There's a great amount of excitement surrounding the first official trailer
for Gareth Edwards' re-re-imagining of Godzilla
, which stars Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad
), Elizabeth Olsen, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick Ass
), and a big ass iguana. And in all honesty, it looks great and we're pretty stoked about it. But through all of its hype, we can't help but reminisce about its most recent predecessor, the 1998 shit-show of a remake. I remember it as one of the greatest disappointments of my childhood. But far worse than the nonsense, plot holes, and Matthew Broderick's woeful acting was the steaming pile of turd known as "Come with Me"—Puff Daddy and Jimmy Page's abysmal musical contribution to the film. Led Zeppelin's iconic "Kashmir" chord progression has been forever tainted by this atrocious song, as well as its baneful video. And if you're looking for a really good cringe this afternoon, stick it through til the 2-minute mark—without spoiling the moment, we'll just say there are a bunch of white doves, and Puffy softly sings like a prepubescent boy.
We're holding onto hope that the latest Godzilla
will feature its own abhorrent collaboration. Maybe Drake and Grand Funk? Or how about Chris Brown and Heart? Enjoy!
