American band which was formed in 1989 in Costa Mesa, California. They’re best known for their song “Chewbacca” which was on the soundtrack to 1994 film Clerks.

Fun Facts:

– In 1996, they produced a TV show “Last In Space: A Show For Kids?”, which chronicled their adventures in a space van and included many of musical numbers. The show wasn’t picked up, but copies were distributed on VHS and still being sold at their shows (Wikipedia)

– They filed a lawsuit against CBS for the use of band’s name in television show “Rock Star”. On September 12, 2006 the judge ruled in favor of the original Supernova, granting their request for a preliminary injunction. The injunction kept the producers and musicians of Rock Star from performing, recording, or selling merchandise under the name “Supernova” pending the outcome of the lawsuit. As a result, the CBS band was simply renamed “Rock Star Supernova”. The lawsuit was dropped soon thereafter. (Wikipedia)
