It's the piece playing during the prologue with the agents fighting over Godzilla cells, the main two guys trying to get to the Saradian embassy as the evacuation happens, and during the final confrontation with SSS9 after he shoots Dr. Shiragami.

There's also two versions on the Perfect Collection: one with the infamous guitar and one without. The much maligned one is the former.

I kinda like Bio Wars, it’s just so 80s and stupid. I grin like an idiot everytime I watch that scene. Plus I genuinely like how it samples the Godzilla Theme.

Bio Wars sounds like something out of a modern Sonic game.

Bio Wars is a highlight of the franchise. Sometimes being dumb and cheesy is not only okay, but right.

I unironically like Bio Wars and don't find it dumb or cheesy at all. I think it's one of the best compositions in the franchise's musical library; possibly the best non-Ifukube theme.

It's easily on par with the best of Masaru Sato's score from Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla.

Bio-Wars is awesome, it's a piece of Godzilla music that has notes being shredded by a guitar solo.

Bio Wars doesn't fit at all with the rest of Biollante's soundtrack but it's alright in spite of it's corniness.

Bio Wars is golden meme material. Like everyone said, the fact that it's cheesy, out of place and sounds like an 80's game track is exactly what makes it glorious :lol:

I was just watching a couple meme videos about Bio Wars. It's truly art :lol:

The first Cloverfield teaser is still the best teaser of any kaiju movie. A close second would be the 2012 Comic Con Oppenheimer trailer for Godzilla.

I really want to see Jet Jaguar in another Godzilla film.

No need for that. This is another area where you're not alone 'round these parts. Plenty of people here, myself prominently among them, would be first in line for that movie.

That is not a confession. That is a belief that any sane person should hold. :)


...Also, you carry a chicken-wire fence around with you wherever you go? I didn't see that coming. Daws, maybe, but not you... ;)

Oh...well...its a carry over from being on a wrestling forum.

Some wrestling fans can't handle it when you explain to them
how bad the wrestling industry is these days...and that's where
me using the chicken wire fence comes from.

Also its kind of a Road House reference...at the start
of the film the band playing at the Double Deuce are
protected by a chicken wire fence around the stage.
