Godzilla March Theme

The Godzilla March theme is the second official theme to the monster character Godzilla and the series he is a part of, it's one of the most notable songs in the Godzilla franchise. It premiered on the film King Kong vs. Godzilla, the third film in the franchise.

The most notable alternated version is the Main Title track from Mothra vs. Godzilla, which is actually the Godzilla March theme only altered at the end.

The Godzilla March theme is the only song used more times in the Godzilla films than the first theme song. Hip Hop artist Pharoahe Monch used excerpts and samples from the Mothra vs. Godzilla version of the Godzilla March theme for his song "Simon Says." He was sued for using the samples without permissions from Toho.
