Songfacts®: You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.
This is based on Led Zeppelin's 1975 song "Kashmir
." It uses the same music, with P. Diddy rapping over it. He was known as Puff Daddy at the time.
Jimmy Page, the former guitar player for Led Zeppelin, performed this with P. Diddy on a 1998 episode of Saturday Night Live.
This was used on the soundtrack to the 1998 movie Godzilla.
When this was re-released on Platinum Collection: Greatest Hits, P. Diddy's obscenities were "censored" with Godzilla's roar. (thanks, Brett - Edmonton, Canada)

Kristian talks songwriting technique, like how the chorus should redefine the story, and how to write a song backwards.
