Nobody Gonna Take My Drums! Edfan
Deep Purple is probably one of the most appropriate bands for Rock Band. I could go on and on, but this is a chart review, not a glorification of Machine Head.

The drums in this song are filled with energy, especially since the song is also very adrenaline fueled.

The track starts off with slow(!) drum roll. But soon, it goes to the main beat that is the regular RY-Y-RY-Y-RY kind, but with kick pedals thrown in with and in between notes, as well as the crash coming in often

This pattern is really fun on its own right, but what really seals the deal are the rolls. They come out of nowhere and force you to hit your drumset at very fast speeds and are fun (to try) to nail.

True, the main beat doesn't change often, but it's engaging, fun, and the rolls keep you on your toes.
