The song played at the game's main menu (samples of which are also heard in various other parts of the game) is a real song. It's appropriately called "Iron Helix", performed by a band called Xorcist. The relationship between the game and the song is symbiotic: The game uses the song in its soundtrack, and the song uses some sound samples from the game.
Xorcist went on to contribute music to two other CD-ROM games: Bad Mojo and Space Bunnies Must Die. Add

Iron Helix had one of the slowest install procedures known to the modern world. It took well over an hour to install the game, for no apparent reason except that the decompression library was not optimized at all. The machine in question was a 486/66 running Windows 3.1 with a double-speed (2X) CDROM drive and 32MB RAM -- well beyond the minimum requirements of the game.
To be fair, the game ran perfectly after it was installed. Add
