According to a member of the Singapore 60s band, the group was actually inspired by a science-fiction Japanese movie produced in 1957 (image) by Toho Studios.
The group loved the name and unanimously agreed to call themselves, The Mysterians. The movie was a 60s sci-fi genre, and like Godzilla it had a great following. Great movie, great band, great name!
