Trivia

  • Two of the songs have samples of Godzilla's roar, "Come with Me" 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).
  • "No Shelter" includes a scathing reference to the movie in RATM's trademark anti-imperialism stance ("Coca-Cola is back in the veins of Saigon / And Rambo too, he got a dope pair of Nikes on / And Godzilla, pure mutherfuckin FILLER / To keep ya eyes off the real killer...).
  • 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!".[1][2]
  • Three music videos were made for the opening tracks of the album, all 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 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.

I love how in the music video for Come With Me, Godzilla smashing a hole in Puff Daddy's wall triggers him to start aggressively rapping to the point where he ends up on a stage challenging Godzilla to a god damn fight.
