Those unfamiliar with music may ask, what are percussion instruments? One of the most important instruments in rock 'n' roll: the drum set belongs to the percussion family. Without the foundation of sound that the drums provide for a particular rock song, music as we know it today would cease to exist.  

Despite the importance of the percussionist, more famous instruments often get the glory while drummers, much like offensive linemen in pro football, pave the way for the music to come together in the glorious manner it does. But think about it, legendary rock bands like Led Zeppelin and The Who would not be extraordinary, without their mighty drummers, John Bonham and Keith Moon.

From wooden percussion instruments to types of percussion music made with other materials like metal, you'll find examples of every type (large and small) on this list.
