Can't believe this thread is on page two and nobody's mentioned Hawkwind yet. Sample song titles: "Quark, Strangeness and Charm", "Mutation Zone", "Fahrenheit 451", "Love In Space", "Hyperdrive", "The Nazca", "Veterans Of A Thousand Psychic Wars", "Time We Left This World Today", "Spiral Galaxy 28948", "Space Is Deep", "Space Love", "Space Sex", "Space Dust", "Space Chase"...
