'''Living Colour''' is an American FunkMetal band from UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity, formed in 1983. A prominent black band of that movement, which also included Music/JanesAddiction, Music/FaithNoMore, Music/{{Fishbone}}, Music/{{Primus}}, Music/RedHotChiliPeppers, and 24-7 Spyz in the late 1980's, Living Colour rose to fame with their debut album ''Vivid'' in 1988. Stylistically, the band's music is a creative fusion influenced by HeavyMetal, {{Funk}}, HardRock, Free Jazz, HardcorePunk, and HipHop, containing lyrics that attack the Eurocentrism and racism of America. Although the band scored a number of hits, they are best remembered for their anthemic single "Cult of Personality," which won a Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance in 1989, and their highest charting single "Type." They were also named Best New Artist at the 1989 MTV Video Music Awards. After disbanding in 1995, Living Colour reunited in 2000.

* OneHitWonder: For "Cult of Personality." Although "Glamour Boys" also reached the Top 40, that song may not even be their second most well known song.



* RevivalByCommercialization: "Cult of Personality" popped up in ''[[VideoGame/GuitarHero Guitar Hero III]]'' and ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas,'' but when pro wrestler Wrestling/CMPunk switched to this theme (which he used in Wrestling/RingOfHonor) in Wrestling/{{WWE}} in the midst of a red-hot storyline and persona change, it resulted in the song cracking the Top 200 on the iTunes download list and increased airplay on major rock stations such as KROQ. As a Thank You, Will Calhoun contacted WWE to perform the song at ''Wrestling/WrestleMania 29'' for CM Punk, to which WWE wholeheartedly agreed.

Not to be confused with the American TV show ''[[Series/InLivingColor In Living Color!]]''. If it helps: Living Colour use the British spelling of "colour", and the TV show uses the [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment American]] one.
