This is a pretty nice CD single with an Akira Ifukube march we've heard many times in many movies. Track 1 runs 5:15. Track 2 is the same music with a shorter running time and added sound effects such as the roars of Godzilla, Rodan (Radon) and Ghidrah.

Masaake Sataki is a famous kickboxer in Japan, and he used this song as his theme music in 1994 (like many of the WWE wrestlers have their own themes). It is a re-recorded version of the "Monster Zero March" (aka "Frigate March"), including a few bars from the main title of "The Little Prince and the Eight-Headed Dragon". Track 1 is the full version (5:15), and track two is a shorter edit (2:09) that features monster sound effects. A different short edit (2:38) without sound effects appears as a bonus track on the "AKIRA IFUKUBE SFX MOVIE MARCH COLLECTION" CD (TYCY-5412).
