The American producer Skrillex's 2010 single "Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites" is a classic that contributed to the development of the dubstep subgenre as we know it today. Along with the music's elaborate sound design and forceful bass drops, which are Skrillex's trademarks, the tune also includes glitchy, distorted vocal samples that further contribute to the confusion.

When "Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites" was released, it immediately became popular, both inside and beyond the electronic dance music scene. After winning the Grammy for Best Dance Recording in 2012, it cemented its reputation as a genre classic.
