The rhythm for the kick drum in every dance/pop song. It literally has a name, "Four on the floor".

I think that four on the floor is just a drumming term.

Or maybe not, i dont know. But i have never heard it used in a non-drumming situation.

Sounds like trying to enjoy a movie but keeps analyzing the film techniques.

Or playing a game and noticing design flaws and inconsistencies.

I do this to the point where I actually don't get involved at all in emotional films.

I went to watch Warhorse in a movie theatre and laughed loudly at the really bad acting, design and effects whenever a character died.
There was even this one bit where a mortar went off and this oh-so-obvious rag doll just flew up into the air, limbs a flailin'; I laughed harder at that than anything else in the past six months.

The woman two seats across from me gave the dirtiest look every time, tears streaming down her face as she did so.
I was kinda scared she was gonna stab me when we left.

Completely get this. The more alcohol you consume, the more you analyse it...

1st note F--->Fa   
2nd note A--->La   
3rd note  G-->Sol   
If you can't read this,it doesn't automatically mean you are musically challenged.   
I bet a lot of people did not get this is because in Eastern Musical Theory(Europe etc)   
notes don't go like C D E F G A B C but Do Re Mi Fa Sol La Si Do.Please show some respect...

I'm European and in instrumentation we use C D E F G etc... and for vocal exercises we use Do Re Mi etc...
I think that's pretty much how it works around the globe.

I wasn't aware of its use in certain countries as a standard. Excuse me while I spend half an hour on wikipedia.

why just american? standard notation is universal... hence 'standard' notation.

Clearly not all of Europe, having lived in the UK my whole life and learned how to read music; I can say I read the notes.

No we don't. We use a weird combination of both, measuring large distances in miles, but short distances in meters/centimeters. And weight in kilograms, and volumes in litres. It's only really the older generation that uses imperial, we were taught to use metric. Don't tell me about my own culture, since you clearly don't understand it.

I'm from Denmark, and i can positively say that the whole of scandinavia read notes as letters: A, A#/B, H, C, C#/Db, D, D#/Eb, E, F, F#/Gb, G and G#/Ab


The whole mixup of the B/H notes was supposedly some drunk guy ******* **** up

Are you dumb? The imperial system has nothing to do with reading standard notation. Besides, most countries in at least northern Europe would read it as F-A-G. I'm Norwegian, so I at least know that for a fact.

How many drummers does it take to screw in a lightbulb? 5. One to screw it in, 4 others to talk about how much better Neil Peart would've done it.
What did the drummer get on his I.Q. test? Drool.
What do you call that guy that hangs out with musicians? A drummer.
How is a sneeze like a drum solo? You can tell it's coming but there's nothing you can do to stop it.
I'm a drummer but i still find these hilarious, and I'm pretty guilty for the Neil Peart one.

I wanted to play a "real" instrument, but I'm mildly tone-deaf. So, I play percussion.

Not a real instrument, that's like singing, it doesn't really make you a musician.

Percussion encompasses a wide variety of instruments. It's a family (like brass, strings, etc.) Drums still require lots of rhythmic theory knowledge (polyrhythms, meter patterns, etc.) and within percussion, vibraphones, xylophones, and other vibe-like instruments require full knowledge of music theory.

Hell, I'm pretty sure pianos are technically a percussion instrument.
And I don't know crap about key signatures and whatnot, but the rest of the kids in our band always ask me the rest of their questions.

When you hear that the audio quality is SO BAD that you can safely assume whoever provided the music ripped the song from a 240p youtube video.
