I used this one in a video about the Tunguska blast (1908). It is a rocksong from 1994: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l2XRIBzA-98

This was a fun one! Now that I know how I'm blowing everything up! HAHA!

Had to use my own explosion, cause i don't have your plugins yet. But it worked like a charm! Thanks again for another oustanding tutorial!
