Top 10 Songs with the Greatest Drum Beats
I cannot feel more assured as you guys when I read that "Levee Breaks" was at the top. Perfect combination of groove and power. It isn't about what John Bonham played, it's what he didn't play that makes the difference.
The effect of the echo and Bonham's groove makes this the most driving beat of all-time. A classic example of simple and sophisticated.
The beat is so catchy and rythmically in sync it is impossible not to like this drum beat. By far the most catchy beat of all-time! Nothing else comes close.
Ominous, full of bad portent, you just know that things are BAD
Neil Peart is the one who got me into percussion. He's not a drummer. He's a professor of percussion. His time signature, time changes are beyond this world. As if he has four arms and three legs, he does things an octopus couldn't play.. given an octopus could play. If I could play one-tenth of a tenth as well as him, I'd still have miles and miles to travel before I could play a tenth of what that man can play. Hats off to "The Professor"
Neil Peart the greatest drummer to have ever lived. Technical master but always plays what serves the song and every nuance of his drumming feels natural.
Always a great beat to play to!. Although you could put many Rush songs here, I think YYZ is one of Neil's highest points
Complex in it's odd time signature; yet easy to listen. Matches the whole song amazingly. -Neil awesome as always-
The best I know and keep in mind it was released in 1971! A complex beat that almost creats a stand-alone melody. It was way ahead of its time. Ian Paice is the most underrated drummer ever.
How is this not in hear! Just listen to Lars' drum beat during the "Darkness! " part! Every metal fan knows that best anywhere
On the song sample from iTunes below you can't hear the drum beat I mean.
I'm drummer... dude this is NOT easy to do at all! is an awesome song on drums and when I'm pissed I just play it like 2 times then I just caalm down, toxicity IS the song that will make me and my band get GOOD
The beat in this song is awesome, and yes it showed be in the top three
only one in top ten that has over 3 comments
FRICKEN AWESOME!, this drum beat is epic!
Should be number 1 by far
One of my favorite song ever
The intro proves it
yea I forgot about that one
Mate its too good
You just can't BEAT that!
The beat in this song is awesome. Deserves to be higher I think.
Bonzo or John Bonham... Nothing much to say.
...? All of AC/DC's drum beats are exactly the same... You could pick a random song by them and the beat is the same... Lame.
Simple beat, yet done with a better feel than anywhere else.
Unbelievable intro. Shows the skill of Alex Van Halen and just how underrated he is.
Ringo Starr, always so underrated in my humble opinion. His work on Tomorrow Never Knows is simply spellbinding. It's not just that beat, it's the sound of those skins as well. Never an overly flashy drummer, but Ringo Starr has creative style and subtlety that deserves attention.
Sends a shiver down my spine. I haven't heard anything like this before. A very unique beat.
Nobody could've played this like Ringo. An amazing beat and the sound is just so Ringo
This is very super beats
It's the best, no one can defeat this amazing beat! Disturbed rocks and this is one of their best song of al
Funky, yet aggressive. David Silveria is extremely underrated. Not relying on tons of double bass. I love the drums in this song
David is a epic drummer!
Its got an attitude very unlike u2's other material. Great riff by the edge! And Larry at his best! Sinister song!
Simple but very effective, makes the song
Not too hard, not too easy. I play this all the time and it is my favorite song to play on drums.
