'''Man or Astro-man?''' are a mostly instrumental band from Auburn, Alabama, known for combining the surf-rock style of the early sixties with various samples of old, kitschy sci-fi movies, with a decided punk edge that has become more prominent over time. They're also known for covering MysteryScienceTheater3000's "love theme". Their connection to the show runs fairly deep, as many of the aforementioned samples of kitsch sci-fi come from movies that were riffed on [[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 MST3K]], and Joel Hodgson has done pyrotechnics for the band's stage shows. The main members of the band go by Star Crunch (guitar, and vocals when those come up), Birdstuff (drums), and Coco the Electronic Monkey Wizard (bass & electronics). Other members have joined and left the band over the years.

* NoHitWonder: They've had one actual hit: "A Simple Text File", which is just a dot-matrix printer "singing". Otherwise, they make it on touring and their rabidly loyal fans.
