Hardest Songs to Play On Drums


The Contenders: Page 9

161 Stoiber on Drums - Jonny K├Ânig

This is a drum adaption of a stuttered speech by a politician made into a song.

162 In My Time of Dying - Led Zeppelin

Seriously, the only reason this isn't in top 15 is because it's one of the lesser known Zeppelin songs... You can't compare with Bonham's metronome-power but you can PRETEND to play it. Cute...

Apparently no one has ever heard of the great Bonham go off his rocker about 6 mins in

163 The Ballroom Blitz - The Sweet

Just listen to the beginning of Ballroom Blitz, and you'll understand.

164 Chasing Shadows - Deep Purple
165 Israel's Son - Silverchair

Ben Gillies is a tank

166 Make Total Destroy - Periphery

At least you'll have to listen to this, this song is full of polymetric metric modulation and linear pattern

167 Incomudro - Kansas

Incumudro-Kansas I have been drumming for 39 years I will never get it perfect.

168 Cygnus X-1 - Rush

Obviously the technical songs won't get the credit fast songs will, this is easy up there in top 20

169 Ants of the Sky - Between the Buried and Me

Very nice, needs to be rated higher...

170 All Nightmare Long - Metallica
171 In the End - Linkin Park
172 Somewhere I Belong - Linkin Park
173 Bleed It Out - Linkin Park

Let's not forget that nearly impossible drum solos that Rob Bourdon does at concerts

174 Given Up - Linkin Park
175 Baby's First Coffin - The Dillinger Escape Plan

Try this one if you never want to play drums again...

176 Wipeout - The Surfaris

What this was already on the list?

177 Waking the Demon - Bullet for My Valentine
178 The Great Debate - Dream Theater
179 Sunday Bloody Sunday (Live) - U2
180 Deliverance - Opeth

Great song, very difficult to get down due to the changes in tempo. The Ending is totally classic. If you have not heard the song check it out, you will get it! Cheers
