Random Song of the Week -- Godzilla by Blue Oyster Cult

Released on their 1977 album Sepctres, Blue Oyster Cult’s Godzilla song was an FM radio hit and is today one of their best known tracks. It was glaringly omitted from the soundtrack to the 1998 American movie (they opted for a cover to Led Zepplin’s Kashmir, rather than obviously covering a song called Godzilla!). It was memorably used in TNT’s Monster Bash promos for their Godzilla marathons in the 90s. It’s probably the best tribute rock song to a fictional character and really captures the destructive feel of the big lizard.
