For Whom The Drum Tolls…Pa Rum Pa Pum Pum

It drums for THEE

Welcome to the 2021 LITTLE DRUMMER BOY CHALLENGE!!



How does it work?

It’s simple. Post in here that you’re signing up and I will add you to the list. Beginning 12:01am Black Friday and ending 11:59PM Christmas night…you cannot hear The Little Drummer Boy.

Comes on the radio - OUT
Plays as part of another song - OUT
Someone says pa rum pa pum on tv - OUT
Carch yourself whistlin, humming, singing it - OUT

Basically if you hear the song or hear some kind of riff on the song…YOU’RE OUT - DONE

Is there any way to survive if it is heard?

There are exactly 2 ways you can survive hearing it

1. If someone knowingly puts it on or tricks you into hearing it knowing you are in the contest and they are specifically being jerks - STILL ALIVE

2. I cannot endorse any competition that limits listening to Missy Elliot. There for the short Pa rum pa pum pum in “Work It” will not eliminate you.


Prizes - if you finish off the time without hearing it you win my respect and admiration

If you are eliminated at anytime you lose any respect i may have for you.

Still Alive:

    I actually "won" last year by virtue of never leaving the house and never putting on the radio, so, an upside to the pandemic I guess?

    I kinda hope to lose this year, so I'll gladly !Signup again

    I am not participating this year but I am volunteering my services as sound checker. Like if there is a questionable cover or piece of media, send it to me and I can objectively say yes to no to it containing the song.

    Assuming Raijin is cool with that. It probably won’t come up though.
