A big explosion goes off, then we can't hear anything but a high pitched hum. Gradually fade in small arms fire, yelling, screaming, etc.

We've GOTTA already have this. Right? I searched everywhere but no luck.

Examples:
  • Saving Private Ryan, at least 3 or 4 times.
  • The trailer for Halo 3 where Master Chief gets his helmet blown off.
  • LOST 6x01 (after a nuke maybe goes off).
