Might be time for an 'best original songs of sampled hip hop tracks' list...

From 1982, here's 'Straight To Hell' by The Clash:

Mick Jones was famous for sampling the Clash in Big Audio Dynamite.

Now BAD, there's a band that is not aging well!

Sampling:

And Nev, agreed.

I had a peep of a couple of their songs.

...quite happy to have never heard of them.

True to the acronym.

Big Audio Dynamite was really good early on! E=MC2 is a cool song, especially for the time!
But their sound really was crushed dead by grunge. Also Mick Jones wardrobe is pretty stunning in a bad way.

Ya Hammer. That song, (and album) was new to me.

It's solid.

That said, it looks Eno and Byrne sampled this for 'Regiment':



It looks like that beat isn't even the star of that song!

The trumpet and the dancing. That's the winning formula.
