This week's batch of drum fills comes from a mix of classic rock and pop, and more recent cuts. As always, I was drawn to them simply because I love the songs themselves and was captivated at some point by the percussion. Pro tip: If you don't recognize a fill, try matching the timbre of it — the power behind it, the sound of the recording, etc. — to one of the album covers pictured (or to the period the album was recorded in).

We loved the feedback from last week's Drum Fill Friday. If you have a drummer or fill you'd like to see featured in the puzzler, let us know in the comments section or via Twitter @allsongs.
