Top Ten Best Drum Songs

Drummers. Fast. Skilled. Incredible. You name it. The SONGS, though, matter. Here are the best.

The Top TenXW

1Moby Dick - Led Zeppelin

Most drummers think there are people who can drum better than Bonham, those people use double bass kick to make crazy beats. Bonham only used one pedal and could go just as fast, which made him awesome

Truly phenomenal footwork there! John bonham was a pioneer of the heel-toe technique. He mastered it in the 1969 song "Good Times Bad Times".

Great song but there are other songs most difficult then this for Led Zeppelin like Fool In The Rain or Achilles Last Stand
Rip bonham
Thank you for make me drumming

Extremely good song. No wonder it's number 1!

Best by far, Dave Grohl can still keep an epic drum solo

Fast drums and everything else you need for a song.

3Eyeless - Slipknot

Slipknot has the best drummer in the world. He can keep a beat and is like crazy fast. It's only fare he be ontop

Should really be top of the list, whether or not you like Slipknot this song has the best drumming simply because of the skill and pace involved. - EvilAngel

Sick as intro and just a sick song all around

4Hot for Teacher - Van Halen

and you thought the guitar was good

My kid favorite song and he loves drums. I rest my case (i like more bass guitars though)

Have you ever heard I drum kit sound like a car? Well this solo does it!

So True this should be at the top

5YYZ - Rush

This is an amazing song by Rush. If you can play this your awesome

6Ticks and Leeches - Tool

Danny Carey's style is so clean and fast... I've never heard some one playing like him.

Danny Carey is god... Seriously I think he is.

Danny Carey is crazy. He's the kind of drum that with play something and you'll have to think about what he just did because it more than likely advanced Rythmes and odd times

Danny Carey is CRAZY in this song!

7My Generation - The Who

The massive crazy noise of Moon the Loon - The Who would not have been The Who without his input. Maybe technically not the best, but he sure had a highly original awesome sound. A great advert for English made Premier Drums.

Keith moon is the best drummer of all time. he only had to use one microphone to get the sound he wanted. People who drum know how hard that is.

821st Century Schizoid Man - King Crimson

Mind bending playing. Very few drummers can claim to have had a track this. They not only kept time on such an influential, epic, rocking track, but also helped to shape the sound of it to such a degree. Bravo to Michael Giles. Bravo. One for the ages.

Smells Like Teen Spirit at 5 is priceless! This song is hard to keep up with.

9Brianstorm - Arctic Monkeys

this song begin so good with drum beat and then Alex turner start his voice and the drum beat slower. At the end the drum beat faster again Ow, it so spectacular!

wow whos brian aneeway awesome drums though

The Newcomers

?Come Sail Away - Styx

John Panozzo's epic tom parts! The drums really help the song build in dynamic and energy. This classic drumming is a defining feature of one of Styx's greatest hits.

?Would? - Alice in Chains

The drums in this song have such a cool beat, I think that's what got me into Alice In Chains. Maybe not the best drums ever, but in terms of how well they fit with the song, I think that's an arguable criterion. - Dorito

The Contenders

11Your Betrayal - Bullet for My Valentine

The bass drum is so fluent throughout the chorus.

12It Never Ends - Bring Me the Horizon

Such a hard song to play on drums

13Cold - AxeWound
14Bat Country - Avenged Sevenfold

I think this is the most amazing drums song, just hear the drums in the song, this song is composed by "The rev" sulivan (R.I. P) He is considerated one of the best drummers ever, The song contains good rhythms and great smacks, because this is a heavy metal song, and I think this is the best drum song of all time

Perfection! How the hell did the Rev do that? Such an underrated drummer at his best in the song!

Best double bass in any song ever

I'm 40 now and still trying this song

15Strife - Trivium
16Wrath Upon Ourselves - As I Lay Dying
17Pull Harder On the Strings of Your Martyr - Trivium
18Blacken the Cursed Sun - Lamb of God

This and Descending (same band) are some of the best drumming I've ever heard

19Fire - Jimi Hendrix Experience

This has to be number 1. And number 2. Technically brilliant and fits seamlessly with the song.

This is awesome drumming by Mitch Mitchell who drives the song along.
