Superman is Dead (sometimes referred to simply as S.I.D) is a punk rock band hailing from Bali, formed in Kuta. The band has 3 members, namely Bobby Kool (lead vocal, guitar), Eka Rock (bass and backing vocal), Jerinx (drummer).

The Name Superman Is Dead[edit]

The name 'Superman is Dead' started its evolution from Stone Temple Pilot's "Superman Silvergun". It was changed to "Superman is Dead" because the band agreed that nobody is perfect.

SID formed in 1995, drawn by their common interests of Green Day and NOFX. Their influences soon extended to the punk 'n roll genre a la Supersuckers, Living End and Social Distortion.

Warped Tour 2009[edit]

June – July 2009, Superman Is Dead held an American tour, playing 16 concerts in 16 cities. 11 of these shows were on the ‘Vans Warped Tour’ and the last 5 gigs were titled ‘From Bali With Rock’.
