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:

* The Game uses the "Blueprint 2" beat at the end of his diss track 300 Bars and Runnin'.
* Sampled for a Breez Evahflowin track featuring Immortal Technique titled "Land of the Gun" on the album Stronghold Mixtape Vol. 2
* It is also heavily sampled for the western themed RPG Wild Arms as the world map theme.
