Best Bands with Colorful Names

The Top TenXW

1Pink 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. - Nickname

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.

3Black 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! - rock2metal

one of the greatest bands of all time, they are truely the pioneers of metal

the greatest band ever along with led zeppelin

listening to the name I thought it black metal

4Deep 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. - Metal_Treasure

5Green Day

Best band on this list.

Also best color, even without bands. Just sayin. No coincidence - cowboyskid2

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

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

My favorite band of all time, and their name is just as awesome!

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

most innovative band of recent times - anupjonesm

12Maroon 5

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

14Moody Blues
16Dir en Grey
17The 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!
