It was re-released in Australia in August 2004 and re-titled as Heroes (see second infobox at below right), coinciding with Seven Network's TV broadcast of the Athens Olympic Games, which had two tracks removed and a second mix of "Heroes" added. "Heroes" (The Athens Mix), a cover of David Bowie's original hit, was released in August 2004 and peaked at #93 on the Australian singles charts. (en)
