Godzilla: The Album is the soundtrack to the 1998 film, Godzilla. It was released on May 19, 1998 through Epic Records and mainly consists of alternative rock songs. The soundtrack was a success, peaking at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 and reaching platinum certification. The album's most successful single was Puff Daddy and Jimmy Page's "Come with Me" which peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was also certified platinum. Other hit singles included Jamiroquai's "Deeper Underground", the band's only No. 1 on the UK Singles Chart, and The Wallflowers' cover of "Heroes", which peaked at number 10 on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart in 1998. The album was commercially successful in both the United States and Japan, being certified platinum by the RIAJ and RIAA in June and July 1998, respectively.[2][3]

A notable entry is "No Shelter" by Rage Against the Machine, in which a line in the lyrics of the song appears to criticize the film for distracting the public, saying, "Godzilla, pure motherfucking filler. Get your eyes off the real killer."

The album was released in Japan and The Philippines with a bonus track titled Lose Control by L'Arc-en-Ciel.
