Hardest Songs to Play On Drums


The Contenders: Page 7

121 Gematria (Killing the Name) - Slipknot Gematria (Killing the Name) - Slipknot

This song took me week to play this. Very hard! - Mumbizz01

122 Toad - Cream Toad - Cream

Toad is to Cream as Moby Dick is to Led Zeppelin.

123 Chop Suey! - System of a Down Chop Suey! - System of a Down
124 Diluted - Slipknot Diluted - Slipknot

I checked out a drum cover of this song on YouTube, and believe me, it does NOT look easy. - NikBrusk

125 Loser - Beck Loser - Beck
126 Indians - Anthrax Indians - Anthrax
127 Triskelion Song
128 Ignotus Per Ignotium - Planet X

People on this site need to learn their music. While heavy metal and rock songs can have difficult drum playing, progressive music blows all other genres out of the water (other than maybe jazz). Virgil is by far the greatest living drummer, and any song of his is far more difficult than anything on this list so far. I'm a drummer by the way, for a good majority of my life as well.

129 Murder - This Is Not a Game of Who the F**k Are You Murder - This Is Not a Game of Who the F**k Are You

It's a death metal song then jumps to a jazz beat in the middle of it, then back to death metal. It's some pretty hard stuff. Also the song islandman by the same band is pretty tough too.

130 Spleen - Staind Spleen - Staind
131 Rocket Skates - Deftones Rocket Skates - Deftones

Not really that difficult

132 No More Sorrow - Linkin Park No More Sorrow - Linkin Park
133 Space Boogie - Jeff Beck Space Boogie - Jeff Beck V 1 Comment
134 Awake - Godsmack Awake - Godsmack
135 Black Metal ist Krieg - Nargaroth

I bet you can't play it.

136 6:00 - Dream Theater 6:00 - Dream Theater

Just an incredibly difficult and technical song! It has quite the hook also! Great opener for album!

137 MVP - Despised Icon MVP - Despised Icon

Absolutely agree here mate.
Intense beyond belief. I am a drummer myself and cannot comprehend how in the world this beast of a drummer can play this.
