I hope I did that right and the clip works lol my coding knowledge is zero.

Anyway this break has been used in many songs since the day it was first recorded like in many old school rave tracks, and early hip hop and was a cornerstone of music in the 90's and has had a big influence on many genres of music including drum and bass and still used in music today.
Its not just used in music, ever seen Futurama? then you have heard it the start of every episode! It has been used by Amy Winehouse, Oasis, Prodigy, N.W.A, Dillinja the list of artists and genres goes on.
Although this break has been used for so much music the band and the drummer Gregory Coleman died in September 2006 and never received any money for the use of the break.
I think the break is great even in its original form!
