That’s the Mike Tyson code for Mike Tyson’s Punch-out. Enter that code, and you can face the titular boxer without working your way up the ranks.
Why do I know this? In middle school, I saw the code in Nintendo Power magazine at a friend’s house minutes before his mother sent me home. Instead of writing it down, I recited it the entire walk home from his house. Over and over again. It became a mantra as I walked.
When I got home, I entered the code and got my ass kicked. I worked and worked at it, and eventually, Iron Mike became pretty easy to defeat.
The key is dodging the entire first round. You have to wear him down. I don’t think you can even throw a punch in the first two rounds. You’ll earn stars here and there by sneaking in body blows, but you’ll have to save them up for a third round TKO.
(I have to say, this code ruined the game. I couldn’t bring myself to work up the ranks. Soda Popinski, Bald Bull, the second Don Flamenco, Sandman, and Super Macho Man would WHOOP MY ASS every time. I lost interest quickly.)
"Another Gal’s Black Eye" — The Journeymen (Superego)
I mean, look, I love Superego, I love concept albums, I love incorporation and cross-pollination of musical styles, and I love affectionate homage-parodies. I was always going to love Mount Us More. But it could have had all of the aforementioned ingredients, settled for unremarkable musical composition, and still been pretty good.
But it didn’t. Besides being yet another delicious track on this very funny album, this song just sounds so good.
