Rocket Science is a studio album from Apoptygma Berzerk. It follows the same path of synth-rock trends as the band's last album You and Me Against the World. The first single was "Apollo (Live On Your TV)" followed by "Green Queen". It was also their final album on Gun Records, released one week before the label ceased operating.

The album's theme is heavily influenced by the novel 1984 by George Orwell, as well as various conspiracy theories and The Matrix movies. The album's lyrics reflect Stephan's world view and his personal life and views.

The album also features guest vocals on multiple tracks from Benji Madden from Good Charlotte, and Amanda Palmer from The Dresden Dolls. The final track Trash is a cover of a 1996 single by Britpop band Suede.
