    Interesting list.

    I always love these "Top such and such" lists. I may agree with some, may not with others, but they are always fun to read.

    Normally, I'd laugh at people who make fun of lists like this, since it's all subjective. But, damn, does this list suck. The author clearly has his blinders on for rock, rock, and more rock. On a quick skim through, I saw no jazz, WAHT? No Buddy Rich, HUH?

    Then dumbfounded I looked up the website, and the list is labelled as Greatest Rock Drum Performances, with OP leaving out the "Rock". Oh, makes more sense now.

    Also, Completing _____ threads are pointless.

    If somebody likes a soundtrack from, oh say the Tony Hawk or GTA series, or a certain list what's wrong with that? A lot of people like these and its cool having a reminder of "hey I forgot we had that!!!" It's just another hobby that hurts absolutely nobody.

    Can one of the mods please change the thread title from "Greatest Drum Performances" to "Greatest Rock Drum Performances"?

    Unless I just didn't see them there are a couple you missed:

    The End--John Densmore(The Doors)
    In the Air Tonight--Phil Collins
    Fat Bottomed Girls-Roger Taylor(Queen)
    Paradise City--Steven Adler(Guns n Roses)

    and I know this could be a stretch for this list but what about the numerous drum duets done by Phil Collins and Chester Thompson that have been preformed during Genesis concerts?

    We've never gotten Genesis, unless I'm horribly mistaken

    Boring list (there are tons of creative punk and alternative drummers, you know...), but it's pretty amazing that we have quite a few of these songs in Rock Band. :)

    I noticed there's no indicator if a song is in Rock Band 3. Is that because none of them are or is that because the list wasn't compared. If the list wasn't compared, I can check it and report back.
