See above.

How do you know when the drum riser is leveled properly?

When drool comes out both sides of the drummer's mouth.

What do you call a drummer with no girlfriend?

Homeless.

I'll take the Black Keys over Nicklecrap any day of the week.

I think a homeless guy farting on a bucket drum is enough to criticize Nickleback

How can you tell if a drummer has broken into your house?

He's still there.

Black Keys is infinitely better than Nickelback, submitard

Nice troll headline though

All musicians can play drums, not all drummers are musicians.

How do you get a drummer off your front porch? Pay him for the pizza.

What do you call some one who knows nothing about music but likes to hang out with the band?

A drummer.

most girlfriends/wives love nb. no shame in that.

my wife loved nb until we went to see them a couple of years ago...chad came out on stage and his hair was significantly shorter...she thought he ruined his looks...she still like the music but has a much different opinion of them now that he's no longer one of her celeb crushes. guess she still has a thing for vin diesel though.

/i look nothing like chad or vin

Rock and Roll: Still dying since 1970.
 
2012-01-05 9:32:53 AM  
(yes, I do live in a cave...)
I went and found out who the Black Keys were for no other reason than their drummer dosent like NB. Not bad, not bad at all.

Drummers make ok music critics sometimes because they spend all their time in the back, lonely, listening to guitar players and singers talk about their "vision."

It's a special kind of hell they live in.

Everytime one of my hipster friends slags off Nickleback it makes me want to listen to them. Not because i want to. Just to piss them off. Listening to Nickleback has actually become the most rebellious rock n' roll thing you can do.
 
2012-01-05 9:35:48 AM  
How do you know it's a drummer knocking on your door?
The knocking keeps getting faster

/Would rather hear the death rattle of my only child than listen to Nickleback.

1974 actually - the year of the first Bad Company release.

After reading this article, I'm gonna trade this life for fortune and fame.

Hey Black Keys, old dead black guys just called, they want their three cords back.

Hey Nickelback, Bon Jovi just called, they said you could keep your level of sucking if you'd just give the mom fans back.

Gavin Harrison is a musician who also happens to be a drummer. Marco Minnemann is pretty awesome too.

I still die a little every time she makes me listen to them in the car. Oh, but I will get even! Yes I will, you just watch. Its time to crank some Chemical Brothers and Ween next time she is in the car, with a little Cake thrown in for good measure. She hates them all, or Ill torture he with a Howard Stern repeat. I think that might work.

I love that Fark brings the drummer-bashing jokes every chance, but it'd be cool to see some new ones.

And some that can't so easily be applied to other instruments too.

/but I can't think of any
//we get a lousy bassist off the porch using the same methodology

What do you say to a guitar player in a three piece suit?
Will the defendant please rise?

Why do bagpipe players walk while they play? To get away from the noise.
Why do banjo players tour so much? To keep assassins guessing.
