I'm looking for songs with drums that dominate the overall feel of the song. Only 2 that come to mind at the moment are Citizen/Soldier by 3 Doors Down and Youth of the Nation by POD

Dream Theater - Honor Thy Father
this song's a bit more metally/progressive. Its from one of my fave bands. Listen to the start.

Ticks and Leeches - Tool

EDIT: Theres not alot of songs were drums are the main part of the song.

Try

Fire - Jimi Hendrix Experience

The drums stand out a lot in it.

Tool in general tend to make drums the focal point.

Also try Stinkfist, Sober, The Grudge, and Jambi.

You're not really getting what I'm after. Listen to those two songs I listed in my first post, THAT is the kinda feel I'm looking for. Not overly complicated drums a'la Tomas Haake or Mike Portnoy.

assassin - muse
I'm quite fond of the drum work in a crow left of the murder - incubus as well. It's nothing special, but I enjoy them.
