"(Rock) Superstar" is the second single from Cypress Hill's fifth studio album Skull & Bones. It was originally released as a double A-side with its standard rap counterpart on February 29, 2000 in the UK. An individual release was available starting sometime in April.
The song's music video is very similar to the previous single, "(Rap) Superstar", with the man picking up a ticket that says "Rock Superstar" on it. After giving the ticket to Sen Dog, the man enters into a fun house. A group of women dress up the man in a suit, before he wanders off. After seeing a testimony on a TV screen from Everlast, he encounters many record executives. At the video's climax, the man is chased out after going to a performance by Cypress Hill. As the man exits the fun house, it blows up behind him.
Coal Chamber bassist Nadja Peulen appears in a cameo as the bass player of the band performing at the song's climax.
