There are jokes for every musician, but no others quite compare to the harshness and hilarity of drummer jokes.

Musicians of other instruments can get ragged on (i.e. Q. How many girl singers does it take to change a light bulb? A. One. She holds it while the world revolves around her.).

But drummer jokes definitely take the cake.

If you are a drummer yourself, you just have to have a bit of a sense of humor and a thick skin. These jokes have been around for years and are still funny. Here are a dozen of the best. Enjoy!
