They’re literally the heartbeat of their bands, providing the rhythm that powers the music of bands from all genres. From the legendary stomp of late Led Zeppelin bash-master John Bonham to the intricate complexities displayed by Rush’s Neil Peart to the hip-hop-influenced punk beats of Travis Barker, the list of legendarily talented rock drummers is as varied as it is vast.
In a musical world where DJs, drum machines and computer-generated beats continue to encroach on the realm of actual drummers, these trap-masters and their bands keep it real with flesh and blood rhythms.
Narrowing the field down to 40 (or so) of the best beat-keepers to ever rock a kit, it’s your votes that will determines who reigns supreme as the single greatest rock drummer of all-time.
Support your favorite drummer in the poll below!
