I think we also need to take in to consideration if the song would fit with the movie. If the movie is a little more tongue & cheek with fun antics like [i]Iron Man[/i], then it might be appropriate. If it's a more serious, character driven and hard-nosed movie, then it would be vastly inappropriate to have any form of rock music in it. You don't throw a song in a movie, "just 'cause."

As a life long Godzilla fan, and with all respect to Blue Oyster Cult, my mind and mood is always set to the music used in "Godzilla 1985" and "Godzilla vs. Gigan". No matter what other G-movie I'm watching, that music just sets my heart racing and ready for the blue fire and fight scenes that made me forget that this was sci-fi and that there were people in costumes. I humbly suggest looking up those movies, listen to the music, and really hear what Ifukube was transmitting.

Akira Ifukube didn't score Godzilla 1985, and if memory serves me right, none of his more iconic Godzilla tunes even make it into the movie. I do think Godzilla 1985 is a good score to listen to for tone, but I can't say the same about Godzilla vs Gigan (even though I like that movie a quite a bit).
