Powerman 5000 

To rephrase performance artist Laurie Anderson, "Which is more macho: A pineapple or Powerman 5000?" My guess is Powerman 5000. The industrial metal quartet arrived in the early 90's just as hair metal was frizzing out and grunge and rap-metal were picking up. Taking cues from sci-fi themed B-movies and groups like White Zombie (PM5K lead singer Spider One and Rob Zombie are brothers), the group hit a peak in '99 with hit single "When Worlds Collide." It seems like yesterday we were romping to platinum-selling CD "Tonight The Stars Revolt!" but unbelievably PM5K heads out to demolish North America with its 20th anniversary tour. Intrinsic opens the show.

Powerman 5000 performs Friday, September 21, 8 p.m. at Montage Music Hall, 50 Chestnut St. $20.
