    Default Name that song! - Iconic Drum Beats that Everyone Would Recognize

    Yesterday, I was playing the iconic '50 ways to leave your lover' beat and realized that it's one of probably only a handful of beats like that where someone would recognize the song right away just by the drum beat. So it got me thinking, how many are there? Here are some that came to mind. Can you guys think of any others? Not looking for just famous drum beats but beats where the non-musician would know the song just from recognizing the drum groove.


    50 Ways to Leave Your Lover - Paul Simon (drums, Steve Gadd)
    Brick House (Intro) - Commodores (Walter 'Clyde' Orange)
    Swing Town - Steve Miller Band (drums, Gary Mallaber
    Immigrant Song - Led Zepplin (drums, John Bonham)
    Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana (drums, Dave Grohl)
    Sweetest Taboo - Sade' (drums, David Early)

    Man, these are really good guys! I think We will Rock You and Honky Tonk Woman are the strongest for the masses but they're all recognizable for sure.

    I did see the Stones years ago when Charley Watts started Paint it Black with the drums and not Keith Richards.

    All the other songs I could think of have already been put up.

    Hollywood Nights is 1 of my all-time favorites to listen to and "back in the day" to play. At that time nobody knew that the drum part was overdubbed by another drummer, so a lot of bands didn't touch it.

    For all of the BS thrown around about various songs, Hollywood Nights is 1 of the really great songs of the last 40+ years.
