Godzilla March Theme

The Godzilla March theme is the second official theme used in the Godzilla film series.

It premiered on the film King Kong vs. Godzilla, the third film in the franchise, and is the only theme used more times in the Godzilla films than the first theme song. The "Godzilla March" was used as the main title track for Mothra vs. Godzilla with an altered ending.

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.
