Never Reload

An ode to the 80s Action Movie Cliche where the hero’s gun never seems to run out of bullets. References the Konami Code from the Nintendo game Contra.

Lyrics
I never have to reload
It’s like I got the Konami Code
I kill my enemies cold
And my gun is about to expload
Up Up Down Down, Left Right, Left Right, B,A Start
Up Up Down Down, Left Right, Left Right, B,A Start

Got my back against a wall
listen how all the shell casings fall
You’re wondering how man shots
Don’t try to count because it’s a lot
Magic bullets magic gun
If you see me coming you better run
Action Pact to the extreme
The body count I leave is obscene

I never have to reload
It’s like I got the Konami Code
I kill my enemies cold
And my gun is about to expload
Up Up Down Down, Left Right, Left Right, B,A Start
Up Up Down Down, Left Right, Left Right, B,A Start
Up Up Down Down, Left Right, Left Right, B,A Start

never reload

Getaway

Continuing on with the hit parade of my tribute album to 80s Rock music and 80s Action Movie cliches and tropes, his time it’s an ode to the mandatory car chase in pretty much every action movie ever. I hope to here it in a car commercial one day, or maybe in a movie that’s just a little too on the nose.

Lyrics

The Crooks want to get away
Gotta have a chase on the highway
Getaway Getaway, They wanna getaway
Getaway Getawy, Won’t let ’em getaway

Robbers on the highway
they push the petal to the Red LIne
Mess around with me
you get a permanent Bed Time
Smashing through the barricades
and crashing into Squad Cars
Thought they’d getaway,
but really they never got far
Jumping over ramps
at maximum acceleration
What they didn’t count on
was my determination
I Bumped into their backside
they spun out of control
Mess with the law
then you got to pay the toll

The Crooks want to get away
Gotta have a chase on the highway
Getaway Getaway, They wanna getaway
Getaway Getawy, Won’t let ’em getaway
The Crooks want to get away
Gotta have a chase on the highway
Getaway Getaway, They wanna getaway
Getaway Getawy, Won’t let ’em getaway
Getaway Getaway, They wanna getaway
Getaway Getawy, Won’t let ’em getaway

Always Ready

T-Shirt design for so badass it hurts contest on cracked.com.

I went with 80s action movie motifs. Rambo’s hair and headband. Dutch’s vest with grenades from Predator. A BFG . Nun chucks, so many American Ninja ¬†and martial arts movies in the 80s. Chuck Norris’/Burt Reynold’s mustache. Aviator Sun Glasses. ¬†Arnold’s trademark cigarrs. This is what action looked like to me as a kid. Hopefully the judges think so too.

If they don’t I’ll post in in zazzle and or cafepress.
