The Amen Break
I'm in a musical mood tonight.
Here's a video narrating the history and use of the "world's most important 6-sec drum loop".
Even the Economist has something to say about those 6 seconds of drumming.

Absolutely paramount in oldskool breakbeat/early drum and bass tracks.

Almost as famous the "dominator" style hoover sound which comes from a Juno Synth sample, used in 100s of tracks early nineties.

You'll find it in the most unlikely of places.
Futurama theme tune, for instance.

We had a discussion about this in the office the other day - my colleagues hadn't heard of it, and we sat on YouTube finding loads of examples of where it has been chopped up and used for the last 20-odd years!
It's much like the musical version of the Wilhelm Scream used in oh so many movies.
