Wow, that song isn't even that good! Is this for the US release of the game?

WHAT!! THAT'S NOT A GOOD THING!! THAT SONG IS TERRIBLE!! Couldn't some one license Cha La Head Cha La? The American DBZ games are no good anyway. Take Budokai for example. "Now you have the ability to teleport and blah blah blah." I know it's asking a lot, but considering we're fighting with characters who fight at the speed of light couldn't have the ability to...you know...jump? Or duck?

I like the song, more so than the crappy rock music they have right now. (*bonks self with the baka hammer*). Gah, I should stop thinking about them... Anime dazed.

I just wanted to take the opportunity to tell everybody that Kageyama Hironobu's English rendition of Cha-La Head Cha-La, is definitely the greatest thing ever recorded.

That is all.

I heard it. I enjoyed it a lot. But I gotta admit. I liked Rock The Dragon too.

I think Budokai was actually Japanese-made. Funimation just did the dubbing. Budokai 1 had cha-la-head-cha-la in the ending credits but there was no singing. I think there were Japanase names in the credits. Also Budokai 2 and the upcoming Budokai 3 have new songs from Hironobu Kageyama.

If it was US-made, I thought it was great Funimation got Hironobu Kageyama to do the new songs for Budokai.

Japanese made, but not originally for Japan. It's made by a company called Dimps for Atari. The game wasn't released until about 3 months later by Bandai in Japan. The same goes for Budokai 2 and 3, though 3 is only a month later. Also interesting to not that the UK got the first two games a few weeks before we got them, but on third game we'll be getting it over a month sooner than them.

True, the English version of that song is actually really good. Why not use that?
