Hard to categorize Jane’s Addiction’s sound, although “alternative metal” seems to be the designation of choice, with tastes of funk metal, punk and other flavors = “funk punk.” Formed in Los Angeles in 1985, the original group was frontman Perry Farrell, guitarist Dave Navarro, drummer Stephen Perkins and bassist Chris Chaney. Their first live self-titled debut album was followed by the tremendous success of Nothing’s Shocking (1988) and Ritual de lo Habitual (1990). Their farewell tour in 1991 launched the Lollapalooza tour, which has became a base for alternative rock. Since 1991 Jane’s Addiction have appeared, disappeared and appeared again, with original members coming and going and artists like Flea stepping in. Jane’s Addiction for elected into the Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame in 2016.
