Answer: Intel
 
The Santa Clara, Calif.-based company was founded in 1968 and has a multibillion-dollar net revenue. Intel isn't only known for its microprocessors, but also for its famous bong, a sonic jingle, created by Austrian composer Walter Werkowa in 1994. The bong consists of five notes, which mimics the sound of its tagline "Intel Inside", and is one of the world's top sound logos of all time. Chances are, as soon as you saw the word Intel, you hummed the 3-second tune. (Refer to section 1.8 for company's legal filing.)
