Try some Rush.


Try Blink-182's 'All the Small Things.' It's one of the first songs I learned how to play on drums.

Tom Sawyer's pretty easy... No I'm kidding, pretty much what everybody said in this thread is easy, but I would start with boston, cause they have a straightforward drummer and beats

+1, his drum beats are hilarious.

But I do love me some CCR.
