Take these songs for instance:
This one sampled the "Sweet Child O' Mine" guitar. A pumped, hip-hop beat and rap vocals intertwined with the guitar, giving a different, unique sound. Mike Shinoda, known as part of the former group, Fort Minor, and a current member of Linkin Park, has a great ear in my opinion.
This one sampled part of the instrumental on The Doors' "Light My Fire". More interestingly, The Doors collaborated with Skrillex's "Breakn' A Sweat" by doing some vocals.
I'll put more examples on this thread if I want to.
