Daikaiju (stylized "DaiKaiju") are a kaiju-themed surf rock revival band from Huntsville, Alabama, usually consisting of two guitarists, a bassist, and a drummer. The band formed in the winter of 1999 and first performed in January of 2000. The band has played shows across Europe, eastern Asia, and North America. As of 2018, the band is still actively touring.Daikaiju originally formed in the winter of 1999.

In 2005, the band released their first full-length album, self-titled Daikaiju. Of the album's ten tracks, five were previously recorded (in an earlier form) on 2001's Monster Surf, and two more were previously heard on 2002's The Phasing Spider Menace. The album received mostly positive reviews from critics, with Pitchfork Media giving the album a 7.8/10, praising the band's "prog muscle" and calling it an "impressive full-length debut".

In 2010, the band released their second full-length album, titled Phase 2.

In a 2012 interview with Florida Geek Scene, the band was asked about the change in personnel between Daikaiju (album) and Phase 2. Daikaiju, in response, referred to the departing members as "casualties".

In 2013, the band toured the Far east visiting China, South Korea, and Japan. Its visit to Japan, in particular, was highly anticipated by fans and the band itself. Daikaiju tied Public Image Ltd. as the 'Best show by a foreign touring act' in Time Out Beijing's "Year's end roundup: the best of Beijing music" for 2013.
