This weeks selection comes from a band that was formed to be "the world's worst band". In 1981, Bill Manspeaker & Joe Cannizarro formed Green Jellÿ (originally named Green Jell-O, after a friend suggested it because of "lime flavored Jell-O being the worst flavor of Jell-O", as well as the lack of talent from the band).
The band was known more for its antics, rather than their songs or talents. After a lawsuit, the band was renamed Green Jellÿ. Gaining a cult following (again, because of their onstage antics, rather than their talent), the band released Cereal Killer in 1992, with their actual hit song "3 Little Pigs"
The song reached prominence by hitting the charts at #17 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1993. The song was ranked #35 on VH1's 40 Most Awesomely Bad Metal Songs...Ever.
Never meant to be taken seriously, they are described as a "comedy heavy metal band", because of their lack of talent and their parody-like songs.*
Here it is, this weeks selection "3 Little Pigs". Enjoy!
Green Jellÿ claimed that they were the "World's First Video Only Band" in order to get signed by Zoo Entertainment? The bluff worked, and Zoo Entertainment signed them; only they didn't actually know what they were doing, and had to learan about making videos on the fly. It took one year, and $50,000 later, but the result was the video only album, Cereal Killer. In 1993, Cereal Killer was finally released on cd.*
