Green Jellÿ (aka Green Jellö) is an American comedy rock band formed in 1981 by Bill Manspeaker. As most of the band's members were poor musicians at the time, they billed themselves as "The World's Worst Band". Originally named Green Jellö, the band changed its name due to legal pressure from Kraft Foods Inc., the owners of the Jell-O brand, who claimed that it was an infringement of their trademark. Known for sophomoric humor, theatrical performances, and intentionally crude musicianship, Green Jellÿ has had hundreds of members during its existence, with vocalist Bill Manspeaker the only consistent member throughout. Notable past members include future Tool members Danny Carey and Maynard James Keenan, who were both in Green Jellÿ during the early 1990s. To date, the band has released five studio albums: Triple Live Möther Gööse at Budokan (1989), Cereal Killer Soundtrack (1993), 333 (1994), Musick to Insult Your Intelligence By (2009), and Garbage Band Kids (2021). They are best known for their 1992 hit "Three Little Pigs", which was adapted from the fairy tale. The video for "Three Little Pigs" was directed by Fred Stuhr (who also directed Tool's "Sober" video), and it featured a claymation rendition of the classic fairy tale with modern twists, such as pot-smoking pigs, an appearance by Rambo, and a Harley Davidson-riding wolf. The video was No. 17 for most of the summer of 1993 in the US and received both an MTV music award and Billboard music award nomination. The song entered the UK Singles Chart at a peak position of No. 5. Serial Killer Soundtrack attained gold status in the US, New Zealand, and Canada, as well as platinum in Australia. Green Jelly still receives over 1 million Spotify streams and YouTube plays each year
