What popular songs have an intro similar to this 8-bit tune? (16s in)

I've heard this style of hook somewhere before. Anybody know where? Thanks.

Do you mean popular, non 8-bit songs? If so, it reminded me a bit of the intro to Twilight Omens by Franz Ferdinand.

It reminds me a little bit of House of Pain's Jump Around (if you're looking for songs that start out jarring and then get more melodic).

I'm not sure if you're looking for that whiny synthy intro thing or the tune itself. If the former, it certainly put me in mind of The Stranglers' Goodbye Toulouse.
