This is probably the only vinyl record you will ever see on this site. This is the 12" vinyl promo only copy of a live version of Blue Oyster Cult's "Godzilla". I'm including here because I've always been a big Blue Oyster Cult (and as you know a HUGE Godzilla) fan. I feel this is the definitive tribute song to the original 1954 "Godzilla" film. The music is very catchy and the lyrics are a great tribute and not a parody or send up of our giant lizard friend. If you were fortunate enough to have seen BOC perform this song live at concerts during the 70's & 80's you probably got a special treat. At most of these concerts when this song was performed the drummer would do a solo with strobe lights and during the solo would don a realistic looking Godzilla head. On some tours they even had a huge stage prop and backdrop for Godzilla.

This song is one of my all time favorite Godzilla tunes as well as one of my all time favorite Blue Oyster Cult songs.
