If you're wondering where some of the more interestingly named things came from, they're most likely cadences or made up rudiments that came from way, way, way too much drumming.

I must admit that I'm a bit flabbergasted by the above. I mean "Fornication between Consenting Adults"? I've been recording and performing for years now, and I've never heard those. Well, I do know some of those are real, and so are these:

I'll just throw a few more in there.

-Stick Slaps
-Bottom Thumper
-Gacking with the Guy on the Left
-Riding the Cymbals
-Cymbal Spanks
-Hitting the Sweet Spot
-Fuck and Truck (ok, that's a Drill move, but close enough)
