Drummer Jokes

If you’re a drummer, I think you’ll still be able to use these as a source of entertainment. If you don’t like them, then start thinking of comebacks to them!!

As Dave Grhol said in his famous drumming quote: “I love being a drummer. Everyone thinks you’re dumb. What they don’t realise is that if it weren’t for you, their band would suck!“.

I think most people that use drum jokes are just been having a bit of fun, and having a light-hearted banter with some friends.

If you have people that are constantly using these in a mean way… then maybe you should rethink who you’re hanging around with, or at least come up with some great comebacks!

So that’s our list of drummer jokes. If you have any others to add to the list and add them in the comment section below.
