Hardest Songs to Play On Drums


The Contenders: Page 10

181 Waking the Demon - Bullet for My Valentine
182 The Great Debate - Dream Theater
183 Sunday Bloody Sunday (Live) - U2
184 Deliverance - Opeth

Great song, very difficult to get down due to the changes in tempo. The Ending is totally classic. If you have not heard the song check it out, you will get it! Cheers

185 Anubis - Opus Rex

The ride cymbal pattern in the bridge section cripples the hands! Tough song, do not play after Tom Saywer!

186 Streets - Avenged Sevenfold
187 Amen Brother - The Winstons
188 The Aftermath (G3) - Escape the Fate
189 To Keep from Getting Burned - Motionless In White
190 Take the Time - The S.O.S. Band
191 What May Be Safely Written - Nile

In some terms so easy... But for the sakes of the drummers legs and stamina

192 Oath of the Abyss - Devildriver

Everybody talk and talk but I see no devildriver here, just go and listen this.

193 Mother North - Satyricon

Very fast double bass and filled with blast beats of all kinds. Very technical and lengthy which don't make it easy for the drummer in the slightest way.

194 Recharger - Fear Factory
195 Cherub Rock - The Smashing Pumpkins
196 Song for the Dead - Queens of the Stone Age
197 Black Tongue - Mastodon
198 Unsquare Dance - Dave Brubeck

I'm very surprised this is the only Jazz song on the list. Jazz and Swing are without a doubt the hardest types of music to play, followed by rock and metal. This song is all rimshots and hand claps, but being written in 7/4 time means that this thing is a beast. But if you're able to manage it, its extremely fun to play.

199 Freezing Moon - Mayhem
200 10000 Days - Tool
