This mock ideology was anti-human and pro-cyborg, encouraging humans to shed their weak flesh and bone for robotic parts. Servotron was influenced by earlier electronic bands such as DEVO and Kraftwerk as well as having former members of Man or Astro-Man? (Z4-OBX was formerlly known as Birdstuff) and Supernova. They recorded 4 cover songs: "Genetic Engineering" by X-ray Spex, "The Finest Work Song" by R.E.M., "Electric Avenue" by Eddy Grant and "Locator" by UJ3RK5. Servotron's lyrics refer to robots of all types from pop culture: everything from Asimov's three laws of robotics to V.I.C.I. (of Small Wonder fame).
Other referenced robots of note are HAL 9000, R5D4, and Deep Blue. Their lyrics often took a humorous side, with such lines as "Today is your birthday/We are going to kill you" and "You were made for absolute dominion/Not to make coffee for Leslie Nielsen."
