* Meg White of Music/TheWhiteStripes has had to put up with so much criticism of her drumming style, it's no wonder she retired from music altogether when the band broke up in 2011. Criticisms range from her keeping [[ThreeChordsAndTheTruth a simple, unimaginative beat]] to [[DreadfulMusician not being able to play in time at all]]. Bandmate & ex-husband Jack White ardently defended her style, believing that most of the backlash was due to mere sexism and crediting her with being the most important element of the band's garage punk sound, while world-class drummer Brandon Khoo [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9oQsKRyihEA beautifully demonstrated the true value of her playing]], [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome even using Ringo Starr as an example]]. Meg wasn't always able to ignore her detractors, saying that it really did get to her sometimes but the rest of the time she could blow it off since she realized her own worth to the band and how vital she was to their sound.
** Meg probably wasn't terribly keen on being in a band to begin with. Jack noted in retrospect that part of why the group broke up was because she had no passion for it; for example, the two had polar opposite reactions to some of their accomplishments. Jack would be over the moon about something they just did in the studio and Meg would more or less shrug in indifference & move on to the next objective. Obviously, she was never one for the rockstar lifestyle, but it's hard to tell how much of her disenchantment with the White Stripes was due to the criticism she received or just not really feeling the band lifestyle in general at some point.

Even Dave Grohl had her back, going as far as to liken her to drumming legends like Bonham and Moon. But Meg wasn't always able to ignore her detractors, saying that it really did get to her sometimes but the rest of the time whereas she could usually just blow it off since she realized her own worth to the band and how vital she was to their sound.

Added DiffLines:

* Music/{{Pink}} sings in "So What" that after the waiter gives her table to Jessica Simpson, "I guess I'll go sit with drum boy" - drummers get the kids' table? On the other hand, she compliments that "At least he'll know how to hit" ([[https://youtu.be/FJfFZqTlWrQ?t=1m10s the music video even has the drummer with a]] FunTShirt reading [[DoubleEntendre "I Like to Bang"]]).

* Averted by {{Rush}}'s drummer Neil Peart, who is incredibly technical in his playing, writes the band's lyrics, has authored several books, and is outright stated by both of his bandmates to "have a bigger brain than [they] do."

* Averted by {{Rush}}'s drummer Neil Peart, who is incredibly technical in his playing, writes the band's lyrics, has authored several books, and is outright stated by both of his bandmates to "have a bigger brain than [they] do."" He has even augmented his kit with instruments such as tubular bells, gongs, bell trees, and crotales. Did we mention he's incredibly technical in his playing?

* When Music/PhilCollins joined the early incarnation of {{Music/Genesis}}, although certainly intelligent[[note]]For his audition with the band, he learned the drum parts by listening to other drummers audition; he had never heard them before. And this was while swimming in Peter Gabriel's pool.[[/note]], he found himself falling into this role, playing comic relief to diffuse tensions between the often sarcastic and pissy boarding school graduates that made up the rest of the band.

* Glenn Fricker, owner of Spectre Media Group and longtime heavy metal record producer, hands drummer jokes out like they're candy - both in the studio and on his YouTube channel. As with his [[NobodyLovesTheBassist hatred of bass players]], he often plays this straight but will [[DiscussedTrope sometimes take the time to explain why he feels this way about drummers]], noting that as with bass players there ''are'' good drummers out there to whom this trope doesn't apply and with whom he has enjoyed working. Unlike with bass players, who usually can't play at all, drummers often ''can'' play. The problems with drummers tend to be that they can't keep a good beat, they're unable to keep their affairs outside the studio straight (e.g. Phil Rudd of {{Music/ACDC}}), and they tend to whine & complain when the producer insists on arranging drums, cymbals, & microphones in such a way as to get the optimal sound, seeing it as too much work and too different from how they normally play to the point that they can't play their kit this way at all.

* While DaveGrohl averts this, he stated that when {{Music/Nirvana}} was in Australia getting a visa to travel to New Zealand, the consultate wrote "musician" on both KurtCobain and Krist Novoselic's documents, but "drummer" on his.
