Top Ten Best Drum Songs

Drummers. Fast. Skilled. Incredible. You name it. The SONGS, though, matter. Here are the best.

The Top Ten

1 Moby Dick - Led Zeppelin

Most drummers think there are people who can drum better than Bonham, those people use double bass kick to make crazy beats. Bonham only used one pedal and could go just as fast, which made him awesome

Truly phenomenal footwork there! John bonham was a pioneer of the heel-toe technique. He mastered it in the 1969 song "Good Times Bad Times".

Great song but there are other songs most difficult then this for Led Zeppelin like Fool In The Rain or Achilles Last Stand
Rip bonham
Thank you for make me drumming

he is cool

5 YYZ - Rush

Although the studio version of this song is great, the live version from "Exit... Stage Left" is incredible. Not only does it feature the same awesome drumming from the studio album combined with an insane drum solo in the middle. The best drum song from anything, studio or live. - lavillaof2112

This is an amazing song by Rush. If you can play this your awesome

A no brainer. Simply the greatest instrumental ever.

Hands down the best song to drum too.if you can

6 My Generation - The Who

The massive crazy noise of Moon the Loon - The Who would not have been The Who without his input. Maybe technically not the best, but he sure had a highly original awesome sound. A great advert for English made Premier Drums.

Keith moon is the best drummer of all time. he only had to use one microphone to get the sound he wanted. People who drum know how hard that is.

7 Ticks and Leeches - Tool

Danny Carey's style is so clean and fast... I've never heard some one playing like him.

Danny Carey is god... Seriously I think he is.

Danny is one of the greatest of all time... odd beats, always in time and more creative than mosts

Danny Carey is CRAZY in this song!

8 21st Century Schizoid Man - King Crimson

Mind bending playing. Very few drummers can claim to have had a track this. They not only kept time on such an influential, epic, rocking track, but also helped to shape the sound of it to such a degree. Bravo to Michael Giles. Bravo. One for the ages.

Smells Like Teen Spirit at 5 is priceless! This song is hard to keep up with.

9 Your Betrayal - Bullet for My Valentine

The drummer is ridiculous in this song. If you don't get pumped up listening to the intro, then you aren't human

The bass drum is so fluent throughout the chorus.

Love the starting. They rocked it. #peter_Angelov

10 Tom Sawyer - Rush

Rush rocks, Neil is a God, Tom Sawyer is the main hymn (along with YYZ)

Rush has a collection of some of the best instrumentalists in each area, and Neil on drums is no exception!

Because you are a knob

Very hard to play

The Contenders

11 It Never Ends - Bring Me the Horizon

Such a hard song to play on drums

12 Cold - Axewound
13 Brianstorm - Arctic Monkeys

this song begin so good with drum beat and then Alex turner start his voice and the drum beat slower. At the end the drum beat faster again Ow, it so spectacular!

wow whos brian aneeway awesome drums though

Amazing song, drum beat is kept in the sweet spot between complicated and easy while at a fantastic pace!

Definitely the best modern rock song. - BrianScott01

14 Strife - Trivium
15 Pull Harder On the Strings of Your Martyr - Trivium

This drum beat gives me life

16 Bat Country - Avenged Sevenfold

I think this is the most amazing drums song, just hear the drums in the song, this song is composed by "The rev" sulivan (R.I. P) He is considerated one of the best drummers ever, The song contains good rhythms and great smacks, because this is a heavy metal song, and I think this is the best drum song of all time

Perfection! How the hell did the Rev do that? Such an underrated drummer at his best in the song!

Amazing double bass. Lots of energy. Rev was extraordinary!

good

17 Blacken the Cursed Sun - Lamb of God

This and Descending (same band) are some of the best drumming I've ever heard

18 Wrath Upon Ourselves - As I Lay Dying
19 Fire - The Jimi Hendrix Experience

This has to be number 1. And number 2. Technically brilliant and fits seamlessly with the song.

This is awesome drumming by Mitch Mitchell who drives the song along.

once you listen yull be experinced
