It is adequate but not my thing.

I might give it a listen later as I do rather like synthpop including late eighties stuff.

Do you think this had any influence on Keen6's title? It is quite likely to have done.

I was thinking the same question, Benvolio. Was this song the first time "Aliens Ate my..." was used, or was it already a trope?

It's a meme, not a trope. Also I don't know. It's surprising how poorly memes, inside jokes and the likes are documented.
