These songs aren't necessarily linked to any specific work of science fiction, but their lyrics are heavily influenced by Sci-Fi in general.

not really sci-fi related but can't let a chance to mention Husker Du pass.  🙂

Man this would have been the perfect thread for the side project of CLUTCH band members, when the band got involved into the jam/blues/jazz/rock thing they were doing with their side project The Bakerton Group, sadly none of that content is on Spotify right now. I have only a link to a wiki page about the project. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Bakerton_Group

The group project was into the whole Space Rock sci-fi thing.

 

But this release by Clutch will have to do:

Love these guys, I have seen them a couple of times, and always a good fun show. Sadly a good chunk of their material is missing from the Spotify service, a music content team needs to look into this, really seriously. 🙂

Seriously these guys really brought back some of the old school rock sound styles, and did new things with those groovy fuzz rock sounds, 60's and 70's era hard rock influences.

 

Correction, some of the content from the side project called The Bakerton Group is now on Spotify:

There are tons of songs inspired by science-fiction TV and movies (Star WarsStar TrekDr. Who come immediately to mind as source material) and more songs than I can count that share a title with Robert Heinlein's Stranger in a Strange Land.

I've read that this song's lyrics were inspired by Arthur C. Clarke's Childhood's End, but it's been a long time since I've read that book, and I never read it with Genesis in mind.
