Can I borrow a few seconds from a song without permission?
No, this is not allowed. You cannot borrow anything from a protected composition without permission from the person who owns the rights to the song. You also cannot sample a drum sound, for example, without permission from the owner of the recording. Feel free to search Stim’s register to see who owns the rights to the song you want to use. Please note that you need a login for My Pages to search yourself.
If you are going to use the music in connection with a visual media sequence, contact NCB directly to obtain a so-called synchronization license.
