Bands Named After Foods + Generate Food Band Names

I don't know about you, but two of my favorite things in life are food and music. There's nothing better than shoving nom-noms into my pie-hole while listening to my favorite band. Apparently, there are a lot of bands that love food so much they named their band after it.

Below, we list famous bands named after foods grouped by category. If we missed any, be sure to add a comment. Also, be sure to try out our new Food Band Name Generator feature which allows you to generate band names with foods in them. If your band is named after a food, leave a comment.
