List Rules Vote up the greatest bands that have the word "green" in their band name. Can include variations of other shades of green.

When it comes to bands in the musical rainbow, plenty of them have green or shades of green in their names. This list of green band names is proof. From rock to hip hop to techno, blues and heavy metal, you’ll find bands with green in the name from virtually all music genres. As a wise frog once sang, “It’s not easy being green” – but sometimes, it is, particularly if you’re a popular band or artist with a loyal following.

What’s the first green band name that comes to mind? There’s a fairly good chance it’s Green Day, the punk rock band formed by Billie Joe Armstrong in 1986. Green Day has enjoyed decades of musical success. But what’s with the name? A song Armstrong wrote about his first experience with – you guessed it – marijuana inspired the band’s name.  

Not all bands with the color green in their name have such “colorful” stories, but they certainly deserve a spot on this list. The comedy rock band Green Jelly was originally named Green Jello – but the group changed its name because Kraft Foods (the owners of Jell-O) claimed trademark infringement. Oops. Still, the green part of the name stuck!

What is the best musical group with green in its name? Time to vote for your personal picks!
