Their name was originally Green Jello, named as such because of their dislike for that particular flavor and because they thought it accurately described their musical sound.
They had to change it to Green Jelly after a demand by General Foods, owner of the Jello trademark.
Thanks to hard rock band Gwar, Green Jelly began using elaborate homemade props and costumes in their live shows.
They once appeared on The Gong Show, claiming to be the world's worst band.
After releasing an "album" on video, with music videos accompanying each of the songs, they billed themselves as the world's first "video-only" rock band.
Manspeaker goes by the names Marshall "Duh" Staxx and Moronic Dicktator.
Former vocalist Gary Helsinger is now the Director A&R, West Coast, for Universal. He was also Tour Manager for A Perfect Circle.
The band has had anywhere from 75-115 members since its inception.
They hail from Kenmore, New Jersey.
Tool vocalist Maynard James Keenan and Tool drummer Danny Carey were both members of Green Jelly. That's where they met, before they broke off to form Tool.
