"Being in a band is as close as I could get to being a superhero," explains Powerman 5000 frontman Spider, whose raging onstage persona belies his natural introspection. "That's what this band's all about for me - it's like being in The Avengers or The Defenders."

Blurring the line between fact and fiction, PM5K's songs are soundtracks to the bizarre ... Read more in Amazon's Powerman 5000 Store

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

If you think the Powerman 5000 hit "When Worlds Collide" sounds an awful lot like "Dragula" off Rob Zombie's Hellbilly Deluxe, don't blame Powerman 5000 frontman Spider--after all, it's in the genes. Zombie and Spider are siblings, and blood is thicker than a whole stack of Bibles. Fortunately, Powerman 5000 are much more than a blasphemous chip off the old gravestone. Sure, many of the rhythms on Tonight the Stars Revolt! are augmented by electronic samples, and the vocals are shouted over a battering-ram assault of drums, but the tunes weren't conceived in the same decayed crypt as Zombie's. Spider is actually more attuned to the power of melody than his big brother. His influences include new-wave bands like Blondie and the Cars (there's even a cover of the Cars' "Let the Good Times Roll"), as well as alternative rockers like Helmet and Girls Against Boys. Instead of focusing on themes of horror and the supernatural as Zombie does, Powerman 5000 seek inspiration from B-grade science fiction films from the '60s, making Tonight the Stars Revolt! more like a futuristic fun house than a genuine freak show. --Jon Wiederhorn

Customer Reviews

This song is one of the reasons this CD is so good.
Spider Two
This is by far my favorite PM5K album, it has the goods. this is what people thought 1999 was going to be like back in the 50's, just plain fun to listen to.
For once I've bought a CD and like every song on it.

Tonite the Stars Revolt! is not a explicit content cd. I have listened to this cd several times and each song several times and there is no reason that this cd should have a explicit content sticker on it. It is not neccessary. So for parents who are reading this for their kids who want this cd and don't want them to have a profane cd this cd isn't one of them.

The very first Powerman 5000 song I heard was "When Worlds Collide." At that point I though this band was nothing short of Metal geniuses! I spied with my musical eye, "Tonight the Stars Revolt!" by these dudes, so I thought, "hell, why not?" and bought the CD. I was pleased with what I found but not amazed as I thought I would be...allow me to explain.

What I expected was something like a 21st Century "White Zombie." However, in place of the dark and odd appeal of "White Zombie" was a slighlty more humorous and equally as odd inertia. That doesn't detract from the album by the way, I sometimes enjoy a bit of "humour" or even a bit of blatant cheesiness in my Metal! My favourite song was "When Worlds Collide" at first, but after hearing track 6, "Tonight the Stars Revolt!" I quickly changed my mind. This song has an awesome, bone-crushing riff that pulls "When Worlds Collide" down a few notches. The song pounds in the beginning and then falls off and reaches a climax once again with the lyrics that shout, scream and whisper. The song has a great range of techniques and pretty much summarizes what Powerman 5000 is really capable of.

Another song that is a standout track in my opinion is "They Know Who You Are." It's similar in structure to track 6, but is more energetic and erratic in a sense. It has some jarring guitar parts and a couple of quieter parts that build tension in the song. It's really terrific and definitely a song to headbang to. "Operate, Annihilate" opens up with a cool, groovy base and is followed by crunching guitars at regular intervals. The rhythm is tight and the band demonstrate how slow songs and changing time signatures can be highly appealing. Yet another really awesome song.

Stepping out of the rap-metal sounds of their minor label releases, Powerman 5000 came onto the scene with their hit "When Worlds Collide". In reality, when this album was released, two worlds collided: the real world and the world of Powerman 5000.
Vocalist Spider One (brother of former White Zombie, now solo singer Rob Zombie) sets the eerie and angry mood with his imaginative, science fiction-type lyrics and vocals, ranging from deep singing/rapping to violent bursts of yelling. For this album, the band became a two guitar assault of hard hitting metal power chords, courtesy of guitarists M33 and Adam 12. Backing them are bassist Dorian, who bass lines rock the set, and drummer Al, who pounds away and rocks it behind the kit. With a change in their sound, style and look, the band pumped out rough metal songs with odd inventive tones and lyrical imagery.
The first actual song, Supernova Goes Pop, is a small insight into the power of the album. This song is hard and just in-your-face. When Worlds Collide is the song everyone knows with its anthem-like chorus and awesome riffs. Nobody's Real is a bit different from the first two tracks, seeing as it is not as hard. It has more of an electronic and robotic feel than a hard, metal edge but the drumming is awesome and the vocals and lyrics are great. Tonight The Stars Revolt is another hard-edged song in the formula of the first 2 tracks with a lot of fire behind it. The next three tracks follow suit, supply thick riffs and harsh rhythm. Blast Off To Nowhere is one of the best tracks on the album. Starting off with some great drumming and Spider singing, the song explodes into a screamfest Spider and brother Rob Zombie. This is an awesome track with a whole lot of energy.

I would have to agree with the guy who said it was a "sci-fi metal band." They are. When World's Collide is the best song in the world! The other really good songs are Supernova Goes Pop, Nobody's Real, Tonight The Stars Revolt!, Automatic, Operate/Annihilate, Blast Off To Nowhere, Good Times Roll, and Watch The Sky For Me is pretty cool. All the others are cool, but the others are just better. And I can't believe it! They say f@#% ONCE in the entire CD and the dumb marketing people slapped a Parental Advisory on it! Hell, my mom and dad have a Kenny Loggins CD and he says f@#% on it, but is there an Explicit Content on his CD?! No! Gah, that pisses me off! Geez, Orgy, Staind, and Coal Chamber swear more than them in their CD's and they don't have one! Man, PM5K deserve better than that.

Powerman 5000, Tonight the Stars Revolt, is an excellent CD. I am listening to "When Worlds Collide" as I write this review. Here is a description of the songs.
An Eye is Upon You: It is just a voice giving an introduction to the CD.
Supernova Goes Pop: A very awesome song. It includes very powerful guitar playing.
When Worlds Collide: This is my favorite song on the CD. It is slow at parts and heavy at parts, but though the entire song, the drums and guitar are awesome.
Nobodys Real: One of the softer songs. but it is still awesome.
System 11:11: A very short song, with Spider1 talking very softly.
Tonight the Stars Revolt: The title song is very catchy and most people who like this type of music will like this song.
AUTOmatic:An extremely heavy song that I listen to repeatedly.
The Son of X-51: Very similar to AUTOmatic.
Operate Annihilate: I like this song because I like how Spider1 changes his voice.
Blast off to Nowhere: I love this song because It has Spider1's brother, Rob Zombie, in it. It just sounds awesome.
They know Who You Are: This song is very interesting and loud. One of the best.
Good Times Roll: This is pretty cool, but if you listen to it too much it gets boring.
Watch the Sky For Me: A cool song. The beginning features the same voice from "An Eye Is Upon You."
On the back of this CD, next to the track listings, the story is really cool.
