81 What a Horrible Night to Have a Curse - The Black Dahlia Murder What a Horrible Night to Have a Curse - The Black Dahlia Murder

It sounds difficult but anyone can play something that sounds difficult if you pound the drums without rhythm or technicality adding a few drum fills here and there

82 Rat Salad - Black Sabbath V 1 Comment
83 Vicarious - Tool

Danny Carey makes it sound easy. He can just throw a drum fill wherever he wants and the song still sounds amazing. Plus, the triplets at the end are incredible.

This song looks simple when watching someone do a drum cover but it isn't easy I recommend playing this song and other hard songs when you have at least 4 yrs of experience with the drums before attempting this and other hard songs.

84 AEnima - Tool V 1 Comment
85 Blinded In Chains - Avenged Sevenfold Blinded In Chains - Avenged Sevenfold V 2 Comments
86 Fury of the Storm
87 The Art of Dying - Gojira The Art of Dying - Gojira

I was wondering when this would turn up on the list. I think the main time signature is something like 23/16. Yeah, good luck! Ha ha!

Trying to play along to the first pattern is insane. Interlude takes a lot of stamina also.

88 The Legend of the Rent - Here Comes the Kraken The Legend of the Rent - Here Comes the Kraken

Whoever the drummer is for this band, if you did all this with just two pedals... That's amazing.

89 Basket Case - Green Day Basket Case - Green Day V 2 Comments
90 Roundabout - Yes Roundabout - Yes

Yes is right up there with King Crimson and Tool in my book.

One of the best progressive rock in the world

I can't believe no one listed this yet

91 Close to the Edge - Yes Close to the Edge - Yes

Only the bold dare try to transcribe this song. Start with the intro, when you get past that let me know.

Ok, all I want to say is this: what? This is highly unfair! most songs 1-20 or even 50 are just fast and no skil. Green Day? A7X? That's fast not technical. Listen to this whole song through and you will see not only is this not one of the hardest and greatest songs on the planet but one of the most complex drum songs you will ever see. Bill Brudford and yes, you are gods!

92 All Hope is Gone - Slipknot All Hope is Gone - Slipknot

One of the most difficult songs.

Math rock drums are usually personal, so it's probably easy for Nathan Camarena but impossible for everyone else. - Fiend

95 Blind - Korn Blind - Korn
96 Scatterbrain - Jeff Beck Scatterbrain - Jeff Beck

I don't really play drums, but I know this song is crazy hard on guitar, so I assumed the drums would be equally crazy. jeff beck is a monster either way

97 Aristocrat's Symphony - Versailles Aristocrat's Symphony - Versailles
98 Mastodon - Iron Tusk Mastodon - Iron Tusk
99 If 6 Was 9 - Jimi Hendrix If 6 Was 9 - Jimi Hendrix

Mitch's style and speed and jazz fusion can prove to be very difficult to match in many of Jimi Hendrix's songs. Another that should be on this list is "red house"

100 Don't Look Now, I'm Being Followed. Act Normal - Hands Like Houses Don't Look Now, I'm Being Followed. Act Normal - Hands Like Houses

Combines the styles of rock, metal, and jazz making it very unique and different to play with some very simple beats and very difficult ones.
