Hadrons are what you get if you mix a lot of quarks and get them to stick together. Some hadrons are baryons, that's protons and neutrons, other hadrons are mesons which are unstable quark-antiquark pairs.

Note that the muon used to be called the mu meson, before quark theory was developed. It is no longer considered a meson, and is now classified as a lepton.
