The Megadeth song "Crush 'Em" was the temporary entrance theme for wrestler Bill Goldberg, a fan of the band, following his return from a six-month absence from wrestling. The band performed it live for him on July 5, 1999 on WCW Monday Nitro (1995) prior to his grand entrance. Director Mic Rodgers wanted to include the song in the film soundtrack as well. The music video for the song features both Goldberg and Jean-Claude Van Damme, with Goldberg joining lead singer Dave Mustaine in the chorus.
