"This is my favorite rocker on the record. The song stemmed from an AC/DC–type drum beat and morphed into an in-your-face wakeup call." -Tony Palermo (drums: Papa Roach)
This is a quote from the drummer of the alternative band Papa Roach. It is from an article about Tony Palermo talking about the drum beats in all the songs on their new album. Its form the magazine "Modern Drummer" (http://www.moderndrummer.com/updatefull/200001759/). This is talking about a song on the album and how the drumbeat is an influence of acdc. Acdc has been famous for their simple but trademark drumbeats, almost all of their songs are a 4x4 then into the chorus comes in with a drumfill at the end of each measure. Ac-Dc has trademarked their drumbeats, Phill Rudd the drummer, has made it simple but unique. This is an example of AcDc's influence in rock in the modern day.
