Pokey Means Business Earthbound Music

Pokey Means Business is the unofficial name of Pokey Minch's battle theme in EarthBound. It starts off as an 8-bit tune and then ascends into hard rock/metal about 53 seconds into the song.

According to Tomato's website, EarthBound Central, this song is known as "Inakunarinasai (イナクナリナサイ)" in Japan. Tomato translates this as "Cease To Exist" or "Stop Existing", but he adds that the Japanese name is "a lot cooler and creepier-sounding than it sounds in English". However, the song does not have an official title.[1]


It was also composed of the themes of Lanlanlu.
