* [[Music/TheWho Keith Fucking Moon]]. His antics included blowing up his drumkit on stage[[note]]Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey claim their hearing loss began in opposite ears because they were facing each other at the time[[/note]], driving his Lincoln Continental into swimming pools, and getting banned from hotels for trashing them. He's been quoted as claiming he's ''clumsy'' rather than crazy; he never ''meant'' to trash hotel rooms, it just happened... Which would be contradicted by both his reported fondness for blowing up hotel room toilets with cherry bombs, M80s and dynamite. ThatOtherWiki also mentions an anecdote in which he's being driven from a hotel to the airport. He tells the limo driver to go back because he forgot something. What did he forget? To toss his room's TV set into the hotel pool. Clumsy? Riiight.

* Referenced in a throw-away gag in ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' when Faith is describing her ex-boyfriends: "Ronny: deadbeat; Steve: klepto; Kenny: [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking drummer...]]"

** 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.
