* 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.)

* Kita, the drummer of Music/{{Lordi}}, is portrayed as being a Mi-Go from the CthulhuMythos, which would make him a ''literal'' application of the trope.

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/SpiderGwen'': Gwen Stacy is the drummer of the Mary Janes (when we first meet her) and one of her favorite ways to release the tension she feels from her double life ([[ComesGreatResponsibility and the standard Spider complications]]) is to ''totally unload'' on the drums, to the point that she needs to be shouted at to stop.

Compare CymbalBangingMonkey, DumbAndDrummer. See also NobodyLovesTheBassist for another example of a band-member stereotype.
