21The Enemy Inside - Dream Theater

Tool and dream theater should be all over this countdown

Lol what is wrong with people a Blink 182 song in front of a Dream Theater song. Also who the hell said Lars Ulrich can actually play drums, (Metallica fanboys).

22Inamorata - Animals as Leaders

One does not simply think that other songs can be as difficult as this.

23The Carbon Stampede - Cattle Decapitation

I don't know why people call this "noise", I could just as easily call the music that's very popular now noise, but that's just opinion, this song requires more musical skill than 100% of songs now days.

This song sounds terrible its just noise and screaming. whoever thinks this is good music, then you need your ears checked!

Whoever thinks this is good music has a different opinion than you. - Fiend

24The Betrayal - Fleshgod Apocalypse
25Silent Flight Parlaiment - Between the Buried and Me
26Beyond Bludgeoned - Brain Drill

How can the drummer do this? This song must leave the drummers hands broken! This should be at least in the top 3! This is way harder than Dance of Eternity.

27Brianstorm - Arctic Monkeys

Sorry but no. Very fun song to play but I've only been drumming six months and I can play this song. There is actually a lot of other arctic monkeys songs that are even harder

Love playing this song but not too hard

It's super fast which usually makes a song hard - aspasiz

28Almost Easy - Avenged Sevenfold

It's funny that this song would be titled as so; it's far from easy to play on drums.

Almost easy, when I listened to the song, It's the exact opposite of almost easy

29Painkiller - Judas Priest

Such a badass song, possibly my favorite, and the drumming is a huge part of what make it a classic. Listen once and you'll know what I mean. Such intense drumming that never lets up during the song's six minutes

This in my opinion should be higher up on the list but it's not the hardest song on drums.

30Your Treachery Will Die with You - Dying Fetus

Damn this is the hardest song I have ever heard

I've tried this song muulitple times, and jesus is it hard, It is defaintly one of the hardest.

31The Glass Prison - Dream Theater
32Laser Cannon Deth Sentence - Dethklok
33Bat Country - Avenged Sevenfold

In my opinion, this isn't Avenged Sevenfold's most difficult song; Burn it Down is much more difficult. This song is really difficult to perfect though.

34Eeyore - Slipknot

Very hard song to play that's for sure. Can not possibly do that drum solo because I only play single pedal and that's not actually humanly possible. Should definitely be higher.

35Shall Rise Shall Be Dead - George Kollias

This should be in top 10. No one can cover this song the way George Kolias has played this song.

36The Count of Tuscany - Dream Theater

Incredible. Dream Theater and Rush should be filling it up. Dance Of Eternity, La Villa Strangiato, The Count Of Tuscany, Tom Sawyer, the Glass Prison, YYZ and especially Six Degrees Of Inner Turbulence. - Beatlesboy9

37Karn Evil 9 - Emerson Lake & Palmer
38Through the Fire and Flames - DragonForce

When its DragonForce, it involves Rapid Firing Double bass drums and very fast hands, it looks impossible (unless you are highly experienced drummer)

The drums in this... Oh my god, this has got to be the hardest song in the world on drums.

39Psychosocial - Slipknot

I'm not talking about psychosocial because there are harder songs of joey, but he is the best drummer! He is very fast and he has an excellent technique... And where is Dave Lombardo on the list?

Very hard, But Gematria And All Hope Is Gone Should Be Here, Both are very hard songs...

Joey Jordison gets WAAY too much hate. Just because some people don't like Slipknot doesn't mean Joey is a bad drummer! Check out Disasterpiece, People = S#! T, Sulfur, Vendetta and Eyeless. All very good with fast double bass and tricky fills galore. As for Psychosocial, it's really not that hard. But still fun and great fills.
