A bunch of cock-asses who think that playing the drums makes them the coolest, and most talented people in the band. They usually come with the following idiosyncrasies:

1) They believe that breaking drum sticks means that you are playing so well, that the sheer intesity of thier playing destroys the stick. This is actually caused by the stick hitting the rim of the drum repeatedly, causing it to break.

2) Most of them cannot actually read music. They prefer to beat out random rythms and call it interpretation, when in fact their beats are rarely accurate.

3) They believe that during solos, the object is not to play something that makes sense, but to play as many notes on as many drums as possible in the allotted time.

4) They believe that playing louder actually means that you play better than everyone else.

5) They believe that the only topic of discussion from anyone at any time should be about drums, drummers, drumming, or any piece of the word drum, and any random suffix.

6) They believe that the more percussion instruments one owns equals the level of skill one has.

7) They believe that the movie "Drumline," was written and created for the sole purpose of stealing and using the cadences in the movie and calling them their own.
A: Oh Man! This cadence is so tight! I'm like the coolest person alive!
B: Douche...

A: That solo was sweet! I used like 40 Floor Toms!
B: Douche...

A: The drumline is the most important part of the band!
B: Douche...

The group of percussionists in any band that thinks that they are better than every other instrument because they can bang more than one drum.

Usually think of routines to make themselves seem cool.

Rarely are good at what they do (although my school may have had their first actual good routine this past week during their compitition).

Usually practice til insane times, but never sound like they've been practicing at all.

The part of the band that thinks the control the beat. That is usually done by the low brass. Generally 1/5 of them are decent musicians, 2/5 are ok musicians with huge egos, and the other 2/5 got lost on the way to footfall judging by their ability to count. Often times will play music so horribly wrong, you think that there must be a physical problem that causes their lack of rhythm.
