The Melonheads are a group of fans of the Los Angeles Rams that attend games with a carved out watermelon placed on their head. The Melonheads are the West Coast equivalent of the Green Bay Packers Cheeseheads for their similar usage of food memorabilia on their heads.


The group first started with five people in 1985, when they were called the Fearsome Fivesome. The group grew to about a dozen members. The founder of the Melonheads, Lance Goldberg, was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame as part of the VISA Hall of Fans in 2000.[1] The Melonheads group have appeared more often at Rams games after the team relocated back to Los Angeles from St. Louis in 2016.
