But it's in the dark and in the mellow tunes. Examples abound. How about Oasis with the Amen? Much better!

The Amen break goes in and out of fashion. Around the time of Pendulum, circa 2005, it was coming back. They use it in really fresh ways. (If you're into that sort of thing.)

Venetian Snares, my favorite of the breakcore/idm amen-breakers. Most every song of his seems to have the amen break.

And so on.
