If you've never had the pleasure of catching Japan's gift to the riff, Boris, perform live, you haven't really lived. A major part of the fun is watching the band's drummer, Atsuo. Between the comically large drums he uses, his majestic, flowing locks, and blatant abuses of the gong, Atsuo is among the most entertaining drummers in rock music. Visuals aside, the man hits his drums with a force and style that absolutely commands a spot on this list.
8. Lars Ulrich
7. (seriously) Chuck Biscuits
If you ask us, Chuck Biscuits is one of the most underrated drummers of the past 30 years. The dude has played in D.O.A., Black Flag, Circle Jerks, Social Distortion, and most notably, Biscuits anchored the golden-era of Danzig. The dude has taste, chops, and a distinctly British feel that would fit Sabbath like a black leather glove.
