I've been listening to Pixies, Sonic Youth and Smashing Pumpkins a lot lately and I've been listen to the drumming and now.

I'm at a loss all are great Drummers.

So instead of who's best! Who is your favorite?

David Lovering of the Pixies
Jimmy Chamberlain of the Smashing Pumpkins
Steve Shelley of Sonic Youth

    It's a miracle -_-

    I don't like Alternative much later than '95.

    There is some modern Shoegaze that's pretty awesome though

    Alternative Music slowed down a lot after 1997 or so, the internet has helped people effectively misuse the term too. So that doesn't help.

    Definitely, a lot of people group lighter rock into Alternative now. When it's more than just light rock. Hell listen to the 3 bands I mentioned in the post. A lot of aggressive songs.

    I know all of them. :) People also think contemporary music is alternative music, when really contemporary is the polar opposite.

    Blergh.

    I just love Alternative because it just has that off feeling I can't put my finger on, but I love it.

    Anyways I'm out for the night, try not to kill any trolls while I'm gone

    It was a tough choice between chamberlain and shelley, both are fantastic drummers, but I gave it to shelley in the end because he's a madman. chamberlain sorta just hits things when you don't expect him too. Dave Lovering does get credit for being a hell of a timekeeper, though.

    all are awesome, but i have to give it to shelley. chamberlain's a very close second, though.
