What is it called when a techno/similar artist mixes a song with chunks or samples of rock songs? What are some artists or songs that do this?

I love when artists doing techno/electro-house/electronic/etc kind of music incorporate or base their songs around chunks or samples of rock songs. An example would be mixes I've heard of Benny Benassi mixed with the Red Hot Chili Peppers' Otherside or The White Stripes' Seven Nation Army. I have no idea if these mixes were actually put together by Benassi or someone else.
Help me find more of these types of tracks by telling me what this type of thing is called or by giving examples of songs or artists that do this!
