What are some easy punk/ska/rock songs for drums. Or a band with a bad drummer so all their songs are easy?
#4
White Stripes obviously.
Also try some Green Day or Rage Against the Machine.
Dont try any Blink 182 though. Their guitar and bass are incredibly easy but their drums can be tricky to play right.
My Gear:
Epiphone SG
Vintage SG
Stagg Strat (With replaced hardware and a Duncan Invader )
Hohner Strat
No name Acoustic
Jim Dunlop Crybaby
Boss MT-2
Boss DS-1
Roland Cube 60
Wires and patch cords and stuff..

another good point but that sentence either doesnt make sense grammatically or just doesnt fit in this situation

Learn "Banned From The Roxy"
EDIT:
Oh, and "Janie Jones" by The Clash sounds pretty simple

same to you rizzo.

Maybe some Minor Threat or Misfits? I dunno about Bad Religion. True, most of the beats are very similar but the drum fills on some stuff might be difficult. And to the guy who said Green Day, I'm not a drummer, but Tre Cools' drumming sounds a bit difficult to me.
#16
When I first picked up drums I used to play along with green day and weezer, both bands use incredibly simple beats.
#17
man bull****, anyone who says black flag or minor threat or even blink 182 is easy drums, **** off.

That **** is hard as ****.

Here easy ass beat, but its still god damn hard:


H-O-O-O---O--------
S---X-----X--------
B-X---X-X----------


Now play that over and over really really fast and there you go, you basically could play in NoFX.
"This shit here's called Death"
"What the fuck? You mean I'm gonna hit this shit and die?"
"No Nigga! I said Deaf. You hit this and you aint gonna hear shit!"

Play Blitzkrieg Bop (i am really inventiv today), when we started playing it in our band (it was our first song and our drummer did not play for years) he nearly fell off the chair after 30 seconds and he needed a break because it´s fast, but it´s really easy either.

Except that...
the early Against Me!
the early The Clash
the rest of the Ramones
and a lot of simple pop-punk stuff like the Descendents

Actually the drums in the descendents are very tricky (in most songs) since there so many rolls and paradiddles (what a funny word). Bill Stevenson is probably my favorite punk(pop) drummer. Plus he was touring with black flag for a little while. I would say screeching weasel would be on the lines to true punk drummer, some rolls, but not the hardest, just mostly fast paced. Oh and this definately punk but Box Car Racer is very fun to play (beware the skills of Travis Barker!).

do any old punk really. (minor threat, black flag, and ramones especially)

Just pick a Bad Religion song
its all the same


Well, any of their old stuff. Anything that has Brooks Wackerman on it (basically The Process of Belief and The Empire Strikes First) is pretty crazy on drums. Definitely not beginner.
