The Top Ten

Pink Floyd
I LOVE ANIMALS (the album), the dark side of the moon is OK. wish you were here (song), comfortably numb, another brick in the wall part 2, money, time, us and them, brain damage, eclipse and all of animals are the only pink floyd songs that I like. have a cigar is ok, but goes on for too long.


Pink Floyd... You can't help but just think about what that name means. It's so mysterious, so passionate, so artistic yet so Powerful. They know how to take control... Long live their legacy.
Pink floyd is freeking amazing, dark side of the moon, brick in the wall. I mean cmon, how could they not be first

2Red Hot Chili Peppers
Awesome name. I've always hated the chili peppers... ALWAYS. I can't stand them. I hate Anthony Kietis with every ounce of my heart... but... I like the band name... It's an awesome name.
I Love The Chilli Peppers... They have the most original music ever... They are awesomely crazy!
why isnt dis song first on the list t is just such a vibrant name

3Deep Purple
the best band ever with the best colorful name.

Purple is the color most often associated with royalty, magic, mystery and piety.
Imperial color, worn by the rulers of the Byzantine Empire and the Holy Roman Empire, and later by Roman magistrates and Roman Catholic bishops.

The name of the key bandmember is also with a color - Ritchie BLACKmore, aka The Man In Black.
Lots of songs with colorful names: Black Night, Black & White, Rat Rat Blue.
A band can't get more epic and colorful than that.


black knight is good song too


Everyone knows smoke on the water


4Black Sabbath
Green Day shouldn't be before a legend of metal, but what's wrong with you people? Black Eyed Peas before BLACK SABBATH?
it's clear that the people who voted for those suckers don't know what music is!


one of the greatest bands of all time, they are truely the pioneers of metal
the greatest band ever along with led zeppelin

5Green Day
Green Day is amazing on it's own, and it just happens to have a color in the name. As a bonus.
Best band on this list.

Also best color, even without bands. Just sayin. No coincidence


why are black eyed peas over them. everyone is voting for them cause fergie is there right.

6The Black Eyed Peas
The peas are awesome. Boom Boom pow rocks


Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker. 'nuff said.

8King Crimson


10Maroon 5
Maroon 5 rock!
Green Day is overrated.
They should be last. Or not on the list at all...

The Contenders

11Blue Oyster Cult
their music is absolutely great, especially "don't fear the reaper"
They're worth a Buck, Dharma.
Uh... Honestly now, I don't think anyone can surpass this band's greatness...


12Black Label Society

13The White Stripes
most innovative band of recent times


7... Nation... Army... Enough SAID.


15Dir en Grey

16The Black Keys
The Black Keys know how to form a good sound and keep it. Plus, their band name is legit. "The Black Keys" and most of their songs are in a minor key, meaning they use more of the black keys. Makes sense, right? Awesome band! Put them in the top ten!
Are you kidding me... ? The Black Keys are MIND-BLOWING! Hail to Carney and Auerbach!

17Plain White T's


19Crimson Glory

20Orange Range
