Throwback: “Nobody’s Real” by Powerman 5000!

Back in 1999 Powerman 5000 released their commercial break through album in “Tonight The Starts Revolt!” with huge singles “Nobody’s Real” and “When Worlds Collide” helping it achieve the success of over one million records sold Worldwide. Vocalist Michael Cummings aka Spider One had been somewhat under the shadow of his older brother Rob Zombie however while Zombie regularly visited B-Movie Horror themes, Spider took his band to the realms of science fiction from the 1950’s to build the bands image. Getting Static-X producer Ulrich Wild on board helped build the bands sound with all three bands having catchy riffs and glitchy electronics at their beating hearts. Who can argue with 12 studio records in their 30 year career to date? They may have had something of a revolving door of musicians in that time but they have certainly left their scorch marks on Planet Metal.
