History remembers how the Nissan GT-R got to be named "Godzilla" by Australian magazines, reporting on the car that was making Holden drivers pull over and hyperventilate. Around the same time, a band from Long Island had a hit. The band was Blue Oyster Cult, and the song was a tribute to the Japanese movie monster. "Godzilla," off the 1977 Spectres album, turned the prog-rock unit directly into the maw of heavy metal, anchored by the refrain "Go, Go Godzilla!"

Oh no! Driver said he had to go! Go-go Godzilla! Woo-oooh-oooh!...♪
Go, go indeed.
