Most Fun/Boring Songs To Play On Drums

Yes, I shamelessly stole this concept from the Bass forum


So what are everyone's most fun or boring songs to play?

Fun:
Ruin - Lamb of God (minus the crazy drum fill)
This Dying Soul - Dream Theater

Pulse of the Maggots - Slipknot

And I don't find drumming boring at all, so I enjoy pretty much every song I play haha.

If you're any good on drums anything by Metallica should be boring. Lars Ulrich, you suck! Sue me!

Also Pantera - Walk would be kinda boring.

Don't tempt him. I can see it now, "That kid played my drum parts! I'm suing him for $100 million"

Not all of Lar's drumming is awful. A lot of the drumming on "...And Justice For All" is pretty sweet. I've been playing drums for almost ten years and there's still stuff I can't play from that album haha.

As for Pantera, there's a lot more technical work "Walk" then you think.

Fun:

Sample based music like Hip-Hop, Trip-Hop, Ambient, Electronica, etc. Its awesome playing complimentary beats to create these insane poly-rhythmic syncopation's. Also practicing on groove and feel (straight vs swung feel exercises).

me:

Boring: IMO top 40 hits and most of anything that is on the radio (except the jazz stations).

Never cared for Metal drumming either (even though i'm a drummer for 2 metal bands)

sultans of swing took me a while to land the rhythm correctly, but its my favourite to just jam to now. limelight is also fun, lots of room to have fun and do your own thing

I cant play either, but they both sound like a workout
