** The samples of "Tom's Diner" and ''The Munsters'' theme song were frequently noted by the press, casual listeners, and fans to the point where even Suzanne Vega would join Fall Out Boy live to perform "Centuries". The Son Lux samples proved to be far more contentious. Much like Music/{{Halsey}} after she sampled "Easy" in "Hold Me Down", FOB got accused of plagiarizing Son Lux by rock and pop fans unfamiliar with how sampling works. Despite Son Lux's willingness to allow FOB to sample "Lost It To Trying" and past mainstream collaborations, the owner of Glassnote Records, Son Lux's label, would later write a ''very'' scathing post about allowing the band to sample "Lost It To Trying" in the first place. Depending on your perspective, it's either a huge diss towards FOB, an insightful look at the moral quandaries involved in letting a mainstream act to sample from indie acts, or a bunch of hand wringing from a man complaining about the band's popularity and "sellouts" but still allowed the sampling to happen anyways.

* In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BL-4Vq4CuoQ "The City"]] by Kristine feat. Surf School Dropouts, the backing vocals interpolate the refrain of the 1964 hit [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WeKTui6yNE8 "Be My Baby"]] by The Ronettes.

Added DiffLines:

** "Like Toy Soldiers" by Music/{{Eminem}} is based on "Toy Soldiers" by Music/{{Martika}}, just hip-hopped enough to make a good theme song for Wrestling/JohnCena.

** "Cola Bottle Baby" was even meta-sampled: originally by Edwin Birdsong, which was used by Daft Punk in "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger", which was used by Music/KanyeWest in "Stronger" (to be fair the original was horribly out-of-tune).

* One ''WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButthead'' episode showed them watching the video of "Super Freak" by Music/RickJames. Upon hearing the main riff, one comments, "Hey, it's [[Music/MCHammer Hammer time]]!". [[note]] James seems to have retaken his position in most people's memories as of late, thanks to the "I'm Rick James, bitch!" meme. God bless you, Creator/DaveChappelle. [[/note]

** And then there's Mickey and Sylvia's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KpEA5QGYJFQ "Love is Strange"]], sampled for "Back in Time" - to the point it plays during the film to which the song was written, ''Film/MenInBlack 3'' (and some pointed out how using a 1956 song for a film set in 1969 is kind of weird).

* An extremely rare video game example: "Work That Sucker To Death" by Xavier was used in the Japanese ''VideoGame/SonicCD'' boss theme. [[NoExportForYou There's a reason few American gamers are aware of that.]]

* It's pretty openly acknowledged that Music/AlessiaCara's "Here" is built out of "Glory Box" by Music/{{Portishead}}... but somewhat less so that the string section she samples was itself sampled from "Ike's Rap II" by Music/IsaacHayes.

* The timestretched "Brockwild!"([[{{Mondegreen}} not "Jump Wide!"]]) and "Special request" vocals in Double 99's late '90s speed garage anthem [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X7PqbkBUwGw "RIP Groove"]] were sampled from reggae-rap artist Top Cat's 1994 song [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m2st_6bcyp8 "Request the Style"]]. More obscurely, the background female vocal loop is a snippet from Tina Moore's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TdCCWUAWOfc "Never Gonna Let You Go"]](1995).
