Hardest Songs to Play On Drums


The Contenders: Page 8

141 Triskelion Song
142 The Black Page - Frank Zappa
143 One - Metallica

Although the beginning of the song is not exactly difficult to play, as the song gets heavier and faster, you start to really notice the difficulty and complexity it has, especially with the "All that I see" part, with the repeating sextuplet double bass patterns.

144 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.

145 Eyeless - Slipknot

You need the view a cover! Is the hardest one of all this list

146 Radar Love - Golden Earring

The hardest song I can play on drums right now.

147 Spleen - Staind
148 Rocket Skates - Deftones

Not really that difficult

149 No More Sorrow - Linkin Park
150 Wish - Linkin Park
151 Space Boogie - Jeff Beck

Simon Phillips playing this track
Extremely fast tempo

152 Black Metal ist Krieg - Nargaroth

I bet you can't play it.

153 6:00 - Dream Theater

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

154 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.

I can play all except that bass drum in the first part... Does he use a double bass pedal? I'm seriously asking a question
