Gally singing Big Generator in Battle 23.
|Appears in||Battle 23|
"Big Generator" (ビッグ・ジェネレイター Biggu Jenereitā?) is a song by Yes that appears on their 1987 album, Big Generator. The second half of it was originally sung in the Japanese version of Gunnm by Gally in Bar New Kansas, but the lyrics were reworked for the English release by Viz Media, most likely to avoid copyright issues. Notably this change also affected the audience's responses at two parts in the song, indicating that they are familiar with it: they originally belted out the words "Big Generator!" near the beginning and the final word at the end, "Movin!" In the English release they instead cheered "Alita!" at these two parts.
