I don't think it's sampled.

It's basically something I could do in 10 minutes in ableton without any loops or anything. It sounds like all one hits..

Response by poster: I don't think it's sampled, but feel like it's imitation of another song I've heard before.
The intro hook for anyone who doesn't know it here:

You're talking about the acid sound? That's just a basic 303 patch, and a simple pattern.

Best answer: Thanks Empath. Definitely the Acid Sound. Quick search found this:

Example of 303 Patch , Another 303 Acid Patch, And Another

The acid 303 patch is reminding of the blade rave song: New Order Confusion

Similar (but different) song to LMFAO :
Pop On Acid - Afrojack; or Pacha on Acid
Party Rock on Acid - Afrojack

Yeah there are literally 10,000 songs that use it.

I just heard this song for the first time yesterday and it immediately reminded me of Sexyback by Justin Timberlake.
