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
The drum solo in the middle of the song is the meca of all Jazz drum solos. The technicality, speed, and precision is insane. Some of the fills played by Steve Gadd on this track are crazy good.
I came here to vote for this song. Aaand it's at 177 - UncommonLoon
Hard as hell time signature, all over the map, 20 minutes long. Even the first could be considered harder then most of the songs on this list.
My band plays this, and as the drummer I've spend almost a year learning this.. and I've played drums for over 25 years.. "Eruption" is in 5/4 and "Manticore"is in 9/8.. it is hard as f***!
One of the hardest drum songs I've heard.V 1 Comment
How this song wasn't already on the list is beyond me.
This song took me week to play this. Very hard! - Mumbizz01
Toad is to Cream as Moby Dick is to Led Zeppelin.
I checked out a drum cover of this song on YouTube, and believe me, it does NOT look easy. - NikBrusk
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.
Not really that difficult
