Best Punk Drummers


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Richie Ramone
22 Brooks Wackerman

If anyone does not know Brooks Wackerman please purchase a copy of any Bad Religion album over the past 10 years. I would choose The Empire Strikes first as his fills on this album are brilliant and you will never hear a better end to a song than Popular Consensus which he seems to play at half time and throws in some lovely fills. He is the definition of speed and finesse and I was lucky enough to see him live in London recently and truly outstanding.

Along with Josh Freese two of the most technical and talented punk drummers of all time.



Along with Freese, simply the best punk rock drummer out there. Bad Religion is not the same since he left.

How is he this low? The man is amazing both live and in studio. he's done tons of session work for other bands too, just mind blowing

23 Bob Bryar Bob Bryar
24 Zac Farro
25 Bill Stevenson

Probably the most underrated pop punk drummers in the list. Definitely in my top 5.

26 Rat Scabies

Rat played with the Damned the 1st UK punk band to Release a single a album & tour the USA. He is the daddy of british punk drummers and the beat behind New Rose the greatest punk song of all time!

Rat should be at the top of this list.

28 Meg White Meg White Megan Martha "Meg" White is an American drummer known for her work with Jack White in the Detroit rock duo The White Stripes.
29 Chuck Biscuits

Chuck Biscuits should be in the top 5,along with Felix Griffin and Bill Stevenson.

30 Adam Carson

His variation of style and speeds makes him versatile with any style of music. His drumming doesn't lose quality whether it be playing fast or slow, definitely up there with the best.

31 Joey Jordison Joey Jordison Joey Jordison, is an American musician, songwriter, and record producer best known for his work as the former drummer and co-songwriter for the heavy metal band Slipknot as well as guitarist in the Horror-punk band Murderdolls.
32 Dave Grohl Dave Grohl David Eric "Dave" Grohl is an American rock musician, multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, and producer. He is best known as the drummer for the grunge band Nirvana and the vocalist/guitarist for the alternative rock band Foo Fighters.

Actually though, nirvana's drumming was very punky and fast. give him some recognition

33 Don Bolles
34 Adam Jarvis
35 Scott Asheton
36 Dan Lumley

If the best punk producer Mass Giorgini says he's #1, then he's obviously #1.

40 Bomer Manzullo
