Superman Is Dead (SID), didirikan di Bali pada tahun 1995 oleh Bobby Kool (lead vocal, guitar, graphic designer), Eka Rock (bass and backing vocal) dan Jrx (drummer). Tiga cowok ini menggemari Green Day dan NOFX, dan belakangan mereka lebih terpengaruh oleh musik punk 'n roll dari Supersuckers, Living End dan Social Distortion.

Awalnya band mereka bernama Superman Silvergun, nama yang diambil dari lagu milik Stone Temple Pilot`s. Namun mereka memutuskan untuk ganti nama menjadi Superman Is Dead karena mereka yakin bahwa tak ada orang yang sempurna di dunia ini.

SID sempat memproduksi tiga album secara independen, yaitu Case 15 (1997), Superman is Dead (1999) dan Bad Bad Bad (mini album, 6 tracks - 2002) sebelum bergabung dengan Sony-BMG Indonesia pada bulan Maret 2003.

Bersama Sony-BMG, SID sudah merilis empat album, yaitu Kuta Rock City (2003), The Hangover Decade (2004), Black Market Love (2006), dan Angel & The Outsiders (2009).
