    "Bonzo's Montreux" sounds like quite a veritable punch-a-thon to my ears. Too many other Zeppelin songs ("Nobody's Fault But Mine," "In My Time Of Dying," etc) that count to mention.

    Bill Bruford's bass drum kick as recorded on much of "The Great Deceiver" 4CD live set by King Crimson. It goes way, way down.

    One of my favorite Maiden tunes, too.

    Montrose - Rock Candy is also a good one for killer drums.

    This!

    Also, Power Station's "Some Like it Hot" and a three-way tie of favorite Phil Collins performances: "Mama", "I Don't Care Anymore" and "In The Air Tonight".

    Mike Oldfield "Crises" when you crank up from about the 7:30 mark to the end of the song--it can almost sound like a freight train running through your listening room.

    Van Halen "Hot For Teacher" is pretty good for punchy drums too.

    12" vinyl version of Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean" has a snare that'll snap ya neck.
    12" vinyl version of "Dance On Your Knees" by Hall & Oates has drums that are way over the top (too bad they're not human).
    Madonna's "Live To Tell" has a huge drum sound. The eighties are full of this stuff.

    My favorite Madonna song. I never thought of that one, but you're absolutely right.
