There are multiple artists named The Common Cold: 1. A three piece instrumental band from Boston, MA. They were active from about 2000 to about 2004 during which they released a 3 song demo, two full length records on Action Driver, and a song for a Mister Records compilation. The first full length was self titled and the second was titled "Bleep...Bleep...Bloop." They often fell into the post-rock or math-rock genre. Bandmember Kevin Micka continues to release music as Animal Hospital.
