Jay Z and Beyoncé’s On The Run Tour has been one for the history books.

After setting the world on fire via HBO and the City of Love, all eyes (and ears) are awaiting their next move.

A good chunk of the concert’s allure can be owed to running cinematic story line, found on the Bang Bang, Part One Short Film and its Nancy Sinatra record sample of the same name.

Recorded in 1966, the song was actually a platinum hit for Cher before Quentin Tarantino used Sinatra’s version for his über popular film, Kill Bill Vo1. 1. Since then, the sample has been trickled throughout Hip-Hop records, culminating up to The Carter’s money-raking tour.

Here are five solid records that beat Jay & Bey to the punch but didn’t get as much recognition for it.
