Rock Band/Rock Band 2: Top 10 Drumming Songs

I was going to separate these lists, but as Shakespeare told us, brevity is the soul of wit. So, instead of two Top 5 lists, I've got one top 10 list. (Also, there are more great drumming songs on Rock Band 2 than on Rock Band). All of these are evaluated based on the "Hard" difficulty level. I can't play most songs on Expert, and Medium just doesn't have enough notes to be that fun.

10. Mississippi Queen, by Mountain (Rock Band)
9. Alive, by Pearl Jam (Rock Band 2)
8. Foreplay/Long Time, by Boston (RB)
7. E-Pro, by Beck (RB2)
6. Black Hole Sun, by Soundgarden (RB)
5. Everlong, by Foo Fighters (RB2)
4. Lump, by Presidents of the United States of America (RB2)
3. Go Your Own Way, by Fleetwood Mac (RB2)
2. Spoonman, by Soundgarden (RB2)
1. Detroit Rock City, by Kiss (RB)


Boring, right? I had initially started to write little blurbs about each song, but then I realized they were all pretty much the same: "Sweet fills, started out really challenging but once I got the hang of it, it was really fun." Spoonman and E-Pro have drum solos, those are cool, though Spoonman's is a lot more crazy than E-Pro's. The hardest thing about playing the drums on Hard is hitting the bass at a much higher frequency than Medium.

The hardest thing about Expert is getting digitally punched in the face by a video game.

Top 500 Songs - Dave Matthews Band

This was always going to be the hardest of my band lists, because I like so many of DMB's songs, and have liked them so differently over...
