The Phenomenauts, also know as Earth’s bravest space band, are an indie rock band based out of Earth’s capital, Oakland California. Formed in 2000, the Phenomenauts gained notoriety when they squeaked their way onto the Warped Tour in 2003. Their music was such a hit with the fans that they were invited back the following two years. In 2005 they elected to instead tour with The Aquabats!, which is where I first saw them.
Much like Nerdcore Hip-Hop was invented by musicians such as MC Frontalot and mc chris, The Phenonenauts have branded their own style of music, Rocket Roll, with a majority of their lyrics pertaining to science fiction.
Of their three full length albums, I recommend checking out Re-Entry. There are a few good tracks on Rockets and Robots as well. Earth is the Best and Progress vs. Pettiness would be a couple solid tracks to listen to if you’re not into buying an entire album before hearing any of their music. Their music can also teach you a little. Earth is the Best is full of facts about the planets in the Solar System.
