As we've recently added artificial grass to our product offerings, we thought we'd have a bit of fun compiling a list of songs with the word grass in the title.
Not in the lyrics as there'd be far too many and although an occasional one may have slipped through, not in the sense of the UK slang for marijuana or someone who tells about the bad deeds of another (also known as a snitch).
What we found was that perhaps not surprisingly, grass is an extremly popular theme in country music, but also in soul, R&B and hip hop, etc..
Note, some songs may have many covers, but we've only included the major ones below.

Band With The Word Grass In The Title
So which one was our favourite? There's a couple of golden oldies in there, but if we're honest, we hadn't heard of some of them.
So, can we cheat and choose a band with the word grass in the title?
In which case, it would have to be Supergrass, as featured above.
Soft and comfortable to walk on, just like the real thing, but without the maintenance.
