look up any word, like bae:
A musician who plays a drum, which is an instrument usually comprised of a membrane stretched across the top of a (at least somewhat) cylindrical shell. The backbone of any 20th century modern music group. Often quite dense. Always gets the girl.
-How can you tell if the stage is level?
-The drummer's drool stays in one place.

someone who hangs out with musicians.

All the definitions I have seen so far are written by drummers, or people who thinks the stereotype is false, but...

dude, drummers don't have real notes. Any dumbshit can tell difference between a quarter note and a whole note. A guitarist on everything known to man, that sees the iguanas in their eyeballs, can keep in time.

Drummers are necessary in bands, but so are microphones, and neither are musicians.
Drummer: Dude, you're such an junkie. You can't even read your notes, keep in time or do anything, shit head.

Guitarist: I can read my notes, but more than that, I have notes. You have the timing for your instrument, and nothing else. You don't play a tuned instrument, and no one even fucking knows your name. There's a reason that no one knows your name, and it's not because everyone's conspiring against you to keep drummers down.


Guitarist: Here, take one of these. It'll help.

*Guitarist hands drummer a pill.*

Drummer: What is it?

Guitarist: Does it matter?

The worst and most insulting insult ever. Drummer is used as a word to describe the most stupid, most retarted, most unimportant humans and/or living things that ever existed.
Person A: Oh my gosh did you just run into a parked car?
Person B: Yes I thought it would feel good.
Person A: You're a drummer!
Person B: I'm sorry (sigh), i was too stupid to play bass...

From the latin word "drummius" which in its simplest terms means "unemployed."
"Hey Mark, can I borrow 5 bucks?"
Mark: "No dude, you know I'm a drummer."
