It was never actually stated for what deed Yar was offended and obligated to take up revenge.
FeeFiFoFoTheFifeFifeBrown
I didn't know either.

UNTIL TODAY!

I'm not entirely sure who they want revenge against, humans or the other aliens? Or both?

Needs an "A Mighty Wind" tag.

Yes, that would be very now-tro!

It reminds me, for some reason, of "Ballad of the Green Berets". I pictured SSgt Barry Sadler urging on a brave Galaxian clone.

There was also an Asteroids album with the same futuristic synth voices in the songs.

The 365 Days Project has that album and tons of other wonderful oddities.

I picked up both the Pac Man Fever and TNMT albums years ago from a cut-out bin, but neither was quite bad enough to be this glorious.

Okay, "Frogger's Lament" was a gem.

who would buy or listen to this and enjoy it

FeeFiFoFoTheFifeFifeBrown
I guess it depends on what you mean by "enjoy." There are not many New Wave folk songs about laser-shooting space bugs.

I imagine a fly with a cowboy hat walking through the center of a dusty ghost town.
