#bandnameorigins...Ahh the busy life..missed my jammers...still rocking this theme though and will probably return to it from time to time. Living Colour formed in 1984 in NYC was an incredible blend of Heavy metal, jazz, hip hop and rock to name a few. They simply chose their name from a TV intro from the American TV station NBC - no big story there simple and to the point. Lots of messages placed in the video - One of them being the little girl at the beginning staring at the TV - It is reminiscent of the movie Poltergeist and was a nod to how at the time everyone got their information from a screen - almost Zombie-like...we are very different today though (ahem). This song won a Grammy in 1990 for Best Rock performance.Clip below..
