Top 10 Songs With the Best Drum Solos

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Soul Sacrifice - Santana

This kid is beating the hell out of these drums the entire song but when he gets to his solo, he takes it to another level!

Mike Shrieve on drums and Jose Areas just nailed it on this one! This is my favorite of all time.

Ranked too low
once in a life time

22 Tank - Emerson, Lake and Palmer

Oh, sorry didn't see this one! Number 1 for me

23 Won't Get Fooled Again - The Who

This solo may not be very fast like many others. But personally I like this solo. It's got the best sound. - zxm

Come On People No love for the guys who can never have any substitutes?

It's not bad, keith moon after all...

24 Stargazer - Rainbow

My mind if blown that this is not in the top 10! Look this song up and listen to the intro. That's the drum solo. It's an 11 second long blistering, adrenaline filled excellence in drumming execution by Cozy Powell. A great start to a masterpiece of a song!

This is not only one of the best drum solos, but probably the one of the best intros in the entire music industry. It just puts you into scene, the damn energy man. Surprised is not top 5.

25 Time - Pink Floyd

One of the best intros/drum solos of all time.

26 The Mule - Deep Purple

The live version on Made in Japan has a spectacular drum solo around 5 minutes long.

Absolutely fantastic! Ian Paice is a master!

How can it be it's not on the top?!
It's the best drum solo ever.
Since I heard it I became drums fun!

27 Forty Six & 2 - Tool

The very best drum solo by the very best drummer

Why is this one not among the first 5?
