    Green Jelly. Totally forgot about them. I sought out the incomparable services of Wikipedia and learned that these guys, it appears, were almost literally as talented as your standard Guitar Hero enthusiast. To wit:

    “The name (made up by beloved band friend Mark Potter) was chosen because lime-flavored Jell-O was widely regarded as the worst Jell-O flavor, and Bill thought the name reflected their band’s talents. Barely able to play instruments, the band began playing punk shows around Buffalo, New York, with the intention of acting crazy onstage. The band was so technically inept that Joe (then playing bass) had to color-code his bass so that songs could be learned by color, such as “red, green, blue, blue, green”, etc.”

    You have to give Green Jello some credit – they made great videos. Somewhere, I have a VHS tape of all their videos I once borrowed from a friend and then never returned. That was in 1994.

    Toucan (son of sam) is probably my favorite. God bless YouTube.
