Robots have been hip long before pirates became the go-to oddity of choice. More specifically, their metallic reign began somewhere around 1996, when MST3K's only feature film was released and the musical coup of Captured! By Robots began. Background: Lowly human Jay Vance built robots with the intention of creating a rock band, but rather than submit to his rule, the robots revolted, pulled out his innards, and now force the rechristened JBOT to travel the globe and musically purport the inferiority of the human race. DRMBOT0110, GTRBOT666, AUTOMATOM, the three Headless Hornsmen, the Ape Which Hath No Name and Son of the Ape Which Hath No Name accompany JBOT in a make-fun mash of metal, rock, electronica, new-wave and good old-fashioned mind control. Riddle of Steel opens.
