    Pfft, not even close.

    Double kick is old, but that link I posted is two of them.

    Double bass was first used by Louie Bellson, although he claimed that he got the idea from someone else - whose name I can never remember, but that other person says they got it from Louie Bellson... He's the one that is acknowledged to be the first to really use 2 Bass Drums.

    although - he's just using a Double Pedal (2 beaters on the master, with a slave pedal on the left) on a single Bass drum.

    I've been told. Dreaming`s free.
    Think I'll go, back to sleep.

    He's punishing two double action bass drum pedals. So he's getting four beats per single count.

    Edit. Nope, he seems to be legit double tapping a pair of single action items. Even more impressive.

    ...they're all just drummers...difficult to find when you want a good one, then you have to put up with them when you find one and they decide to stay...

    Seriously? - The drummer is drooling from both sides of his mouth. - You must be much older than you make out! -

    Well, yes and no.

    Wanja is definitely playing Single strokes - 16th note triplets @ 160 BPM or straight 16th Notes @ 240 BPM (which is quick, although he's capable of going up to almost 300 BPM which is loony fast) - however he plays his single strokes with a form of Heel-Toe.

    Normally you'd play a Heel-Toe pattern as a Double stroke: RRLLRRLLRRLLRRLLRRLL etc.

    Whereas Wanja plays it:

    RH LH RT LT etc.

    Which when played like that is often called 'Constant Release' - or if done with the hands Push/Pull (or 'Buddy Rich's secret Weapon') - which he also uses for Blasts/general playing - the idea being it helps with power, endurance and speed by splitting the work between 2 different muscle groups.

    If you want meaningful lyrics though, ya can't beat some of the thrash metal bands.
    Megadeth also have some brilliant lyrics:

    I'm lonely and abandoned - washed up, left for dead
    I'm lost inside the desert of every word you said
    Like a nuclear reactor, or TNT
    I'm thinking about the times when you lied to me
    All the innuendo, caught up on your hook
    I was just a name in your little black book, oh...
    In your little black book... no

    I'll get even with you
    I'll get even with you, even with you

    I'm bitter and I'm twisted, I haven't slept in days
    I'm lonely and I'm angry, I can't make it go away
    I'm like a bomb that's ticking, I got voices in my head
    I got a doll with needles and wishing you were dead
    I'll get you back somehow, that's what I'm gonna do
    I'll get you back somehow, your nightmare coming true...
    It's coming true

    I'll get even with you
    Ah, that's what I'm gonna do (I'm gonna get even with you)
    I'll get even with you
    Even with you, even with you

    [Short Instrumental Break]

    You better look behind you, 'cause there I'm going to be
    I'll be standing in the shadows with who I used to be
    He's slightly schizophrenic - me, and me, and me, and me agree
    That you are gonna pay for what you did to me

    I'll get even with you
    I'll get even with you
