Saturday Morning Apocalypse[1][3] is the second studio album by the metal/power metal band Powerglove, released on September 28, 2010, by E1 Music.[1] It strays from Powerglove's usual brand of video game metal, and instead centers around TV, cartoon and movie themes that the band grew up with.[1][3] This is the band's first release on E1 Music.[1] A music video for "Batman" was released on July 28, 2011.
