look up any word, like rule of three:

A group of talented musicians, boys AND girls, who play percussion instruments on the field. Despite what the rest of the marching band might think, the drumline CAN read music and normally will throw down beats on demand. The drumline is the backbone and the heartbeat of a marching band and without it all the other cocky musicians wouldn't be able to keep time. The rest of the band is intimidated by the drumline because the drumline knows how to play ten times the amount of instruments they do, and spends more time practicing than they could even imagine.
Wow did you hear how well the drumline did?

Yeah! Why do the rest of us even bother?

The section of the band that is always misunderstood. They DO know how to read music (yeah drummers in the band also play mallet instruments in concerts, what a concept) and have the most challenging music, but band is NOT their life. They have to master playing 50+ different insturments, which is why most people find it so fun. Band directors usually blame the drumline for their problems.

Not a movie,let me reiterate, the movie drumline does not give a correct or accurate representation of drumline.
Drumlines are the backbone of a marching band and work the hardest making every not perfect. They do not dance around like gay homo's in the movie. People in drum corps drumline's are the best.
"Our drumline kicks ass"

Best thing that ever happened to the band. Consists of skilled musicians who dispite rumors can actually read music. Mesmorize crowds with our awesome beats (haha beats) and kick ass rythms.
"Yo man you heard the seabreeze drumline yet?" "Yeah dawg they off the chain"

The coolest guys in your school...period.
The drumline is cooler than the starting qurterback, the stoner, and Russel Crowe combined.

1. Section of a marching band that marches while playing percussion and plays the cadence while marching onto the field for a competition
2. An awful movie with a whore core for a colorguard
1. The drumline is playing the cadence. They sound cool.
2. I just watched Drumline. Nick Cannon makes me want to cut myself.
