One of my favorite songs, Ramshackle by Beck. In the intro there's a bass drum hit that is just so far behind the beat it almost ruins the song:

Ive always wondered about Charlies opening notes on Jumping Jack Flash on Get Yer Ya-Yas out - to me it sounds as if he comes in just a little late - as if he was caught off guard - an oh sh@t its me moment😂

Whoa! I actually just started playing with a band that has that song in their repetoire, and I was wondering the same thing about the drum intro.

I couldn't figure out if it was a mistake, a strange splice, or some bizarre count-off. It's a fairly simple song, but that intro was really throwing me, and I was getting nervous about screwing it up in a live setting.

Now, singing it to myself and keeping in mind that the guitar starts on the 'and', it makes perfect sense! Thanks so much! (Now THIS is why I should have learned to read notation...)

Not the greatest mistake of all time but there's clearly a 8th note snare drum flub at 1.26 on this 1976 disco classic More, More, More, by Andrea True Connection.

I was a kid at the time and was just taking an interest in drums, and that fluffed note alway stuck in my ear.

(Never knew at the time either, of course, that Andrea was a porn star!)

You're most welcome, I played this song in a band a while ago and had to scratch my head a few times before I got it. Fortunately this scratching was made before the first rehearsal, there is nothing like coming in prepared :)

Not sure if it's a mistake, seems like it could be...I wouldn't call it the worst...maybe the best! But the roll before the first chorus in The Beatle's Rain is very odd, comes down on the wrong beat, an extra 2 beats I think.

I used to play in a Stones tribute, and I tried playing the 'Start Me Up' intro both as it is on record, and then other gigs I'd play it as you'd expect any other drummer to play it. Definitely prefer the 'messed up' intro!

I've never ever seen anyone mention a little mistake in this song - Fairytale of New York. Arguably the most famous of all the Christmas songs, but listen closely and it sounds like the drummer stumbles a bit at 4:11, misses the crash and tries to cover it up.
