Top Ten Best Drum Songs

Drummers. Fast. Skilled. Incredible. You name it. The SONGS, though, matter. Here are the best.
The Top Ten
1 Eyeless - Slipknot Eyeless - Slipknot Cover Art

Joey Jordison is truly my favorite drummer ever. Eyeless is my favorite slipknot song as well, and he is able to keep up some of the fastest beats and creates some of the best base drum patterns I have ever seen. Huge inspiration to my drum playing!

Should really be top of the list, whether or not you like Slipknot this song has the best drumming simply because of the skill and pace involved.

Slipknot has the best drummer in the world. He can keep a beat and is like crazy fast. It's only fare he be ontop

Slipknot definitely, but not sure it is eyeless. I am more sure about scissors or eeyore

2 Your Betrayal - Bullet for My Valentine Your Betrayal - Bullet for My Valentine Cover Art

I listened to all top10 and I would vote for this! The drum beat is consistent all through out. Bang your head from start to end!

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

3 Moby Dick - Led Zeppelin Moby Dick - Led Zeppelin Cover Art

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

Wow people voting for the arctic monkeys! HORRIBLE! Really those who have voted for them don't know what a drum is... Listen tto Led Zeppelin (John Bonham), The Who (Keith Moon) or The Rush (Neil Peart) and maybe you'll get an idea...

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".

I love drum solos to no end. The sound of the impressive beat blows me away... Which is why this is my 3rd favorite Led Zeppelin song.

4 It Never Ends - Bring Me the Horizon It Never Ends - Bring Me the Horizon Cover Art

Such a hard song to play on drums

5 Cold - Axewound Cold - Axewound Cover Art
6 Strife - Trivium Strife - Trivium Cover Art
7 Pull Harder On the Strings of Your Martyr - Trivium Pull Harder On the Strings of Your Martyr - Trivium Cover Art

This drum beat gives me life

8 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana Cover Art

I love this song drumming is at a good level not to difficult

Best by far, Dave Grohl can still keep an epic drum solo

Fast drums and everything else you need for a song.

Dave Grohl and nirvana what a mix with teen spirit

9 Blacken the Cursed Sun - Lamb of God Blacken the Cursed Sun - Lamb of God Cover Art

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

10 Wrath Upon Ourselves - As I Lay Dying Wrath Upon Ourselves - As I Lay Dying Cover Art
The Contenders
11 Brianstorm - Arctic Monkeys Brianstorm - Arctic Monkeys Cover Art

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

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!

Definitely the best modern rock song.

I agree, but "Pretty Visitors" is mine opinion numero uno

12 Ticks and Leeches - Tool Ticks and Leeches - Tool Cover Art

Danny Carey is crazy. He's the kind of drum that with play something and you'll have to think about what he just did because it more than likely advanced Rythmes and odd times

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

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.

13 Hot for Teacher - Van Halen Hot for Teacher - Van Halen Cover Art

My kid favorite song and he loves drums. I rest my case (I like more bass guitars though)

Have you ever heard I drum kit sound like a car? Well this solo does it!

The fact that this is under a bunch of metalcore songs is just odd.

AVH is for the most part overshadowed by his brother and it's a shame really

14 Freak On a Leash - Korn Freak On a Leash - Korn Cover Art
15 Tom Sawyer - Rush Tom Sawyer - Rush Cover Art

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

It is a sin to not include this in the top 10, rush is commonly underrated in these top 10s

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

Almost impossible to play. What a Legend. Super Song

16 YYZ - Rush YYZ - Rush Cover Art

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.

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

A no brainer. Simply the greatest instrumental ever.

This is sooo fun to play

17 Bat Country - Avenged Sevenfold Bat Country - Avenged Sevenfold Cover Art

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

Man I saw this while listening to it! This song is awesome and the rev did a magnificent job writting it! It is a master piece!

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!

18 My Generation - The Who My Generation - The Who Cover Art

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.

Oldest beats of Who are, some I'm for interesting in.

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.

19 21st Century Schizoid Man - King Crimson 21st Century Schizoid Man - King Crimson Cover Art

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.

20 The Diary of Jane - Breaking Benjamin The Diary of Jane - Breaking Benjamin Cover Art

How is this in 21st place... it should be in top 10... !

21 When the Levee Breaks - Led Zeppelin When the Levee Breaks - Led Zeppelin Cover Art

Should be top ten the drumming in this' song make it sound like none other song before or after it.

Simple yet unforgettable! Bonham's drums were something else

Bonzo's drums get banged harder than Kim Kardashian

What's this doing all the way down here?

22 All Nightmare Long - Metallica All Nightmare Long - Metallica Cover Art

Really compicated drumming by lars... But its fantastic! One of his best with double kicks

23 Fire - The Jimi Hendrix Experience Fire - The Jimi Hendrix Experience Cover Art

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.

Mitch Mitchell was masterful

My favorite drum song.

24 Basket Case - Green Day Basket Case - Green Day Cover Art

Tre Cool's crazy fills! Just awesome. Tre has a sound of his own, which can't be matched by anyone else!

Good luck mastering drums on this one. Great fills and drumming!

Fast and perfectly executed, a very lively song

Tre Cool is one of the best drummers of all time.

25 In the Air Tonight - Phil Collins In the Air Tonight - Phil Collins Cover Art

Your right, he is such an underrated drummer unfortunately a lot of people only know him as a singer and drumming on in the air tonight. Listen to the earlier stuff with genesis!

Listen to Phil on early genesis and brand x, he had technique, speed and most importantly feel.


The moment the drums come in is so iconic, most people would recognize the song as being Phil Collins just on that
