Green Jelly

Bill Manspeaker, a resident of Hollywood, California, formed Green Jellÿ in 1981 as Green Jellö, a four-piece comedy-punk band. As most of the band's members were poor musicians at the time, they billed themselves as "The World's Worst Band" and emphasized bizarre theatrics, power chords, and self-deprecating humor. The name, which was suggested by a friend of the band, was chosen because the band members felt lime-flavored Jell-O was the worst Jell-O flavor, and Manspeaker believed this also reflected the band's talents.

The band's early 1990s lineup, during their most popular phase, included several musicians who went on to appear in other major 1990s acts, most notably Tool. Their biggest hit was the single "Three Little Pigs", adapted from the nursery rhyme.

As of 2017, Green Jelly consists of over 700 members and has band member "franchises" designated to different geographical regions, both in and out of the United States. Green Jelly also holds a world's record for having the most active band members.

Green Jellÿ is currently working on a new album, reportedly titled "Green Jellö Garbage Band Kids". Recording is scheduled for release late 2017. The latest song is "Trumpty Dumpty", a collaboration between Bill Manspeaker and Justin Harper, who wrote the song.
