Mars Attacks

Album: American Psycho (1997)

Songfacts®:

  • This song is based on the film Mars Attacks!, which is based on a card series by Topps that was criticized by parents and was pulled from shelves, but was very popular with children. A spinoff card series, Dinosaurs Attack!, was also made, yet was very inaccurate in describing certain dinosaurs and creatures.
  • This was going to be used in the film, but it was not delivered in time for filming. >>
