  • The soundtrack mainly consisted of alternative rock songs, making it very different from the rest of the franchise. Only the last two tracks are taken from the film's musical score.
  • Two of the songs have samples of Zilla'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 *** 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 brand new song "A320" (composed, adequately, 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!".[2][3]
  • Three music videos were made for the opening tracks of the album, all of whom feature Zilla:
    • "Come with Me" (Puff Daddy feat. Jimmy Page): The video starts with Zilla been sighted outside Puffy's building, which is then destroyed by an incoming bus (presumably kicked by Zilla). After many clips from Godzilla, the only new footage with Zilla is in the final scene, as Puff Daddy performs on Times Square and the monster stares at the rapper (like he did with Nick Tatopolous during the movie), and roars once Puffy turns his back at him.
    • "Deeper Underground" (Jamiroquai): At a screening of Godzilla, Zilla charges at the screen and breaks the fourth wall, making the water from the opening scene with the Japanese fishing vessel to flood the theater.
    • "Heroes" (The Wallflowers): The Wallflowers perform in a New York apartment during Zilla's attack. At one point, Zilla passes through the street, and his tail destroys the windows. In the final scene, his roar can be heard.
