It's not anger, and don't take my comments personally.

Re-using music, or parts of it, is probably as old as 
music itself, and until music became very big business
(it was business before, but not in that way), people
were usually honoured when it happened as long as the
result was  attributed to the original composer.

But. Adding a ostinate beat to music that was never
designed to have such a beat has IMHO never produced
anything of value. In the best case it creates an
effect of 'alienation', but it's an effect, no more.
Which means it's surprising the first time, much less
so the second, and just boring from the third time you
hear it.
