The sampling from the 1970 gangster film Performance
starring James Fox and Mick Jagger is considered to be the first time that a hit record incorporated modern sampling technologies. The words, "Eats bubblegum, Hall of fame baseball, Senator's a hoodlum, Big chiefs in the hall" refer to Nick Roeg's film Insignificance
when 4 cultural icons from 1950s America meet up. "Eats bubblegum" = Marilyn Monroe, "Hall of fame baseball" = Joe DiMaggio, "Senator's a hoodlum" = Joseph McCarthy. The song's title E=MC2, is about the fourth significant personality in the film, Albert Einstein.
