Bonham, of course.
Grohl too.

I love Ringo, but usually he hit em too lightly,
But NOT always, Ringo hit em hard sometimes.
Ringo's son Zak, hits em hard.
Keith Moon, of course.
Paul's drummer Abe...he hits em hard.
Tom Petty's drummer,
I'm blanking on his name,
love that drummer, perfect with TP,
he likes to hit em hard.
Kenny Aranoff, damn!

Not so much about volume,
just the way they play, fun to watch drummers!

Good songs, bad songs,
ya know I've had my share.

I'm not a drummer,
I'm a wannabe guitar hack.

I gotta give it up for great hard hitting drummers.

Matt Cameron - Soundgarden/PJ. He hits his drums supremely well.

Stewart Copeland.

But drummers have to be able to control their dynamics as well.

One of the marks of a really good drummer is to be able to groove quietly.

Feel and groove over power, but the best rock drummers have all 3.

Danny Carey is another that is quite a punisher of drums.

Peart has always and still hits 'em hard. Listen to "All The World's a Stage" for a good example.

This will probably sound crazy, but the guy from 3 Doors Down was one the hardest hitting drummers I ever seen. I felt bad for his kit! He was beating the **** out of it all night.

I used to beat the **** out of it, all night.
I agree, drums need to be punished.
Like little kids...
Put em in their place... and
they become perfect.
A great drummer is like a great guitar player

Great drummers are hard to find.
Rock and roll.

Chad Smith hits incredibly hard.

However, the answer to this question is John Bonham, and it's not even close after that. The power that man had - otherworldly.
