Top Ten Hardest Dream Theater Songs to Play On the Drums

The Top Ten

1 Dance of Eternity
2 Hell's Kitchen

A great and very underrated song with insane drumming in it. I mean, it is like a drum solo with music in the background!

3 Panic Attack
4 Sacrificed Sons

The ending is fantastic! ! !

5 The Enemy Inside
6 The Best of Times

The second verse took me over two weeks to master

This whole album should be in the top ten

7 Metropolis, Pt.1 The Miracle and the Sleeper

Love the sound of that drum

8 A Nightmare to Remember A Nightmare to Remember

This is the song that inspired me to come to this list. Drums never jump out at me in songs, but in this one they did the entire time, because it just sounds insanely difficult. Listen to this and then vote. - Songsta41

This song is the hardest in my opinion because of the physical endurance it takes to play accurately for the entirety of the song.

The double bass is nsane and the intro is just simply impossible for a human being to accomplish.

What? I've voted for this one like twenty times and it still hasnt moved!

9 Count of Tuscany

Avery good song right here

10 A Rite of Passage

I tried playing this song a couple of times and still can't get it.

The Contenders

11 Octavarium
12 Honor Thy Father
13 Strange Deja Vu Strange Deja Vu
14 The Glass Prison
15 Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence

(Yes I'm counting the entire song). This song is one of the most complicated (and long) songs I've ever heard, and even in what sounds like just an easy jam (goodnight kiss solo) it's still difficult. Mike Portnoy is a drumming legend, and his raw emotion is always converted to his playing.
