In 1969, Bobby Fischer played a sharp pawn sacrifice 6...f4 in defending against the English Opening.  The same idea with colors reversed became the basis for the Grand Prix Attack against the Sicilian Defense.  Recently I achieved a draw with Fischer's pawn sac.  After the game, my opponent suggested 15...Bg4 as powerful for Black.
