Gurgu Volcano is a song that is first heard in the Earth Cave, but makes a later appearance for the Titan's Tunnel and the Gurgu Volcano.


There isn't an official English release of the song. The Japanese title mixes katakana and kanji, グルグ火山 (Gurugu Kazan). Gurugu is a proper name in the game which is rendered in English as "Gurgu," and kazan is the Japanese word for "volcano," thus the title, "Gurgu Volcano."
