Which band has the better drummer?

IMO metallica's is better...

blink 182's drummer just looks like hes chillin on the drums, and not trying too hard, and beating very randomly/confusing, but making an amazingly great noise... hes a pro IMO... but metallica's drummer is intense-ER! not only is he more intense, hes passing on his intensity, for example:

one time on a performance of metallica's, their drummer fell ill, and they needed som1 else to play the drums for 1 performance, and they let other drummers try, but they loved Slipknot's drummer, and he did most of the songs. Joey says the song Ride The Lightning 'taught' him how to drum... another thing: my friends that can somewhat play the drums played some of metallica's songs including Ride The Lightning - meaning he must be 'passing on the intensity', thats one thing... i also say he's better because he SLAMS on them drums and barrells! lol... anywas, IMO metallica's drummer is better, and not just because he makes my type of music.

Metallica's drummer is much more talented than he shows. Most of their songs cater to guitar, not drums. Blink 182's drummer is good, but Metallica's is better.

I would also vote Metallica's. He was simply amazing on the S&M live album.

However, Tool's drummer is unmatched today in the music industry.

Can't say I like my choices, but I'll go with Metallica since they at least were good in the 80's. Still no Britt Walford or Dave Grohl - but who isn't? :)

metallica has the better drummer in this case. Mike Portnoy is the best drummer in the world though (Dream Theater).

Everybody in Dream Theater is a badass, but if we're talking prog, I think the drummer for Symphony X is better than the Dream Theater drummer.

My fav. drummers of all time would have to be Neil Pert and John Bonham.

Lars was good when Metallica was good, meaning before they made the black album. :thumbsup:

He was probably in his prime on Master of Puppets.

This was a bad comparison. Metallica's drummer Lars Ulrich is far more superior to Blink 182. A better poll would have been to compare other drummers such as Neal Peart from Rush, Alex Van Halen from Van Halen, or Steve Smith from Journey. I'm probably showing my age with those bands, right? :lol:

neil pert is an awesome drummer. so is danny carrey from tool. music has really kind of taken a nosedive here recently. it's sad that there aren't anymore led zepplins (john bonnam sp? was an awesome drummer too) out there. travis barker from blink 182 reminds me a lot of keith moon from the who. i think it's the energy that they both play(ed) with. i'm just ready for more bands who are really musical to come out. this generation needs more bands to change the sounds like rush and pink floyd did with their generations.

I too dont like the choices. Overall Metallicas was better, but Im a strict Seattlite. I would actually go with either Alice in Chains drummer Sean Kinney or Dave Grohl, but this is as far as the seattle early 90's grunge scene go's, but Metallica is still a classic.
