Man or Astro-man? is an American surf rock group that formed in Auburn, Alabama in the early 1990s and came to prominence over the following decade. Primarily instrumental, Man or Astro-man? blended the surf rock style of the early 1960s like that of Dick Dale and The Spotnicks with the new wave and punk rock sounds of the late 1970s and early 1980s.

Mission Into Chaos! is a revised soundtrack to the lost B-movie/Bond imitation flick of the same name. On this true collector's curio, Man or Astro-Man? brilliantly combines sci-fi sonics and surf music to build a gritty, over-the-top secret agent atmosphere. On the Secret Agent Side, "Name of Numbers"' evil groove could be vintage Dick Dale, and "Of Sex and Demise" sounds like a sock hop, snap-along dance number for space aliens.
Man or Astroman? claimed to be not the space-music surf-rockers they appear, but instead, unlikely emissaries from another galaxy who accidentally crashed their spaceship near Auburn, Alabama. Since that day in 1992, Man or Astroman? have released over two dozen seven-inch singles and seven full-length albums of dizzying, instrumental guitar virtuosity wedded to sounds derived from the quasi-modern technology of a Hammond organ or Theremin.
