Any of Van Halen's songs will do, but this one is an all-time favourite: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2wABFxY1uv0

Not so much a song, but I got MTV growing up right about the time KISS was making a comeback with Eric Carr as the drummer. His monster kit with the japanese symbol on the side of each drum with him rocking behind it was so cool to me. That pulled me towards the drums a bit.

There is not one particular song that made me want to play drums. But some did make me push myself to be a better drummer. Like this song by The Good Rats, Klash Ka Bob... Such a great tune.

owning a drum kit (or part thereof in my case) doesn't make you a drummer any more than owning a camera makes you a photographer!
Love it! Although, I'm still firmly in the "owns a drumkit" camp :(

A lot of metal dudes on the forum, eh?

For me, it's anything that Stanton Moore is involved with: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aAJtmDQBvF8

Get funky, friends. Get funky.

Make sure to check out his main band, Galactic (and maybe their entire New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival 2014 set): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vMuXOvUz9NQ

wow - really?

i am talking about the stuff that turned you on to drums... how did you get to hear someone like this?

not sure if your dad took you to jazz clubs or music studios or anything...

i guess i am talking the stuff you thought was real cool on drums as a kid - whenever that was... whenever the interest in drums seed was first planted...  guess i wanted songs rather than names...  anyways... here is one of my most favourite drum beats... simple yes... but really like it still - despite not hearing it for 20 years...

i guess i had a really unmusical/uncultured upbringing - but here goes... and damn right i'm proud to say it out loud!

Oh I see what you mean!

I got into jazz in middle school because the jazz band was the only way to play drum set at school (I was already in the school band playing your xylophones and timpani and marching drums and whatnot). I have always had an ear for it. In fact, [SHAMELESS PLUG ALERT] my little brother got into jazz way more than me and he's is INCREDIBLE (http://www.stevepicjazz.com)

I discovered Galactic (and Stanton) completely by accident! My friends from my freshman year dorm (Go Gators) and I were starting a band and were inspired by the North Mississippi AllStars (a blues rock jam band that our singer/guitarist saw at a festival the summer prior). We saw they were playing locally and went to see them. Well, it turns out they were co-headlining with Galactic, who at that time none of us had ever heard of.

I've been stealing grooves...I mean I have been inspired by that band and Stanton ever since.
