** Averted in ''WesternAnimation/BeCoolScoobyDoo''. When the gang has to pretend to be a band in "Screama Donna", it's ControlFreak Fred who winds up on drums.

* The Bread from ''WebVideo/DontHugMeImScared 5'' certainly goes crazy banging on Peanut Butter and Jelly Jars. He's also barely able to speak, as he just mumbles the names of various foods while his band desperately tries to make a coherent song.

* Whenever ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' requires a character to play drums, it's always the aptly-named Wakko. (FridgeBrilliance in that his voice is a RingoStarr impersonation.)

* 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 Music/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''.

* Buddy Rich embodied this trope on-and off stage. A beast on the drums, and a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tCF9wgMU7es monster to his band]] (audio is {{NSFW}}). [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n_BmeBfV-O4 Buddy Rich vs. Animal in an old-school drum battle]].

* [[EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys Talking gorilla]] Sticks from ''ComicBook/AstroCity'' is a drummer who'd much rather make music than break things, having turned his back on his people's militaristic lifestyle.



* 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]].

* 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.
