SQL token error

Upon solving this task: We have an e-commerce database. Inside the users table we have the columns of id, username, password, first_name and last_name. Without using the OR keyword, find all the users with the username of "2spooky4me" or "beard_man".

And applying this code: [code] SELECT * FROM users WHERE username IN (2spooky4me,beard_man); [/code]

I receive an error: SQL Error: unrecognized token: "2spooky4me" Please advice further on what am I doing wrong.
