When Worlds Collide (Powerman 5000 song)
“When Worlds Collide” is a song by the band Powerman 5000 from their album Tonight the Stars Revolt!. The song is virtually always the last song to be played at concerts. It is one of the band’s most well-known songs and has been used in the video games Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2, WWE Smackdown! vs. Raw, and in the 2000 film Little Nicky. It is also used as the entrance music for Purdue Boilermakers home college football games played at Ross–Ade Stadium in West Lafayette, Indiana. Spider One has stated that the song is about social classes. In 2016 the band accused Square Enix of stealing the song for use in their popular MMO Final Fantasy XIV.
