ''Blood Sugar Sex Magik'' is "...probably the best album the Chili Peppers will ever make." - Wikipedia
