Green Jelly (pronounced 'green jello') is a Grammy-nominated American comedy rock band formed in 1981. Originally named Green Jelly, the band changed its name due to legal pressure from the owners of the Jell-O trademark, Kraft Foods, who claimed that it was an infringement of their trademark. Despite the spelling difference, the new name and the old are pronounced identically. Green Jelly formed in 1981 as Green Jelly, a four piece comedy-punk band, in Kenmore, New York. It was founded by Bill Manspeaker and Joe Cannizzaro. They began the band with the idea of starting 'The World's Worst Band'.
