* SpiritualSuccessor: Of all musicians, DrakeBell seems to have taken a few cues from Jellyfish on his "It's Only Time" album. Hell, he even goes as far to cover "Joining a Fanclub" on his live concert DVD.

'''Jellyfish''' are a San Franciscan PowerPop band founded by childhood friends, vocalist/drummer/multi-instrumentalist Andy Sturmer and keyboardist Roger Joseph Manning Jr. in 1990, from the ashes of AlternativeRock [[TheEighties 1980s]] band Beatnick Beatch. The group image was decidedly retro, a deliberately kitschy, brightly colorful, psychedelic look with gaudy bellbottoms, Dr. Seuss hats, frilly shirts, lollipops and umbrellas, a Flanderization of Music/TheBeatles' ''WesternAnimation/YellowSubmarine''-style fashions meeting a HannaBarbera cartoon come to life.

The band failed to get much success in a mainstream way in the era of {{Grunge}}, and they [[ShortRunners only produced two albums in their short lifetime]]. They are known for [[OneHitWonder one hit]], the [[ThePartridgeFamily Partridge Family]]-like "Baby's Coming Back", promoted by a {{HannaBarbera}}-produced AnimatedMusicVideo.

* RevolvingDoorBand: Andy Sturmer and Roger Manning were the only two members to stay the course of the band. Interestingly enough, [[FaceOfTheBand they were the defacto leaders of the band]].
