* Many day stages in ''SonicUnleashed.'' If there isn't one, boosting will fix that, as every time you boost, the song gains lots of reverb and an Amen Break track.
** Not just Unleashed, a few tracks throughout the series since 2004 use the Amen Break. You can find almost two tracks that use the beat in nearly every game in the series since then. This is largely down to Tomoya Ohtani. When questioned about it on his Facebook profile, he attributed it to being his favorite beats sample. But yeah, Unleashed pretty much features it the most prominently.

In 1969, a Soul/Funk group called the Winstons came out with an album called ''Color Him Father''. On the B-side of that album was a song called "Amen Brother". It contained within it a 5 second drum solo. This drum break, called the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amen_Break amen break]], has the distinction of being the single most sampled piece of music in modern history. Every genre, from Hip-hop, to Techno, to Rock has used it at one time or another. It is one of the most ubiquitous pieces of music in modern pop culture. ''Whole genres'' of music [[GenreLaunch owe their very existence to it]]. The genre(s) of [[DrumAndBass Jungle and/or Drum'n'Bass]][[note]]some people use the two terms interchangeably; others insist the latter is a subgenre of the former[[/note]] are pretty much built entirely around the creative use of the Amen Break; sometimes chopping the sample into tiny pieces and building completely new beats out of pieces.

* A good majority of the music from {{VideoGame/Street Fighter III}} consisted of edited versions of the famous break. Example: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KFCr9E9l6Do Necro & Twelve's Theme - Snowland]]
