Living Colour

Living Colour is an American funk metal band from New York City, formed in 1983.

A prominent all-African American band of that movement, which also included Jane's Addiction, Faith No More, Primus, and 24-7 Spyz in the late 1980s, Living Colour rose to fame with their debut album Vivid in 1988.

Stylistically, the band's music is a creative fusion influenced by heavy metal, funk, hard rock, free jazz, hardcore punk and hip hop, 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.

Living Colour was ranked #70 on VH1's 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock.
