Well that song hasn't been used lately, I'm expecting them to because the are trying to make it like a classic Godzilla movie but only older Godzilla fan know that song. So I guess they will.

I kind of hope they use it during the end credits. They played Black Sabbath's "Iron Man" during the end credits of the first movie, so why not Godzilla too? Either that, or Akira Ifukube's original theme.

I certainly hope so.

Hell no. Their music sucks too. Something of a nod to Akira Ifukube would be much more fitting than that crap.

I think we also need to take in to consideration if the song would fit with the movie. If the movie is a little more tongue & cheek with fun antics like [i]Iron Man[/i], then it might be appropriate. If it's a more serious, character driven and hard-nosed movie, then it would be vastly inappropriate to have any form of rock music in it. You don't throw a song in a movie, "just 'cause."

Agree with Gman2887. Hopefully the movie's tone is such that the blue oyster cult song is not used.

As a life long Godzilla fan, and with all respect to Blue Oyster Cult, my mind and mood is always set to the music used in "Godzilla 1985" and "Godzilla vs. Gigan". No matter what other G-movie I'm watching, that music just sets my heart racing and ready for the blue fire and fight scenes that made me forget that this was sci-fi and that there were people in costumes. I humbly suggest looking up those movies, listen to the music, and really hear what Ifukube was transmitting.

Akira Ifukube didn't score Godzilla 1985, and if memory serves me right, none of his more iconic Godzilla tunes even make it into the movie. I do think Godzilla 1985 is a good score to listen to for tone, but I can't say the same about Godzilla vs Gigan (even though I like that movie a quite a bit).

No, definitely not, unless it's playing on some classic rock station in the background in some obscure scene. That song is cornier now than when it came out. The Director already said that the movie has a serious tone to it.

Something Real I look at human beings as an extension of the universe - just as every life-form. Life is an amazing thing.

Something Real I have been wondering - what is a human exactly? Is it a natural progression of evolution?
