The Ten Most Sampled Breakbeats of All Time

These types of articles come up on the web all the time, but I always find them interesting. Here's one via WhoSampled.com that includes video clips of each song. It's especially interesting to hear the drum break in its original context. You have to wonder if any of these drummer imagined that their work would still be an important part in new music, 40-50+ years down the road.

Also be sure to check out their excellent "Ten Vocal Samples You've Heard a Million Times Before, But Never Knew Where They're From" post.
