Cool Silly (simplified Chinese: 傻酷乐团; traditional Chinese: 傻酷樂團; pinyin: Sakoo Yuètuán) is a Taiwanese-American mainstream pop trio consisting of producer/singer Tone (仲維軍), singer/composer Ray Liu (劉軒蓁) and rapper/actor Leeway(藍力威). Renowned artist Tone (仲維軍) formed his own band after releasing his first debut album titled "我的6:57am", and recruited the other two members to form Cool Silly. They are well known throughout Taiwan with their hit "Fly" (我飛), which was the theme song for the 2010 Taipei International Flora Exposition (臺北國際花卉博覽會). The song attracted many fans, which led to Cool Silly's debut in 2010 with the release of their first digital album, Cool Silly: The Prelude. Since their debut, they have often been compared with the Popular Taiwanese rock group, F.I.R., because of the similar formation of band members and attractive performance personalities.

The name Cool Silly comes from the band's ideology that "a person can't be cool unless they're silly as well". The band insists that the personality of their music is not only "cool" but "silly" as well.
