102 Mo ’N Herb’s Vacation - Frank Zappa Mo ’N Herb’s Vacation - Frank Zappa
103 777-9311 - The Time 777-9311 - The Time

This song is a nightmare, if you are playing it on a regular kit! I am pleased to see that someone added it in! Cheers

I know it's a drum machine...but too funky to leave out

104 Walk With Me In Hell - Lamb of God Walk With Me In Hell - Lamb of God
105 Caught in a Mosh - Anthrax Caught 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.

106 Emenius Sleepus - Green Day Emenius Sleepus - Green Day
107 Panic Song - Green Day Panic Song - Green Day
108 Platypus (I Hate You) - Green Day Platypus (I Hate You) - Green Day

I almost strained myself playing this

109 C***crusher - Infant Annihilator C***crusher - Infant Annihilator V 3 Comments
110 A Nightmare to Remember - Dream Theater A Nightmare to Remember - Dream Theater
111 Seven Nation Army - The White Stripes Seven 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

113 Tarkus - Emerson, Lake & Palmer Tarkus - 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***!

114 Raining Blood - Slayer Raining Blood - Slayer V 1 Comment
115 Assassin - Muse Assassin - Muse

One of the hardest drum songs I've heard.
