first post, ever, it's nuts i know, everyone who's on this forum should friend Greg, Drummer on myspace. He gives cool topics. Such as this one.
Now, anywho.

1. Muse- Stockholm Syndrome
2. Radiohead- Where I End, and you Begin.
3. Franz Ferdinand- Jacqueline (it's always better on holiday)
4. Bloc Party- Like Eating Glass
5. Muse- Micro Cuts

I don't know why, but i love rocking out to alt & punk music, it's a passion.

I got the first 2 down, the rest i'm working on.
bucka, buck!

Well I have a neat little folder on my PC labeled "Practice Songs" with abotu 15 or so songs by various rock artists that I warm up with. I try to get a few different types of drumming in so I keep myself "well rounded", for lack of better words :D

I'd have to say my top 5, in no particular order, are..

- Sheep, by Pink Floyd
- The Real Me, by The Who
- American Girl, by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
- Joker & the Thief, by Wolfmother
- Californication, by the Red Hot Chilli Peppers

Jeeze, we need some diversity here. Its all rush and tool. :p . Not to say there not awesome, but we need some other bands here too.

1. Opeth- Deliverance
2. Opeth- The Leper Affinity
3. Nevermore- Enemies of Reality
4. The Black Dahlia Murder- A Vulgar Picture
5. Lamb of God- Ashes of the Wake

I would have put something by tool, but everyones got tool. You guys should check out Opeth if you haven't heard them though. Corey Lopez is an amazing drummer.

"Any Way You Want It - Journey " I dont understand how a song like that or Korn - Falling Away From Me
Three Days Grace - Animal I've Become...etc. etc. all of these bands where the drumbeats are the most simple and obvious grooves out there, throughout the entire song could be fun to jam to.
