Well, just to try and get the ball rolling here, how about we post our top 3 songs we like to play on drums. It can be something you're learning now, have mastered, or whatever.

And lets be respectful, everyone has their own skill levels and music taste, so regardless if someone is playing Smoke on the Water, Photograph, or some other song people rip on, keep in mind every band has something to offer.

My current Favs on the drums are

The Pot - Tool
I Will Not Bow - Breaking Benjamin
Hard to See - Five Finger Death Punch
Days go on forever
But I have not left your side
We can chase the dark together
If you go then so will I
Don't often play other bands songs really, but I love playing:

Led Zep - Immigrant Song
Primus - John the Fisherman
The Roots - 75 Bars (Black's Reconstruction)
I, the Swan - The Sound of Animals Fighting
All Bodies - BTBAM
Imaginary Enemy - Circa Survive

dale-banez made a fool of himself..lol

my gear:

oh wait, no one cares

10,000 Sermons, 1 Solution by Success Will Write Apocalypse Across the Sky
Miasma by The Black Dahlia Murder

Starting to focus less on metal though... been playing along to a lot of stuff recently, some examples being Amesoeurs, Yellowcard, SOAD, NAILS, Converge, The Misfits, Repulsion, some hip hop.
Periphery - Icarus Lives!
Lamb of God - Blood of the Scribe
American Football - Never Meant

Never Meant is considerably less technical/demanding than the fist two, but I love that song, it's super chill and the grooves are just A+.

Fool in the Rain - Zeppelin (I can't play it exactly right, but it's damn fun to try lol)
Trains - Porcupine Tree
Consoler of the Lonely - Raconteurs
Bearing in mind I've been playing for less than a year...
A Song for the Dead - Queens of the Stone Age - Has a really fun drum intro to it, and the random breaks throughout the song make it really fun to do.
Buck Rogers - Feeder - Alright, not the most complex song, but you can add that many fills and breaks to it without it sounding bad. Really fun to just experiment new fills in it.
Lithium - Nirvana - Again, not overly complex, but I really enjoy the changes in dynamics during the song, and the amount of passion you can put into it
At the moment I can't stop playing these songs on drums

A Place For My Head - Linkin Park

Bite My Tongue - You Me At Six

Bridge Burning - Foo Fighters

These ain't complex to be honest but that's coz I'm a guitarist and I've not been playing drums for a long time
I can't pick three, so here goes my possibility list:

Rush - Garden Road(how did that one never make an album? D=)
Sepultura - Desperate Cry
Sepultura - Roots Bloody Roots
Black Sabbath - Rat Salad
Black Sabbath - War Pigs
Black Sabbath/Sepultura - Symptom Of The Universe(I love both versions)
Judas Priest - Starbreaker
Judas Priest - Exciter
Led Zeppelin - Ramble On
Led Zeppelin - Rock And Roll
Led Zeppelin - Black Dog
Stormtrooper - Armies Of The Night
Stormtrooper - The Beast Within
Stormtrooper - Search And Destroy
Titan Force - Chase Your Dreams(Harry Conklin's vocals are so corny, but...MAN, THE MUSICIANSHIP.)
April Wine - You Could Have Been A Lady
Vektor - Black Future
Sacrifice - Salvation

I'm bad at picking things...xD

Nah, I prefer to tune lower. My tunings usually go into weird Hebrew symbols.
This may not be your favorite choice but this is my opinion and i shall voice my top 3.

1. A Little Piece of Heaven by Avenged Sevenfold
2. Beast and the Harlot by Avenged Sevenfold
3. Darkness Surrounding by Avenged Sevenfold

The reason these are my favorites is because these all are genius pieces of work that just so happen to have been played by, in my opinion, the best drummer ever.
I like playing Maximum the Hormone songs. Nao has a cool style of drumming that's unique and creative, but focused on the song, not showing off.

I also play a lot of cKy. Jess Margera is a cool drummer too.

However...Andrew WK is objectively the most fun thing you can possibly drum along to. Way too easy, but his songs are so hilariously awesome that it doesn't even matter.

I've been learning the Half Time Shuffle the last week, such a good groove. Apparently Bonzo invented it, surprisingly

I've been playing Dead Flowers by The Rolling Stones with a band I'm in, really simple but enjoyable song to play.
