Stadium Arcadium is the ninth studio album by American alternative rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers. It was released on May 9, 2006 by record label Warner Bros. Records. It sold 442,000 copies in the U.S. in the first week. It also appeared in the number one position on the Billboard 200 chart.[1] According to Anthony Kiedis, Stadium Arcadium was going to be three different albums that the band would release; one every six months. However, they changed their mind and made one big double album.[2] Critics said in reviews of Stadium Arcadium that the music on it was not very original, and was similar to the band's older work. However, they said it was still very good music.[3] Stadium Arcadium won a Grammy Award, and so did "Dani California", the first single.[4]
