Execute a batch multiple times

Occasionally I need to create sample data but am not concerned about the selectivity of the data.  Rather than using a WHILE loop I use the count argument of the GO command.

INSERT INTO Test (Col1,Col2)
VALUES ('ABC','DEF')
GO 1000

Or

INSERT INTO Test (Col1,Col2)
SELECT 'ABC','DEF'
GO 1000

This is different from a UNION.  A union operates under a single batch where this creates 1000 distinct batches.
