Below we present – mostly with a very basic info – various music bands that have turtle names, we also show some of their album covers, those with turtle motifs (other than just the turtle name of the band).

The Turtles
The Turtles – Probably the most famous of the “turtle bands”, even if not by name, but from their very popular song “Happy Together”. They created in the style of rock and pop. Initially, they used a name the Tyrtles, but this one didn’t catch on. They make extensive use of turtle symbolism, in the band’s logo or on their records. In the songs themselves, however, we have not found turtles so far. The band’s official website.

Mock Turtles
English band, founded in Middleton (Greater Manchester) in 1985. The style in which it is created by Indie Rock, the most famous song of the band is “Can You Dig It?”. The name probably refers to mock turtle, characters from Alice in Wonderland, and, possibly, to the above-mentioned “The Turtles”.
