Super Mario Bros 2 Music Trick

There’s a cool bug in Super Mario 2 that not many know about. No, I’m not the first to report on it, but I can’t ever recall seeing it in any magazine or website.

The bug lets you play the over world theme from Super Mario 1 outside of subspace. In subspave it plays, but only for 7 seconds and then you’re forced out. With this trick, you can hear it to your hearts content!

How does it work? Check the video! Stay to the end because I let the music run without any interruption.

I'm a guy in Japan. I love games but also life! I guess that's it. Come visit me on YouTube to see what things I find, and play.


  1. Very cool trick, I’m sure a lot of people weren’t aware of

  2. This is really cool! I’ve never heard of this before.

    Sadly my only copy of Super Mario Bros. 2 is on the SNES All-Stars, so I won’t be able to try it myself.

  3. Intriguing, especially the “pause” version of the music.

  4. Count me in as another person who didn’t know about this trick and thinks it’s cool! Nice coverage.
