    1. That one that I don't know the name of with Buddy Rich.
    2. Topsie, Part [?] (also don't know the name and not even sure the drumming is so special, but it has a major drum part and I kind of liked it when I used to hear it on an oldies station that changed to Jack FM)
    3. Wipeout (sorry)
    4. That song that opens with the ba-boom ba-boom ba-boom ba-boom before the saxaphone starts in. There's singing in there too somewhere. I think it's called Shotgun.
    5. Ba Ba Lu.

  • i couldn't find a thread for this elsewhere, but if there is one, give me a good yelling at. i'm sure i'm not the only drummer who has once or twice sat down at there kit and couldn't think of anything to play. so this is a thread for suggesting fun songs. emphasis on FUN. i don't mean songs with hard drums. that means that you can pick a white stripes song, as long as it's fun to play (i don't see it happening really). i must ask that you only post on the thread if you have a suggeston. you are still alowed to talk about other peoples choices, but post one of your own as well, otherwise we'll all end up talking about one song. all genres are open, and have fun!

    my first song is "generator" by the foo fighters. it's the 5th song on their 3rd album. it's a really great song, and it really shows off taylor hawkins' ability to play for the song. it's not too hard to learn and it can be as quiet or loud as you like.
    - ewanlaing, 9 years ago
  • The whole "Play" album by Moby.
    Some of the most grooving programmed beats I've heard, it like magically practicing feel and perfect time at the same time!

    "Heart of the Sunrise" by Yes
    brilliant drum parts in this song. I think it makes a great lesson for composing drum parts in a song...

    the "Haunted" album by Poe
    Josh Freese on drums. Need I say more?

    Any Nikka Costa album
    amazing songwriting, and the best drummers on the planet on all the tracks. ?uestlove, Blackwell, Laboriel, even Lenny Kravitz!

    "Take Five" by Dave Brubeck
    learnto play along with the solo, too. And then find live versions and learn those too! Because when Morello plays it live, it gets insane.

    Weather Report, Frank Zappa, Bela Fleck, among others also are great to play along with...

    I usually don't practice along with the choppiest music, I usually play along with records to practice time and feel (Even though sometimes I let loose and go crazy over a tune or more often an intstrumental). If anybody does have some great chop heavy records I should practice with, let me know!
    - aahznightsky, 9 years ago
  • 'Pamela' by Toto, the seventh one is the album i think...

  • Faith No More ~ Angel Dust (Album)... Good grooves!

    Skindred ~ Babylon (Album)... Challenging!

    Mr. Bungle ~ Mr. Bungle (Album)... Do I really have to say why?

    Fantomas ~ Fantomas (Album)... It's self tourture to try and keep up with!
    - NaturalRaz, 9 years ago
  • moby is an interesting choice. i will definately check that out. my second song is "song for the dead" by queens of the stone age. this shows off grohl as a drummer more than any other song i know. it's really good heavy rock stuff, with a great intro.
    - ewanlaing, 9 years ago
  • Houses Of the Holy!

    I've never had more fun than when I drum to that album [excluding No Quarter].
    - dothecrunge, 9 years ago
  • When I would like to challenge myself, I usually end up with anything by The Who, other than that - when I feel low, I always pop the "Back in black" live album by AC/DC and drum away to "long way to the top" - which I live the lyrics to, and "Back in black"...

    Other than that, I usually just play along with what's in the CD-player since my wife used it...
    - Jesper Varn, 9 years ago
  • Balltongue-Korn
    Chi-Korn
    Sober-Tool, actually any tool song is fun and challenging to play

  • Houses Of the Holy!

    I've never had more fun than when I drum to that album [excluding No Quarter].

    That's one of my favourite Led Zeppelin tunes! But admittedly not a drummers track.

    For good solid fun I'd recommend almost anything by Cream and Jimi Hendrix.

    That is an excellent, excellent song. I couldn't believe my ears when I first heard that song. That's Bruford...some of the stuff he came up with...

    I meant Houses Of the Holy, the album.

    You know:

    The Song Remains the Same
    The Rain Song
    Over the Hills and Far Away
    The Crunge [do it!]
    Dancing Days
    D'yer Mak'er
    No Quarter

    The Song Remains the Same album are killer!

  • run to the hills is wicked, i was trying to work it out today, i love his single bass triplets.
    - mr_hayward_99, 9 years ago
  • Hi, I'm glad you chose this thread because I love to play "Ants Marching" by the Dave Matthews band. I love to Immulate every one of Carter's chops on that song. Everytime I see a new concert I get more and more excited because I know I'm going to learn every chop and swing he does and immulate it on my drumset.
    - timpanigrip23, 9 years ago

    - Jesper Varn, 9 years ago
  • wow! some hard rock choices appearing in the thread now. something i played all the way through that was suprisingly fun was "jesus of suburbia" by green day. when played with the track, it can be a really satisfying song to play, and not too hard to learn.

    How would it be missing the point if your top 5 drumming songs contain just that? We all like things for our own reasons.

    My top 5, in no order...

    Candiria- "300 Percent Density" (title track from the album), Kenneth Schalk (in fact, every song with any drumming on this album blows me away equally, both technically and MUSICALLY)
    Mahavishnu Orchestra- "Dream" from The Lost Trident Sessions, Billy Cobham
    The Dillinger Escape Plan- "Destro's Secret"

    Hmmm.....this is way too hard, I love so many different drumming approaches on so many different kinds of songs.

  • How about anything from the general "funk/soul" category..

    To be more specific though, I'd have to say Grover Washington Jr, "Let it Flow (For Dr. J)" from Winelight. Hell, anything from that album knocks me on my ass (and hopefully any girl I might be playing it for muahaha).

  • And if you want what I consider one of the best downright pure rock and roll songs ever created, I would have to go with AC/DC's Ain't Waitin 'Round to be a Millionaire. It's a simple song but man it gathers momentum towards the end and you're just getting into it. Good warmup song.

Otherwise, most of Fleetwood Mac, most of Bryan Adams, some Aerosmith, some Guess Who, some Cheap Trick, some Eurythmics, and anything at all with Kenny Aronoff drumming just because it blows my mind to think I can come close to doing something he's done.
    I've got some classic rock/funk CD's on the way, so there'll be a whole new list in a day or two!

  • I just made a CD of all the songs I like to drum to and hope someday to be able play the whole CD without stopping. Only one I can play through without messing up is the 1st one. took awhile though because the Tab says it's the same beat through the whole song but when you listen to it it does change a little at some spots.

    1) starts with Billie Jean (nice lil warmup)
    2) T. Petty, you dont know how it feels.
    3) Collective soul--shine ( my favorite so far ) almost got it down pat.
    4) AC/DC--back in black ( I have conflicting tabs on this and not sure which one is right)
    5) B. Sabbath--Iron Man
    6) Led Zepp.-- Kashmir
    7) Boston, --Rock and roll band
    8) ZZ top----Tush
    9) Weezer---sweater song
    10) Hollies---Long cool woman
    11) Zepp.---Dyer Makr
    12)B. sabbath, ---Paranoid
    13) KISS---Rock and roll allnight

  • I like to put on any Supergrass album and jam along to the whole thing. "In it for the money" really rocks - specially the opening 2 or 3 tracks. "Life on other planets" gets the big two thumbs up too.

    I'm not a very good drummer (yet) and prefer straight forward rock stuff. And Supergrass keep it pretty simple (something to do with being a three-piece I guess), but so energetic and tight. Would LOVE to see them live.

    Also like the Killers. And the Primal Scream album that no one else seems to like (Give out but don't give up) offers some really good jamming material. Also the whole Bossanova album by the Pixies. And much more, but that's all for now.

    I'd agree with that. Use the drumtrack in the headphones as your metronome, and add your riffs over the top of it. If you are out of time in the slightest, it doesn't sound quite right when you "re-join".

Seven Days, Sting - Vinnie Coliauta (i have noticed this has been quite popular in the post) the reason i like it is the most virtuistic piece of drumming i have ever heard, works on so many different levels, vinnie coliauta is a complete genius. Anyone else would think this track is in four!

    2. Aja (Stelly Dan) : Steve Gadd There is a before and after this track in the history of drumming !!!
    3. Two Step (Dave Matthews Band) : Carter Beauford, especially live in Central Park is just incredible !
    4. Natural Science (Rush) : Neail Peart The different time signatures, the fills he does at the end ! Oh My !
    5. In My Time Of Dying (led Zep) : John Bohnam : The bass drum orgy with a single pedal !!!
    6. Seasons in The Abyss (Slayer) : Dave Lombardo. Those long long tom rolls !!!
    7. Lines in The Sand (Dream Theater) : Mike Portnoy. The way he orchestrates his parts is just perfect. The main groove with hi hat is almost funky and the Keyboard/Drum duel at the end of the song is amazing !!!
    8. Burn (Deep Purple) : Ian Paice just Buuuuuuuuuuuuuuurns on this one !

    I could add tons of other classic drums tracks that I love :

    Blind Korn David Silveria : The crowd goes nuts just with this classic ride intro ! R u Ready ???
    Most of Tool Songs are amazing ! I could not pick a specific one.
    A Gene Hoglan track probably from the Death Symbolic Album
    The first track of Dimmu Borgir Misantropia Something feat Nicholas Barker
    Unas The Slayer of Goods Nile Tony Laureano
    War Pigs Balck Sabbath Bill Ward is so creative on this one

    2. Jupiter's Child... Jerry Edmonton with Steppenwolf
    1. Blues Part II...Bobby Columby with BS&T

    For me, Bobby Columby doesn't get enought credit. I think he woulkd have been more prolific had he worked on many different projects as Gadd did..

  • I often play Tool - Lateralus to warm up... love the song! I also play a lot of songs of a norwegian band called bigbang!! wich you all by the way should check out! Really great band. The drummer is a master groovemachine and looks like animal from muppet show!! check 'em out if you haven't done it already...
    - Vegard, 8 years ago
  • me and my guitarist usually start with hot for teacher or voodoo child. We usually use these songs because we are very comfortable playing them. I think thats the best thing to do, warm up with a song that you know completely, dont get frustrated in the first 10 minutes of playing. Get warmed up first.
    - BrianW, 8 years ago
  • My favorite warm up song (I'm into all music) is "An After Though" by Billy Childs.

  • Duncan Sheik's Barely Breathing is great for just getting in a drumming mood

    and then get into some Peter Gabriel (Manu Katche)

    and then keep progressing ... play along to Aja

    and then go crazy!
    - aahznightsky, 8 years ago
  • For People who arent so sure about themselves on fills and stuff i would say Either
    D'yer Maker or The Ocean by Led Zeppelin.

    But for people like me who think that is not enough of a warm up i would say Red Barchetta by Rush or Limelight.

  • Naming just five is very difficult, but here goes:

    1. Driven to Tears / The Police / Stewart Copeland
    2. Any funky James Brown tune / Jabo Starks, Clyde Stubblefield, Melvin Parker
    3. Move On Up / Curtis Mayfield / Donald Simmons?*
    4. Snail / Smashing Pumpkins / Jimmy Chamberlin
    5. Like Suicide / Soundgarden / Matt Cameron

    *Not sure about the drummer on "Move On Up." The album liner notes aren't much help. They list a bunch of musicians, but they don't reveal their instruments or what songs they played on. If anyone knows for sure who played drums on this tune, let me know. Thanks.

    "Disco Inferno" is always a favorite of mine to play.
    Ah yes, great groove.

    The intro is amazing!!
    - rendezvous_drummer, 8 years ago
  • Oh my, I'm posting in a list thread. I'll add some explanations though.

    i) Lark's Tongues in Aspic Pt. II by King Crimson (Bill Bruford) just a great utilisation of a fairly small drum setup within the context of odd time signatures and some great use of simple polyrhythmic devices within a song. The guitar's not bad either.

    ii) Won't Get Fooled Again by The Who (Keith Moon) plain fun! I play this song with my band and never tire of it, ever. Great energy, good sound, even if the playing is always completely solid it's just fun.

    iii) Take Five by The Dave Brubeck Quartert (Joe Morello) What can I say that hasn't been said? Exquisitely tasteful playing from a true master of the drums and his phrasing is just beautiful.

    iv) Wet Skin by the Dave Weckl Band (Dave Weckly) the drum sound and opening groove are just great. Simple stuff at the beginning relatively but what a sound. An overall greatly tasteful performance, especially bearing in mind who's playing it.

    v) Rime of the Ancient Mariner by Iron Maiden (Nicko McBrain) I just love the song and the grooves contained within are wonderful. Surprisingly tasteful playing and a good, solid and fun performance throughout.

    Haha, maybe in a few years ill be able to do all of their songs. Ive only been playing for 2 years and have a 4 piece kit, so doing Tim Alexanders huge fills are a bit challenging : >)

    I did buckle down and learn Jerry Was A RaceCar Driver. Not their hardest song, but I learnt it when I just got a db pedal, so it was really challenging for me.

  • WOW! First time I have seen this thread. I will start with # 1 song that my friend drummer and I jammed on in the 70"s with two kits side by side (among many other tunes!!) (others in no particular order)

    1- Lookin out my back door---Creedence
    2- Tie your mother down---Queen
    3- Who are you?---Duh
    4- Fire---Jimi Hendrix http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U88KuWxayLg

    Theres a few!

  • Chevelle - The Fad
    Linkin Park - Faint
    Tesla - Modern Day Cowboy ( really, any classic 80s rock with strong ride bell is cool)
    Marilyn Manson - MObscene

    Easy enough to play as a relative newbie but not so much that you get bored.

    Good to TRY to play but I'm not quite there - Crüe, Foo Fighterrs, Metallica
