My Favorite "Black" Bands

Obviously I'm referring to bands that have the word "black" in their names, not bands comprising of black people. Anyways, the color black is cool. Let's face it, there is no color cooler than black. Rock stars don't wear green leather jackets. They don't sport yellow lens sunglasses. Black is cool, and that's a fact.

So it's no wonder that a lot of bands decide to use the color in their band names. While many other trends in band names have popped up here and there (crystal, wolf, girls, fuck, whale, etc.), "black" has been a part of good band names for decades.

This list celebrates my favorite bands that deem themselves (and actually are) cool enough to use the world's coolest color (or shade--whatever) in their name. Sit back, and enjoy these really cool people.

1. Black Sabbath
2. Big Black
3. Black Francis/Frank Black
4. Godspeed You! Black Emperor
5. Black Dice
6. Black Flag
7. Black Devil Disco Club
8. Black Nasty
9. Brightblack Morning Light
10. The Black Lips
11. Black Uhuru
12. Black Keys
13. Black Sheep
14. Black Star
15. Black Leotard Front

That's what I think. I'll try to do a list for "magenta", but it might be tougher.
