Best Bands with Colorful Names
The Top Ten
The greatest band England have ever created, journeying through and incorporating the many styles and genres of blues, classical, pop, rock and prog, they rightly sit at the top of the list. With multi million selling albums and multi million fans worldwide how can they not be at the top. It's reputed every home in Britain has a Pink Floyd album in it ( "And quite rightly so" ) mine thankfully has a vast amount of their official and unofficiall album releases. They have touched on many aspects of man's and the world's hopes and fears, 'War, alienation, greed, love' and not just in the Dark side of the Moon album, but in albums before and after this milestone. This album was a 'Benchmark' for all those around, ( And also to follow ) to try and emulate and better, many tried and succeeded, many others fell short, but in doing so it enriches us all. So I say "Shine on you crazy diamonds, 'Let there be more light', on an 'Interstellar overdrive' and let's 'Set the controls for the heart ...more
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.
Not enough people this day and age know about these guys. They think of Floyd as "The T-shirt with the prism on it." Well, kids if you want to here real music, LISTEN TO THE BESTV 4 Comments
I Love The Chilli Peppers... They have the most original music ever... They are awesomely crazy!
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.

Green Day shouldn't be before a legend of metal, but what's wrong with you people? Black Eyed Peas before BLACK SABBATH?

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
black knight is good song too
I love the song Fireball and dark purple is my third favorite color - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

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

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

their music is absolutely great, especially "don't fear the reaper"
Uh... Honestly now, I don't think anyone can surpass this band's greatness... - irish400V 1 Comment
Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker. 'nuff said.
Maroon 5 rock!
Green Day is overrated.
They should be last. Or not on the list at all...
most innovative band of recent times - anupjonesmV 1 Comment
Although "blue" is a color, "the blues" is not. - Billyv
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!
