From my days of DJing electronic music, I remember two tracks:

1. To The Beat Of The Drum

2. Women Beat Their Men (this line was followed by "The Men Beat On Their Drums")

The only thing I can think of is Justin Bieber's "Drummerboy", but I'm pretty sure no-one wants to play that.

"Lather" by The Jefferson Airplane.

"R.O.C.K in the USA" by John Cougar Mellencamp mentions drumming.

"Dear John" by Styx about their late drummer.

"Ghost Rider" by Rush isn't about drumming per se, but is Neil Peart writing about himself.

Have not heard this song in years but it popped right into my mind when i read this thread.

"Well my buddy Jim Bass he's a-workin' pumpin gas
And he makes two fifty for an hour
He's got rythm in his hands as he's tappin' on the cans
Sings rock and roll in the shower
Drivin' over Kanan, singin' to my soul
There's people out there turnin' music into gold"
