* In ''TabletopGame/RocketAge'''s Venusians, three to four metre tall gorilla-men, already use [[JungleDrums drums in warfare]], so it only makes sense that the drummer of the [[CoolestClubEver Rocket Cat's]] resident Jazz band is one.

* In the Norweigan film ''WesternAnimation/PinchcliffeGrandPrix'', the gorilla Emanuel Desperados is a literal example as he guest stars in a band at the unveiling of the [[CoolCar Il Tempo Gigante]], naturally as a drummer.

* Tommy Lee from Music/MotleyCrue, probably best known for his wild sexual activities with groupies and even Pamela Anderson. He is also a crazy party animal, possibly the rowdiest of the entire band. That is saying something, considering Nikki Sixx once partied so hard he died... and then got better. And THEN wrote a song about it.

* [[Music/{{Nirvana}} Dave]] [[Music/FooFighters Grohl]] is an odd case. His drumming style actually ''looks'' a lot like [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tOYvS_fvdkA Animal from The Muppets]] (and Grohl in fact played the stand-in for Animal in the [[Film/TheMuppets 2011 film]] as something of a LampshadeHanging) and the music styles that he's most famous for are hard rock, punk, metal and grunge, but he is also a subversion of the trope, being so famous for his off-stage affability that the title "Nicest Man in Rock Music" follows him around. And then ''again'' his oddball sense of humour has him often majorly playing up to this trope especially in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fhdCslFcKFU&feature=player_embedded Fresh Pots]].
* Another good example is the drummer of Grohl's band, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OgKXlEsYoXE Taylor]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PtxpSsM63mQ Hawkins]].
* Dennis Wilson of Music/TheBeachBoys, to a T. At the ''T.A.M.I Show'', while performing "I Get Around", he actually [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome shattered a drumstick mid-song]].

to:

* Music/GreenDay's Tré Cool is often compared to Keith Moon, given he's manic in both [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gzErVt8xgRg drumming]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=POpWk_CB5js stage antics]].

* Zach Hill, drummer of Hella, El Grupo Nuevo de Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, and Music/DeathGrips, plays so hard he wears out drums faster than usual. He also injures himself a lot playing, even once having to take a hiatus because of a drumming related wound.

* A BerserkButton for drummers is that any songs they compose rarely get onto the albums, and they only ever get to do the vocals on "joke" or novelty songs. [[note]]Ringo Starr, who got things like ''Octopus's Garden'' to perform[[/note]]. There is apparently no anger like a drummer whose musical contribution is scorned once too often. Drummer Albert Bouchard is said (again, allegedly) to have left the BlueOysterCult following a really ''heated'' band discussion, as to why hardly any of his songs made it onto the band's albums. Bouchard named his own band ''The Brain Surgeons''.

* [[Music/{{Arkaik}} Alex Bent]] is known for his manic live performances and equally manic and unpredictable playing style (he's basically a gospel and fusion drummer playing death metal), as shown here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RFSQf0ynsZg&feature=relmfu.

* VideoGame/DonkeyKong plays Bongo.

* VideoGame/DonkeyKong plays Bongo.Donkey Kong is associated with playing bongos in many ''Franchise/DonkeyKong'' games. They double as looking like barrels, which are an important feature in his titles. Donkey Kong is usually the most primal of the Kong's when he appears outside of his series.

** Subverted with Dusk from The Hex Girls. She's not particularly any more wild than the others. If anything, Thorn (the bassist and lead singer) is the theatric and "scary" one, and even that is not much due to their {{Perky Goth}} personalities.

to:

* Averted with Rina Suzuki of the all-girl Japanese band Music/{{Scandal}} -- here's the most feminine and girliest drummer you'll probably ever see. (She has, however, named Keith Moon as one of her favourite drummers.)
