Hardest Songs to Play On Drums

The Contenders: Page 8XW

141Who Wrote Holden Caulfield? - Green Day
142Stoiber on Drums - Jonny K├Ânig

This is a drum adaption of a stuttered speech by a politician made into a song.

143In My Time of Dying - Led Zeppelin

Seriously, the only reason this isn't in top 15 is because it's one of the lesser known Zeppelin songs... You can't compare with Bonham's metronome-power but you can PRETEND to play it. Cute...

Apparently no one has ever heard of the great Bonham go off his rocker about 6 mins in

144The Ballroom Blitz - The Sweet

Just listen to the beginning of Ballroom Blitz, and you'll understand.

145Chasing Shadows - Deep Purple
146Israel's Son - Silverchair

Ben Gillies is a tank

147Make Total Destroy - Periphery

At least you'll have to listen to this, this song is full of polymetric metric modulation and linear pattern

148Incomudro - Kansas

Incumudro-Kansas I have been drumming for 39 years I will never get it perfect.

149Jesus of Suburbia - Green Day

6 songs in one. 9 and a half minutes in length. Tempo and time signature varying per a measure sometimes. Complex fills.

150Roundabout - Yes

Yes is right up there with King Crimson and Tool in my book.

One of the best progressive rock in the world

I can't believe no one listed this yet

151Cygnus X-1 - Rush

Obviously the technical songs won't get the credit fast songs will, this is easy up there in top 20

152Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana

This song is easy I played it in my high school music club lol

Not really... there's plenty of harder dave grohl songs

153Ants of the Sky - Between the Buried and Me

Very nice, needs to be rated higher...

154Where Eagles Dare - Iron Maiden

To have so many Travis Barker songs ahead of Nicko is just plain wrong. Nicko has been described by several other drummers as "the octopus" not to mention no double bass drums...only one leg pumping out beats that mere mortals would require two.

155All Nightmare Long - Metallica
156In the End - Linkin Park
157Somewhere I Belong - Linkin Park
158Bleed It Out - Linkin Park

Let's not forget that nearly impossible drum solos that Rob Bourdon does at concerts

159Given Up - Linkin Park
160Baby's First Coffin - The Dillinger Escape Plan

Try this one if you never want to play drums again...
