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
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"V 1 Comment
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.
Even though it isn't metal, the odd timing with the jazziness and how fast it is for a ride cymbal is one thing, but the fact that its played so quietly makes playing fast on toms and the off splashes on the hi-hat even more difficult. And with almost randomly timed fills with no pick up its hard to get every beat in. - Drummer32456
This is probably the most underrated yet quintessential RUSH song (similar but different to Villa). Neil is at his best - time sig changes, tubular bells, blocks. He makes the percussion sing the song. Thanks to those geniuses who voted this on the list.
This song is near impossible to play as well and constant utility of the drummer, even during the beginning. This deserves top 10 easy, only Rush isn't popular like Led Zeppelin and typically underrated
Wow. This is top 30 material!
Xanadu is an amazing song, the fills are impossible and so complex, youve really gotta be a freak of nature to play this song well, and you need about 6000000$ to spend on drum materials.
This song is a nightmare, if you are playing it on a regular kit! I am pleased to see that someone added it in! Cheers
I know it's a drum machine...but too funky to leave out
Drums are crazy later in the song. I played this on drums and my hands got sore!
It's just too fast. Can't play it for more than 2 minutes.
I almost strained myself playing this
This is probably one of the easiest songs. Meg White is one of the worst drummers on the planet. I could teach someone who doesn't play drums this song in maybe 5-10 minutes.
This isn't even that hard. It's not even hard. - naFrovivuS
How did this become hard, iv'e listened to the song and it isn't anywhere near hard
Meg white is an awful drummer lol why is this on hereV 1 Comment
To have so many Travis Barker songs ahead of Nicko is just plain wrong. Nicko has been described by several other drummers as "the octopus" not to mention no double bass drums...only one leg pumping out beats that mere mortals would require two.
One of the few songs that I've not been able to drum properly. Never been so challenged in my life.
If you like broken limbs try playing this one...V 3 Comments
