Songs are being used for educational and promotional purposes only. It’s amazing he’s only #6, but this is a genre that has amazing number of giants.

It features advanced science, such as information technology and cybernetics, coupled with a degree of breakdown or radical change in the social order. The cutting-edge, nonprint media in many cases drew ideas and imagery from the older science-fiction stories and illustrations of the 1930s and 1940s.
