Knowing how you guys (and the handful of gals you haven't scared away) love a list, I made time in my busy schedule to present you with a great list -- The 100 Greatest Rock Drum Performances of All Time.

When I say present, I mean typed in reverse order -- forcing you to scan through the meat of the list before arriving at the surprise Number One. Full credit for compiling the list five years ago goes to "Ryan," who also created a Spotify list of these songs that I'll listen to as soon as I can figure out this new-fangled Spotify technology. Update, I found the list of 300 songs by searching Spotify for Digital Dream Door, then searching through it's many lists for the drum one.

Without getting too far into the weeds, it's a great list because it encompasses a wider breadth of drummers than we typically see -- ranging from a wide range of styles from the 60s to the 2000s -- ranging from The Surfaris to Mastodon.

Because there's always some some fun-crusher saying "What's the criteria for this list," it is as "Ryan" explains "
These songs demonstrate their drummer's talent and ability in creating an outstanding drumming performance."

Do I have some quibbles? Sure, I wish the list limited drummers to one or two appearances.... To me, Carmine Appice doesn't merit multiple appearances (but that may be because I think he's a terrible person who didn't teach Bonham anything, really) and I appreciate Mike Portnoy largely in the same way I would enjoy watching someone type at double the speed I do.

With that said, it's a great list, and I've enjoy catching up on some of the performances I missed ... As an example, I never took time to listen to much Bozzio (who sounds exactly like I expected and can probably type 100 words a minute).

So, here's the list from DigitalDreamDoor.com:

100. Thorazine Shuffle – Matt Abts (Government Mule)

Well he almost got it right. La Villa is a much better song, and people have actually heard of it. :)

Keith Moon/The Who "Bargain" ... The greatest drum performance by Keith Moon, hands down. Substitute it for "Won't Get Fooled Again". "Bargain" is pure genius and no one has ever been able to match that studio performance...not even close.

Millions of people are familiar with Tool, a multi-platinum band whose latest album knocked Taylor Swift out of the Number One top album slot. Their latest tour filled arenas across the country. Only on this forum can a band nearing its 30th year as one of the top-selling bands in rock seem obscure.

Agree 100%. It's almost beyond me why so many people characterizes him to be the stereotyped random basher without dynamics. I can see the point but there's nothing wrong with their relatively softer stuff, either.

Funny how you never hear them on the radio.

What’s the radio?
What is spotify? Is it that rich Swedish guy that rakes it in with everybody's music but has a hard time giving pennies back to the artist? I wonder in these hard times how his behaviour is going to change if it does.

I think that Ginger Baker's solo on "Do What You Like" from the Blind Faith album is [musically; compositionally] better than the solos he recorded on the two versions of "Toad" (Fresh Cream or Wheels of Fire). I always felt that the "Toad" solo on Fresh Cream sounded like a box rolling down a hill — at least the one on Wheels has musical contrast and dynamics, although it's so long it wears out its welcome and comes to too many false climaxes.
