Forever he will be my hero

Some video game themes are so iconic that it's impossible to not recognize where they're from, even if you haven't touched the game in years.

Tetris. Super Mario Bros. Captain Falcon?

While we're not saying his theme song is up there in the annals of game music legend, after this episode of NLFM, we're pretty confident that you won't look at the punchestest F-Zero pilot to ever punch in quite the same way.

In case you've missed out on the fun so far, NLFM generally focuses on music from games playable on Nintendo consoles and handhelds, which, thanks to the Virtual Console, also includes the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive and Master System, Turbografx-16, Neo Geo and Commodore 64. It's not all games either as we highlight chip musicians and albums we really like.

Coming at you live and loud in the ocho:

2. Anamanaguchi - Densmore (Aurora)
3. Gaijin Games - Strength (BIT.TRIP RUNNER) (iTunes US)
