View Full Version : Veggies in Music

After a post by Tizzy about cabbage and cauliflowers, I remembered of the Brussel Sprout pop/rock band

googling for them
I realised they were a just pretty obscure and forgotten one-album band from 3 decades ago

OTOH, Red Hot Chili Peppers have great fame and fortune all over the globe (may you lov'em or hat'em)

I can't think of any other vegetable-named band right now, nor songs or albums.

Fruits, flowers and trees don't qualify

I can only offer Prefab Sprout and Devo's Hot Potatoes 'Best Of'

I had the Magic Mushroom Band which I have on a psychedelic compilation album. But thats just fungus right?

Ah, yes, I wanted to remember about Prefab Sprout but got the wrong sprout!!!

I now realise I had actually never heard about the band linked above!

That reminds me. One of my all time favourites. The wonderful Black Eyed Peas. Where's the love y'all?

I've got a couple of songs as well but it's interesting how many more fruit names there are than veggie names.

my God. I had erased the crapness that was Prefab fucking Sprout out of my mind.

Thanks for bringing that up. ;)
