One six second drum loop has been sampled and used in countless records. In 1969 a band called the Winstons cut a song called Amen, Brother. A part of that track has been used in everything from old school hip hop, a David Bowie song, and commercials. Knowing this raises interesting questions about intellectual property. The above video tells the partial history of this break beat. The video is fairly interesting despite the announcer speaking in a Stephen Hawking monotone voice. Probably the quote I find the most interesting is, and this is a paraphrase: A whole subculture has been created out of six seconds in 1969.
