3. We Will Rock You (Queen)

The easiest song on this list, We Will Rock You can be played using just the kick and snare drum, making it perfect for beginners who don’t want to waste any time before rocking out. 

4. Boulevard of Broken Dreams (Green Day)

This classic Green Day song uses one of the most common rock beats. You’ll also have some exciting fills to play around with. 

5. Enter Sandman (Metallica)

Featuring an unorthodox tom pattern and unique cymbal accents, the most popular Metallica song is also the most challenging on this list. However, the skills learned by mastering this song will put you on your way to becoming a great rock drummer. 

As drummers the number one skill you have to master is counting your beat, but sometimes we can’t trust our rhythm which is why relaying on a metronome is important.
