The Hogyssey

The Hogyssey is the third album from rock band Spacehog.

The album was released on compact disc by Artemis Records on 10 April 2001. The title track is a rock arrangement of Richard Strauss's Also Sprach Zarathustra, similar to Eumir Deodato's "Also Sprach Zarathustra (2001)". The album was recorded at Ardent Studios in Memphis, Tennessee.

The Hoggyssey went through several name changes. The original name was This Is America and later named 2001: A Space Hogyssey after the title track. Then, after a lawsuit threat, the album was renamed again as The Hogyssey.
