"Superstar" is the title song from the 1970 rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice.

It was released as a single in 1969, before the album was completed. Sung by Murray Head with the Trindad Singers, it reached #78 on first release. Murray Head reached #14 in the U.S. with a single version in 1971.

It is sung by the spirit of Judas Iscariot, where he questions why Jesus chose to arrive in the manner that he did and if what happened to him was truly part of a divine plan. It is thus somewhat accusatory in nature and not the anthem that some take it to be. Nevertheless, along with "I Don't Know How to Love Him", it is the most well-known song from this production.
