Additional Music

For Godzilla 1985, the American re-edit of The Return of Godzilla, New World Pictures added tracks from Christopher Young's score for Def-Con 4 to the soundtrack of the film. The legal complications caused by this music's inclusion has been cited by Kraken Releasing co-founder Matt Greenfield as one of the reasons why Godzilla 1985 could not be included on his company's DVD and Blu-ray releases of The Return of Godzilla.[1] The titles of the tracks are "A Message from Home," "Armageddon," "I Can't Go On," "The Juggernaut," "Defense Condition," and "The Liberation of Fort Liswell."[2] An additional track is untitled, as it was not used for the film.

"Ghost Planet"
"Armageddon"
"I Can't Go On"
"The Liberation of Fort Liswell," used in the end credits medley along with several Reijiro Koroku tracks
