Hardest Songs to Play On Drums


The Contenders: Page 6XW

101Walk With Me In Hell - Lamb of God
102Caught in a Mosh - Anthrax

Drums are crazy later in the song. I played this on drums and my hands got sore!

It's just too fast. Can't play it for more than 2 minutes.

103Emenius Sleepus - Green Day
104Panic Song - Green Day
105Platypus (I Hate You) - Green Day

I almost strained myself playing this

106C***crusher - Infant AnnihilatorV3 Comments
107A Nightmare to Remember - Dream Theater
108Seven Nation Army - The White Stripes

This is probably one of the easiest songs. Meg White is one of the worst drummers on the planet. I could teach someone who doesn't play drums this song in maybe 5-10 minutes.

How did this become hard, iv'e listened to the song and it isn't anywhere near hard

111Tarkus - Emerson, Lake & Palmer

Hard as hell time signature, all over the map, 20 minutes long. Even the first could be considered harder then most of the songs on this list.

My band plays this, and as the drummer I've spend almost a year learning this.. and I've played drums for over 25 years.. "Eruption" is in 5/4 and "Manticore"is in 9/8.. it is hard as f***!

112Raining Blood - Slayer

This is way too low

113The Negative One - Slipknot

This song isn't particularly hard as a whole, but when the China cymbal makes an appearance, it makes a VERY fast appearance

114Assassin - Muse

One of the hardest drum songs I've heard.

This song took me week to play this. Very hard! - Mumbizz01

117Toad - CreamV2 Comments
118Chop Suey! - System of a Down
