There are always issues in the cinematic world that are constantly debated all the time like which version of a movie is better; The American Hollywood version or the international version (usually the original)? In 1998, Tri-Star pictures released the abomination known as Godzilla (recognized by the Japanese as Zilla) which was a box office flop and the reason that the original version was better than the American counterpart. The only redeeming factor of this film was the soundtrack which was also hit or miss, but it contained a true gem in it. That true gem that I am talking about comes from politically charged Rap Rock legends Rage Against The Machine and their equally political charged track No Shelter. Despite that the song is the purest example of what Rage Against The Machine was all about, it did contain one line in it, “Godzilla, pure motherfucking filler, get your eyes off the real killer.” Which may have qualified it for this film. The song was first featured on the soundtrack before it was released as a bonus track for The Battle Of Los Angeles. Check it out below:
