  • Three of the songs from the album have samples of Godzilla's roar, "Come With Me", "Deeper Underground"[1] and "Brain Stew" - the latter even has "(Godzilla Mix)" on the title to showcase this (the original version on the Green Day album Insomniac does not feature the roar).
  • Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl was excited at the prospect of contributing to a Godzilla movie and grouped with the band to record the new song "A320" (composed in Japan). Once Grohl saw the movie, he was disappointed at the film quality, while adding that given "A320" is possibly his favorite composition ever, its absence was helpful: "We went to that Godzilla movie when we were on tour. We found a theatre and went to see it and it was the worst movie we'd ever seen in our lives. And they played our song at the tail end of the end credits. That's my favourite placement for a Foo Fighters song ever!"[2][3]
  • Four music videos were made for the opening tracks of the album, three of which feature Godzilla:
    • "Come with Me" (Puff Daddy feat. Jimmy Page): The video starts with Godzilla having been sighted outside Puffy's building, which is then destroyed by an incoming bus (presumably kicked by the monster). After many clips from the film, the only new footage with Godzilla is in the final scene, as Puff Daddy performs on Times Square and the monster stares at the rapper (like he did with Nick Tatopoulos during the movie), and roars once Puffy turns his back at him.
    • "Deeper Underground" (Jamiroquai): At a screening of GODZILLA, the monster charges at the screen and breaks the fourth wall, making the water from the opening scene with the Japanese fishing vessel flood the theater.
    • "Heroes" (The Wallflowers): The Wallflowers perform in a New York City apartment during Godzilla's attack. At one point, Godzilla passes through the street, and his tail destroys the windows. In the final scene, his roar can be heard.
    • "No Shelter" (Rage Against the Machine): The music video does not feature Godzilla, but does show variations of the film's tagline, in a dig at the film as well as playing into the typical anti-consumerist and anti-imperialist messaging in Rage Against The Machine songs. The lyrics refer to the film as "pure mutherfuckin filler / To keep ya eyes off the real killer."
