GBU Showdown Music Question
Hey, I just was watching The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly and was wondering where else I heard the final showdown music. Not the traditional GBU theme but the beating kind of music that plays right when Tuco stumbles upon the graveyard and is running around. I know it was used in another movie I just can't think of it. Any help would be great, it's driving me crazy. Thanks.

It's called "Ecstacy of Gold"

You might've heard it on a Metallica performance.

You mean "The Ecstasy of Gold?" Wikipedia says it's been used in the following:
