103 Tom Hunting Tom Hunting
104 Bob Bryar Bob Bryar
105 Art Blakey

Probably the mentor of all great drummers to-day.. Brian Blakey Davison as he would have liked to have been known as.. Instead of Brian "Blinky Davison" of The Nice, refugee, etc. Not on this list.. An artist in the art of rhythm drumming. Art Blakey was his inspiration

Probably the most complete drummer to pick up sticks. Though jazz was his focus, he could play many different genres of music. - AKPickin

84th is ridiculous for Blakey. Top 20 all day and you could easily argue top 10. - Kidkoffee

Blakey's "Niagara Falls" drum roll.

106 John Dolmayan John Dolmayan John Dolmayan is a Lebanese-born Armenian–American songwriter and drummer. He is best known as the drummer of System of a Down.

Just the fact that he can do double base, fast drum rolls, and always has a natural rhythm set up in every System of a Down song puts him at #1 in my book. Listen to Soil. That's him at his best.

The fact that he is currently at #97 while Tre Cool at #37 is just sad. Such complex drumming shouldn't be ignored. Most of these people voting are really just voting for their favorite bands instead of focusing on the drummer. Bull!

Never misses a beat both live and at the recording studio. Fast, hard, and unforgiving.

He has his own way to play... And he is one of the bests! It's not his position!

107 Mikkey Dee Mikkey Dee

Mikkey is insane! Rocked with Motorhead, Helloween, King Diamond and Dokken, thats a pretty impressive list. Listen to Hell Was Made In Heaven and tell me he doesn't belong in the top 10 -

Mikkey is the beast with motorhead. Like lemmy sad. "the best drummer he had ever played with"

108 Tim Herb Alexander

Herb considers both Peart & Bonham as his main influences. one can clearly hears that. Bonham should be number one; Peart number two & Alexander number three.

the only bassist alive that can keep up with les claypool's inhuman bass playing

This guy is way too far down this list.

109 Brann Dailor Brann Dailor Brann Timothy Dailor is an American drummer/singer best known as a member of the Atlanta, Georgia metal band Mastodon, in which he is the drummer, backing vocalist, lead vocalist and primary lyricist.

Unique sound and creativity, absolutely recognizable!

110 Christian "CC" Coma

Black Veil Brides! CC is a amazing drummer, his solos are cool. He's very talented! BVB!

111 Josh Dun Josh Dun Joshua William "Josh" Dun is an American musician. He is currently the drummer for the band Twenty One Pilots.

He puts all of his soul and energy into his drumming and really has a passion for what he does.

Josh is an energetic drummer and has a fervent passion for drumming

Just watch some videos, it will be worth it

He should be the first

112 Jason Rullo
113 Gilang Ramadhan
114 Arin Ilejay
115 Jared Falk

He is absolutely legendary. The reason he is not in a good position of this list is because he is not in a band but his drum solos are incredible. He is my inspiration as a drummer.

How is scott not at least in the top 50? Seriously?

117 Mark Brzezicki

Highly underrated! A great sessions drummer, has played in the band Big Country for years. Also has played with Pete Townsend, Roger Daltry, the Cult.

Thanks Dub and Had A that inspired me to take up the drums.

His high hat progression and use of the bass drum convinced me to buy a drum set and jam along to Sublime's tunes.

Can't deny it, the man is an underrated genius.

Sublime is awesome. I would put bud in the top 10 if it were up to me. He is awesome he made me want to play

120 Chris Adler Chris Adler Christopher James Adler is an American drummer, best known as a member of the groove metal band Lamb of God.

Just listen to now you've got something to die for or ruin. His drumming is fast yet unique. Probably one of the best metal bands out there right now. Won best metal drummer. I don't know why he is this low?

How? How? 59?!?! He is undoubtedly the best... Nobody can question his sheer brilliance. How many other drummers in his genre actually play without triggers? He is the reason I started playing the drums.

Number 90, seriously? Chris is hands down the best drummer ever. Just listen to the final 20 seconds of Straight for the Sun. He should defiantly be in the top 10.

Listen to Black Label and then vote for him. You will want to after that song - heavymetalrocker777
