Living Colour is a hard rock group formed in New York city in 1984. They signed to Epic Records in 1987 and released their first album Vivid in 1988.

They are linked to the punk/funk/metal movement of the late 1980s typified by bands such as Fishbone, Jane's Addiction, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Faith No More, and 24-7 Spyz.
