Superman Was A Rocker is the 9th studio album from singer-songwriter Robert Pollard. It was released on January 29, 2008. It differs from Pollard's past solo albums in that it is very lo-fi in comparison to his more polished releases.
According to the Rockathon Music website:
"Robert Pollard's Superman Was A Rocker is a return to old ways for Bob. This mini-album (13 songs, 30 minutes) finds Bob using recording methods that he hasn't engaged in since the old GBV days.
Bob recently poured through a bunch of old cassette tapes of his and found some great instrumentals that he either wrote or co-wrote, and never used. He decided to go into the studio and put vocals (and melodies!) over them. The music spans a 20+ year period.
Due to the span of time and body of work from which the clips were accessed, many of the classic GBV alumni appear on this album; Tobin Sprout, Mitch Mitchell, Kevin Fennell, Doug Gillard, Nate Farley."
Superman Was a Rocker marks the first LP released by Pollard's Happy Jack Rock Records label .
