Top Ten Best Drum Solos of All Time

The Top Ten

1 Yyz - Rush

yes

Listen to the Exit Stage Left version of this song, and you'll be blown away! - Medmac

Neil peart is the man.

2 Forty-Six & 2 - Tool

This has to be one of the best drum solos ever, partly because

He does some measures that are intentionally offbeat. but it sounds cool so...

3 Beast and the Harlot - Avenged Sevenfold

Easily their best drums of any song.

4 Moby Dick - Led Zeppelin

This should be number one. Especially the live version. This drum solo blew me away. - MontyPython

Should be 1st

5 The Grudge - Tool

This drum solo was the perfect way to end this song. couldn't think of a better ending.

6 Sweet Leaf - Black Sabbath

Bill Ward is a master drummer.

7 In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida - Iron Butterfly

Hard rock's "long" drum solos were invented with this, which allowed radio DJ's to go to the bathroom, or drug-ingesting hippies to simply pass out for awhile.

8 Ticks and Leeches - Tool

The whole song should've been a drum solo. I can't get enough of how crazy and awesome the drums are in this song. - NuMetalManiak

9 Beating On Deaths Door - Lamb of God
10 Carry On - Avenged Sevenfold

One of their greatest solos of all time.

The Contenders

11 Third Eye - Tool

Awesome ending to this one.

12 Hot For Teacher - Van Halen

No love for Alex Van Halen using 4 kicks at once? And also correct me if I'm wrong but isn't this the only drum solo to never have been prefectly recreated? Should be wayy higher.

13 Toad - Cream

The great Ginger Baker; even Eric Clapton set down his guitar to watch this one.

14 Golden Slumbers/The End - The Beatles

Ringo proves he had first-rate solo skills; most of the time his responsibility was simply to keep time with the phenomenal Lennon/McCartney compositions, but he let it rip on this one.

15 Rat Salad- Black Sabbath

This song is the best!
