Not really... It's one of those riffs which is just immediately catchy, and indeed the said Maiden track was used for a very famous Lucozade advert back in the day, which showed Daley Thompson sprinting over hurdles (hence why the Amiga mod is called "daley.mod" no doubt), synced up so he started sprinting at the same time as the riff tempo picks up... and it's probably being used in part with nostalgia for the advert, which is where it's mostly remembered from, rather than the band or the Amiga today too. A close comparison would probably also be the riff to Joy Division's "Ceremony", used as the theme tune to Match of The Day at one point as I recall, and now associated with football and football games, rather than the emotional suicide note it actually is.
