RUSH is awesome and I'm glad to see they made the list!!!   But if there is a Sci-Fi band out there, it would have to be the Blue Oyster Cult.  Just about everysong they did was dedicated to the Sci-Fi genre.

"She's a Sleestak", "Mr. Spock" by the Nerf Herders (the same guys who did the opening theme music to Buffy the Vampire Slayer tv series).

If you're going for the song Twilight Zone then you gotta go with Golden Earring

And as Superman Tributes go I tend to point to Five for Fightings song.

As for Black Sabbath's Iron Man, I'm not sure which I prefer: its use as theme song for the movies, or its use as the entrance music for The Road Warriors.

Superman's Song by the Crash Test Dummies.  It mentions Tarzan and Solomon Grundy.  Huge song in Canada in early 90s.

I agree that BOC's Veteran of a Thousand Psychic Wars is perfect for this list.  I first heard on the Heavy Metal movie ST.

Great list.

Just curious, is Superman probably the most referenced superhero in pop culture music?  You could probably make a whole album of cover songs that mention him.

There's also "I Am Superman" by REM.

Can't go wrong with Rush. They also have a song called the Twilight Zone you could throw up in that.

Fu Manchu has "Saturn III", "Sleestak", "Godzilla" (BOC cover), and a whole album titled "In Search Of". It is imo the best fuzzed-out, hard rock, based on science fiction you will ever hear.

I'm by no means a music buff, but I might be inclined to replace #15 with two of my all-time favorite Weird Al Yankovich songs "Star Wars Cantina" and "The Saga Begins".

I'm not sure if this is accurate or not, but I heard that he wrote "The Saga Begins" before The Phantom Menace was ever released, and all of his information came from scouring the internet & etc.  If so, that makes it even more impressive, most impressive.

There's even a wiki for it:
