Many artists have sampled this song...

Public Enemy's 911 is a Joke, N.W.A's 100 Miles and Runnin', Large Professor's The Mad Scientist ,and DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince's Rhythm Trax House Party Style uses the song at the end of the track.

Most of the above mentioned songs use Vicent Price's diabolical laugh. But today's artist uses the main synth loop!

On their 4th studio album, the Prodigy sampled MJ's it Thriller for this song.

This album was a departure from their hit THE FAT OF THE LAND. The only member of the group who actually is on this album is the main producer Liam Howlett. Contributors included actress Juliette Lewis, Oasis frontmen Liam and Noel Gallagher, Kool Keith and The Magnificent Ping Pong Bitches.

Great music! Great Sample!!!!
