Of their imitators, the best are probably 1980s space rockers Underground [[HeavyMetalUmlaut Zerø]].

They've had an insane amount of members over the course of their career. Former band member Del Dettmar estimated that by 1994, there had been some ''thirty-five'' people who at one point or another had been official members of Hawkwind. Taken from the band's unnofficial history, there are in fact ''more''. Perm any thirty-five you like from:

* PuttingTheBandBackTogether: the ill-fated disaster that was the Hawkestra. Getting ''every'' ex-member of the band back on stage with the current line-up for a series of gigs was an inspired idea - on paper. It was never repeated.

* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Everywhere from a 1 all the way up to a hard 6 / borderline 7- they weren't ''quite'' Metal, but they could get pretty heavy (it doesn't hurt that [[Music/{{Motorhead}} Lemmy]] was in the band for a while). They also did a lot of subdued stuff, as well- and with all the EpicRocking they indulged in, often in the same song.
* NewSoundAlbum: Present but [[DownplayedTrope downplayed]]- they definitely have a signature sound, but the different albums all have differing levels of emphasis on the spacey side vs. the hard rocking side of the band's sound, as well as varying levels of production polish (studio albums recorded in the 80s, for example, are usually noticeably more polished vs. the rawer sound of most of the 70s albums). As well, in the 80s they were heavier on the synths.
