Thanks Dub and Had A that inspired me to take up the drums.

His high hat progression and use of the bass drum convinced me to buy a drum set and jam along to Sublime's tunes.

Can't deny it, the man is an underrated genius.

Sublime is awesome. I would put bud in the top 10 if it were up to me. He is awesome he made me want to play

122 Chris Adler Chris Adler Christopher James Adler is an American drummer, best known as a member of the groove metal band Lamb of God.

Just listen to now you've got something to die for or ruin. His drumming is fast yet unique. Probably one of the best metal bands out there right now. Won best metal drummer. I don't know why he is this low?

How? How? 59?!?! He is undoubtedly the best... Nobody can question his sheer brilliance. How many other drummers in his genre actually play without triggers? He is the reason I started playing the drums.

Number 90, seriously? Chris is hands down the best drummer ever. Just listen to the final 20 seconds of Straight for the Sun. He should defiantly be in the top 10.

Listen to Black Label and then vote for him. You will want to after that song - heavymetalrocker777

Some amazing Megadeth solos. Also check out his work with Alice on YouTube.

125 Leon Ray Legoh
126 Setyo Nugroho
127 Gusti Hendy
128 Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo
129 Brandon Scott
130 Peter Erskine

One random sample to hear him is on Maynard Ferguson's New Vintage. I never tire of his playing. Should be in top 10- most drummers know that.

131 Ed Thigpen

Love his cymbal legato and brush work.

132 Richard Christy

Just listen to the album "The Sound Of Perseverance"... songs like "Scavenger of human Sorrow" "Bite The Pain"...R.I. P Chuck...

How is Richard Christy #144 he is a drum god. Listen to the sound of perseverance by the originators of death metal death. Or any song by charred walls of the damned (a very underrated band) ghost town and manifestations are both amazing songs with christys freakish drumming leadin the way. He diserves to be in the top 5 at least behind only maybe kieth moon, Mitch Mitchell, and cozy Powell these at the kings of the drumset

133 Matt Halpern

Not a legend yet, People are yet to discover him and witness his talent. But this guy is far superior than anybody on this list when it comes to skills

134 Martin Lopez
135 Mike Derosier

Mike is as good or better than any one on this list.

Listen to Barracuda and you will agree.

136 Peter Criss
137 Tetsu Kikuchi

Tetsu Kikuchi is one of the best (If not the best) drummers out there. I hope everyone votes for him. D'erlanger is one of the best bands, his fills and rhythm are just incredible. Long life to Tetsu Kikuchi! The best drummer of the world!

One of the best and fastest rock drummers in Japan from the band D'ERLANGER. He was the drummer of SAVER TIGER and ZI:KILL. He and CIPHER created CRAZE after D'ERLANGER disbanded and in 2007 his main band reunited again. - ronluna

138 Chris Slade
139 Matt Helders

This guy is an absolute beast real shame he is not on top. Listen to This House is a Circus or Pretty Visitors and tell me he doesn't deserve to be sitting in the top 10. When I wrote this comment his name was not even on the list.

Listen to Brianstorm by Arctic Monkeys and your mind will be blown, the drums in it are incredible

Beastly drummer. Listen to brianstorm and tell me he shouldn't be number 1

The View from the Afternoon? This guy is amazing and should be way further up the list!
