List RulesBand name must have something to do with food/edible substances

The best bands that are named after food criss-cross the music world with offerings from music genres like indie rock, classic rock, and even a little hip-hop. The only rule here is that these famous bands must have some kind of food affiliation. For instance: Ice Cube has no caloric value so he doesn't count. Ice-T, however, is a sweet delicious treat on a hot day and in the music world, so he's in.
