    A-Trak's annotations he wrote for Genius.com are fun. Here was a fun highlight: "Later on, we were planning a tour after that and we were pulling up samples and things to add over songs in the live performances. I pulled up the acapella for “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” and he just looked at me like “There’s an a-capella?” And said “Yeah, it’s on the 12-inch, everyone has it.” He said, “Do you know how much we struggled to mix that f***ing beat because I sampled it with the drums in it from the breakdown? You mean to tell me that there was a f***ing acapella?” In the Daft Punk original, there’s a breakdown with just the little compressed drums and the vocals. He sampled that and put his drums over it. The big challenge was how to work his drums around the drums in the sample. That was funny."

    Actually, now that I look at the comments underneath this, that explains why he hated the drums in this song so much. Interesting.

    I understand why single drum kicks cannot be qualified as a direct sample due to them being almost impossible to identify which source they came from, and the fact that they can just as easily be re-played. However, this website should make an exception when another instrument (including, in this case, vocals) along with the drum kick, are directly sampled on another track.

    The versions in this "video" appears to be the original , with an extended outro:

    The version here contains drum programming done by Timbaland. Shouldn't he e credited it for it here (as a remixer)?

    It wasn't the drums in HBFS that were irritating him, it was the ones in Stronger itself. When he heard the first mix on the radio, it didn't sound right to him. If you listen, the people in the video talk about a Britney Spears remix that went through 10 mixes, because Kanye is such a perfectionist. That's why he had to get Timbaland to get the drums to sound right.

    ...I'll gues i'll be the first to leave a comment on the song. Kanye said he was inspired to make this after hearing the Daft Punk song on the radio. He said the drums we're irriitating the s*** out of him so he had to do something about it.

    Here's a video of the making of it

    Front page. 10 votes, uhm 11 votes...and no comments?

    I like how this page is looking though. Both songs use samples, they've been sampled, been remixed and been covered.
