Top Ten Best Drum Songs

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Paradise City - Guns N' Roses
42 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.

43 Beast and the Harlot - Avenged Sevenfold

The complex double bass patterns alone would take months, especially for beginners. Not to mention the solo and dynamic's involved would give most a run for their money.

44 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.

45 2112 - Rush

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

46 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.

47 Bullet With Butterfly Wings - Smashing Pumpkins
48 Wake Me Up When September Ends - Green Day
49 Sunday Bloody Sunday - U2


50 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

51 Down With the Sickness - Disturbed
52 Raining Blood - Slayer
53 Fool in the Rain - Led Zeppelin

Deserves to be way higher

54 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.

55 Toad - Cream
56 Everlong - The Foo Fighters
57 No Life - Slipknot
58 Toxicity - System of a Down
59 Giving In - Adema
60 Evil Angel - Breaking Benjamin
