no doubt this has been done a million times before but can anyone add any more to this list we came up with in all of 5 mins over friday lunchtime?

white stripes
cream
yellow
simply red
deep purple
pink
aqua
blue
green day
james brown
black sabbath
silverchair
goldie


no one could think of a band name involving orange, violet, indigo, bronze, etc, etc.

since when is lemon not a colour?

if i said someone had a lemon coloured t-shirt on would you not form a different mental image than if i had said yellow?

I suppose, but it's still only used to describe a particular shade of yellow. It's not a colour in it's own right. [/trivial mode]

And maybe I just wanted to make spaz faces at Dan.

David Gray?

If we can have the Lemonheads & lemon jelly then surely The Moldy Peaches and indeed Peaches can be included too...
