Delta II Rocket Explosion

This is an old classic.  On January 17, 1997, the Delta II 7925 carrying a $45 million GPS satellite exploded only 13 seconds after liftoff, raining flaming debris all over Launch Complex 17 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. No one was injured, and the launchpad itself was not seriously damaged, though several cars were destroyed and a few buildings were damaged.

This is the explosion set to the 1812 Overture.
