Top Ten Best Drum Songs

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Bleed - Meshuggah

How is this only 46!? This song is so difficult the drummer has admitted to almost not putting it on the album! By far one of the most technical drum songs ever recorded.

You have no idea what you are missing if you haven't heard this. Go ahead now!

Don't get me wrong, I love Neil Perth and he's a god amongst drummers, but this song... Jesus if I only had the technical skillset to explain how hard it is I would be happy let alone be able to ever play it.

42 In the Air Tonight - Phil Collins

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.

43 Bullet With Butterfly Wings - Smashing Pumpkins
44 Wake Me Up When September Ends - Green Day
45 Sunday Bloody Sunday - U2


46 Down With the Sickness - Disturbed
47 Beast and the Harlot - Avenged Sevenfold
48 Would? - Alice in Chains

The drums in this song have such a cool beat, I think that's what got me into Alice In Chains. Maybe not the best drums ever, but in terms of how well they fit with the song, I think that's an arguable criterion. - Dorito

Agreed; amazing drums (and bass) on this song.

49 We Will Rock You - Queen

One of the best live moments in rock history is when the crowd is waiting for roger taylor to start We Will Rock You

Now this is what really deserves to be called a "Drum Song"! ; because it�'s obviously based on it.

50 Raining Blood - Slayer
51 Toad - Cream
52 Everlong - The Foo Fighters
53 2112 - Rush

Has to be one of, if not, the greatest drum work I've ever heard. Surprised it's only #44

54 No Life - Slipknot
55 Song for the Dead - Queens of the Stone Age

Like seriously! How the hell is this song not at least in the top 20!? I mean goddam it's amazing! That drum intro is so raw!

I honestly don't understand how this song isn't in the top 10 and smells like teen spirit is. get a grip, people

56 The Dance of Eternity - Dream Theater

How is this not the best ever? A mind-boggling 105 meter changes, double bass, speedy rolls, complexity. This song is the epitome of drumming.

This drumming is just godly. The time signatures, the complexity, Portnoy has it all.

57 Toxicity - System of a Down
58 Giving In - Adema
59 Evil Angel - Breaking Benjamin
60 Bad - U2
