It has to be said that Lil Nas X's sample of Nine Inch Nails is as unusual as anything mentioned here. Also in the same vein 88 Key's Phil Manzanera sample on Kanye's Watch The Throne.

Just Blaze's Superfreak flip for Jay-Z was unexpected in a different way.

Run DMC sampling Stone Roses and Johnny Mathis in 1990's What's It All About was pretty cool.

(*Yah Mohs Def, their album is full of samples and references to punk rock bands from the late 90s, even Born Against get sampled)

Christ, you're not wrong. The lyrics are like a copy of Heartattack put through a shredder.

'My War, Black Coffee, keep Icon smelling Mossy/
Change Today? is cool but more important is Citizen Arrest's Collosi'

Stereolab mentioned there a few times and it reminded me. The bassline on Metronomic Underground is not a sample but is blatantly stolen from.... Something that I cannot recall right now, some New Orleans funk or something. Anyway they built a smashing tune around it so fair play.

I know De La Soul are known for their eclectic sampling but this is a step further:

It’s ‘inspired by’ the bassline to ‘The Revolution Will Not be Televised’.

MF Doom samples Frank Zappa's 200 Motels a few times on Mm..Food which I wasn't expecting. The original version I had on MP3 also had a sample of the Children's Television Workshop theme on 'Kookies', but when I bought the reissue that sample had been removed and the song didn't sound right without it.

Yeah there's probably a lot of indie hip hop sampling stuff like that, for example YMD* sampling Drive Like Jehu - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3dnE41UwzOw

Whoever's on the image on that YT video is wearing a Men's Recovery Project t-shirt, and their "Frank Talk About Humans" album is a brilliant bit of bonkers avant garde / comedy / hardcore.

Thanks to everyone in this thread and others for opening my ears to a whole lot of new music.

I was quite surprised to hear a sample of Delia Derbyshire's 'Pot au feu' in When it rains by Danny Brown

just realized that 'Pot au Feu' had already been sampled on 'Real' by Madlib

A line from Fawlty Towers sampled in Hard Rock Soul Movement's Double Def Fresh.
