songs about robots

alright, i am toying with the idea of a robot cd, with songs about robots, because there are some really really good ones. but i am by no means familiar with all of them. so what are some good ones? or just really wacky ones?

Flaming Lips - Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots
Flaming Lips - One More Robot/Sympathy 3000-21
Grandaddy - Jed the Humanoid
Radiohead - Paranoid Android
Anthony Rother - Destroy Him My Robots
El-P - Stepfather Factory

What about a song by the group Ima Robot? Would that count? I really like the songs I've heard by them. I'd recommend "A Is for Action."
