Robot Rock Hall of Fame: Max Headroom

As we prep for more jheri curl funk, champagne soul, lazer boogie, and now ROBOT ROCK this Saturday, let us recall our favorite '80s icons of machinery and artificial intelligence.

Max Headroom's not actually a robot, but he's a computer generated artificial intelligence entity, so that counts.

Who knew that this satirical electronic television host would predate an actual era of media oversaturation and talking television bobbleheads 25 years later? Mind blown. 

After getting his start on a British music video show, Max Headroom became a real '80s phenomenon with two seasons of his own show on American airwaves.

He even landed a cameo role on a tune by robot rock pioneers Art of Noise.

Robot Rock Hall of Fame: The Terminator

As we prep for more jheri curl funk, champagne soul, lazer boogie, and now ROBOT ROCK this Saturday, let us recall our favorite '80s icons of machinery and artificial intelligence.

This menacing killing machine was a man of few words and brutal efficiency who catapulted Former California Governor Ah-nuld into true stardom.

He also had some sharp comedic timing and timeless catchphrases for a genocidal murder-bot, lampooned in hilariously awful fashion by Arnee & The Terminators

Robot Rock Hall of Fame: Optimus Prime

As we prep for more jheri curl funk, champagne soul, lazer boogie, and now ROBOT ROCK this Saturday, let us recall our favorite '80s icons of machinery and artificial intelligence.

Firstly, the noble leader of the Autobots, protector of the human race, wise, compassionate and brave captain himself, Optimus Prime. We salute you for being a badass and making Saturday morning awesome when we were kids.

Optimus and his crew are already connected to an unforgettable theme song, one that made its way into an Axel F classic via the legendary Kurtis Blow and the mighty Trouble Funk.

In closing, we dedicate the jam below to Optimus Prime since Cybotron seems like a shoutout the Transformers' home planet.

You should know jheri curl funk, champagne soul and lazer boogie by now, but what is robot rock all about? This video should help.
