Some cartridges use the PROGSF1 board, which uses a CPLD to unscramble and overlay the P1 ROM.

Intro music

Play that shit like you just got your motherfuckin'... *

It all began in '94
Kept on rolling in '95
The pieces were in place in '96
It came to an end in '97
Now it comes, and here we go
K-O-F is here again
Nothing's gonna stop 'cause it's nineteen ninety-eight !

* : The first line was censored in the non-encrypted version (kof98h). The V ROMs are identical so they still contain the sample, only the M1 ROM was modified so that the sample is no longer triggered during playback.
