The Seven Best Godzilla Songs NOT by Blue Oyster Cult

Categories: Whatever

Sepultura, "Biotech Is Godzilla"
We don't talk about Sepultura nearly enough on Rocks Off, and for my money Paulo Jr. has never gotten the credit he deserves as a near-perfect metal bassists. This track is fairly typical, comparing the all sorts of the corporate industry to the destruction of the King of Monsters, but it's fun all hell on top of that.

Ballboy, "Godzilla vs The Island of Manhattan (With You and I Somewhere in Between)"
Let's take it down a notch. Ballboy is the sort of band you listen to as you drive to buy a rope to hang yourself, but are hoping you see something life-affirming to keep you going a little longer on the way. "Godzilla" is the touching tale of two lovers trapped in New York as a monster makes landfall and begins destroying everything. It's a testament to love in the face of long odd, and the odds don't get longer than giant atomic thunder lizard.

Finally, as we head off to the movie theater please remember one thing... even if Godzilla isn't all you hope for it could always be worse. Godzooky worse.

Jef has a new story, a tale of headless strippers and The Rolling Stones, available now in Broken Mirrors, Fractured Minds. You can also connect with him on Facebook.
