'''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 Series/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.

** Taken UpToEleven when they attempted to do The Band Minus The Band. In 1998 and 1999, the group gathered several musical friends together into two cover bands (one all-female) who went on tour, playing the group's music and claiming to be "clones" of the original Man or Astro-man?. One of the female Astromen has since graduated to the actual band's lineup.
