    I've heard it so many times, I wouldn't be averse to hitting the skip button either to be fair.

    Maybe a little song value and inflation discussion to spice it up ?

    Worst classic rock song:

    1.01 "The Stroke" by Billy Squier

    But it's been sampled about a bazillion times in rap songs.

    Edit:
    okay, a decent amount... Big Beat has been sampled a bazillion times. Apparently Squier makes a good living off of people sampling his stuff.

    Billy Squier's early-'80s heyday may have come and gone -- unceremoniously halted, he says, by an instantly dated video for 'Rock Me Tonite' in 1984 -- but that doesn't mean he's not getting paid. In fact, Squier has become one of the most sampled artists in hip-hop, thanks to a series of thunderous rhythm tracks (courtesy of his late drummer Bobby Chouinard, whom his boss called "Mr. Big Feet") on cuts like 'The Big Beat' and 'The Stroke.' Samples from these two songs alone have appeared on literally dozens of rap songs, earning Squier millions. "He's definitely someone who helped mold and shape hip-hop with his music," said rapper Big Daddy Kane. "I would put him in the category of James Brown, the Honeydrippers and Chic." If you're looking to explore the rocker's second career as a fountain of cool cadences, we've got a list of the Top 10 Billy Squier-Sampled Hip Hop Songs to get you started.
