The Contenders: Page 8

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

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

143 In My Time of Dying - Led Zeppelin In 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

144 The Ballroom Blitz - The Sweet The Ballroom Blitz - The Sweet

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

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

Ben Gillies is a tank

147 Make Total Destroy - Periphery Make Total Destroy - Periphery

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

148 Incomudro - Kansas Incomudro - Kansas

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

149 Jesus of Suburbia - Green Day Jesus 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.

150 Cygnus X-1 - Rush Cygnus X-1 - Rush

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

151 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana Smells 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

152 Ants of the Sky - Between the Buried and Me Ants of the Sky - Between the Buried and Me

Very nice, needs to be rated higher...

153 Where Eagles Dare - Iron Maiden Where 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.

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

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

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

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