The Mars Volta singles chronology

The song "Goliath" is from The Mars Volta's fourth studio album The Bedlam in Goliath. It was originally released as "Rapid Fire Tollbooth" on guitarist Omar Rodríguez-López's 2007 solo album Se Dice Bisonte, No Bùfalo, but was incorporated into the Mars Volta's live set while touring in support of their album Amputechture. It was then rewritten and rerecorded for The Bedlam in Goliath. "Goliath" contains a segment that originally appeared as an improvised jam during performances of "Roulette Dares (The Haunt Of)."

A video for the song features the band playing toy instruments in the middle of a road at night, with Cedric dressed as The Elephant Man from David Lynch's film of the same name.

The "Never heard a man speak like this man before" refrain is taken from a Peoples Temple hymn, "Never Heard a Man". The group is best known for the events of November 18, 1978 in Guyana, in which 918 people died at the Peoples Temple Agricultural Project (informally, and now commonly, called "Jonestown"), a nearby airstrip at Port Kaituma, and Georgetown.[1]

It was to be the first single of the album but the band decided against it and used "Wax Simulacra" instead. It was released as the second single exclusively on USB.

The EL-P remix is featured on the soundtrack of Gran Turismo 5 Prologue.
