"Come with Me" was featured on the soundtrack for the 1998 Godzilla film. The song recreates the 1975 Led Zeppelin song "Kashmir". Jimmy Page and producer Tom Morello also supplied live guitar parts (Morello also played bass on the song). The song also features heavy orchestral elements. It reached #2 in the UK and #4 in the US. In France, when football club Olympique Marseille scores a goal, this song is played.

A music video, directed by Howard Greenhalgh featuring both Puff Daddy and Jimmy Page, was made for the song.

This collaboration was number twenty-seven on VH1's "Least Metal Moments"[1] in a segment subtitled "It's All About the Zeppelin" in reference to Puff Daddy's "It's All About the Benjamins".

Combs and Page performed the song on SNL's 23rd-season finale that aired on May 9, 1998.[2]

The song used to play for New York Yankees Shortstop Derek Jeter when he would come up to the plate.

The song is currently used as an intro to the final stage in the Italian game show, "Avanti un altro!".

The song has frequently been played during the popular and historical Swedish ski-race Vasaloppet.
