Roses Are Red, Violets Are Blue is the first album by the alternative rock band Trocadero, released in 2003. It contains "songs from and inspired by Red vs. Blue: The Blood Gulch Chronicles". The album was independently released, with manufacturing and distribution by Rooster Teeth Productions.

Several distinct musical techniques were implemented on the album. Most songs use polyphonic lead vocals, usually between Nico Audy-Rowland and Wendy Mittelstadt. Many of the electric instruments have a recognizable reverberation effect.

The album contains genre elements influenced by the blues, disco, spirituals, western narrative and types of rock.
