Masters of the Universe is a compilation by the English alternative rock band Pulp, released in 1994.


 [hide*1 Background


The compilation brings together the four Pulp singles released on Fire Records between 1985 and 1987, with the exception of "Silence" (originally from the "Master of the Universe" single), which was left off at Jarvis Cocker's request. The only difference of "Master of the Universe (sanitised version)" from the album one is that it replaces the word "masturbates" with "vegetates". The original version can be found on the album Freaks.

Almost all tracks from this compilation were included on Freaks 2012 reissue bonus disc. The two tracks that are not featured are "They Suffocate at Night" (appears on the album itself) and "Master of the Universe (sanitised version)" (the album version appears on the album itself).
