Greatest moments in rock and roll, part 7

"When drums attack"

Not just when drums come in, but includes examples where drums build tension (usually by an extended drum roll or hammering out the quarter notes) and release into a normal rock and roll beat. I don't know what the technical terms are---I'm no drummer!

Blonde Redhead - Kazuality (3:09-3:14)
The White Stripes - Hypnotise (0:59-1:15)
Led Zeppelin - Stairway To Heaven (4:17-4:19)
Pixies - Rock Music (0:04-0:21)
Broken Social Scene - KC Accidental (0:10)
The Beatles - The End (0:19-0:34)

We sorta do this on "The Clapping Song."
