In Skrillex's song "First of the Year (Equinox)" (listen on Spotify), there is a sample of someone shouting, "Call 911 now!".

I've heard that this sample was taken from a YouTube video of some teenagers harassing a woman until she tried to call the police. Is this true?

    Dunno, but the "Yes, OH MY GOD!" from Scary Monsters came from a YouTube video of a girl stacking cups, so it's entirely possible he used the same medium for that sample too. Commented Mar 9, 2015 at 1:18
