July 15, 2009: Beat It

At Christmas we have a Little Drummer Boy... pa rum pum pum pum.

If that's not enough, we can have 12 Drummers Drumming.

Surely that's enough for anyone, right?

It should be, but Nooooooooooooooo!!!



Quote:
They are the hellraisers of the music world.

But the 582 drummers who drummed together yesterday shunned the example of the likes of The Who's Keith Moon and Led Zeppelin's John Bonham to work together in perfect harmony.

They beat out the same rhythm for five minutes to set a new world record.
582 drummers? I'll bet there was alcohol and drugs involved.

Quote:
The efforts at the National Indoor Arena in Birmingham, sanctioned by Guinness World Records, beat the previous record of 533 set by a group of U.S. drummers in 2006.
This aspersion shall not go unanswered.

Quote:
But while Britain currently holds the title, America looks sure to try and get it back in November.
USA! USA! USA! Anything you can do, we can do stupider.

I'm relieved that this wasn't a Michael Jackson or masturbation thread.
This should be an easy record to break. With drummers being a dime a dozen, it would only cost $4.86. We can afford that.

I hear Obama included it in his "stimulus package".

Easy fix.

This is a cymbal of something, but it beats me what. I wonder how they snared in all those people.

If you have a drumming competition, is it called a "Beat Off"?
