Andrew W.K. drumming to Napalm Death is the fitness routine that you need in your life


You have to hand it to Andrew W.K., he’s been partying hard ever since his 2001 song implored us to do exactly that.

But how does he have the relentless energy to do so in 2018, a whole 17 years later?

The answer is simple, it’s his ability to air-drum a note perfect rendition of Napalm Death’s ‘Extremity Related’ – as he so effortlessly proved during a recent visit to the NME basement.


Sure, air drumming is “unconventional exercise” by Andrew’s own admission, but it could still be the fitness kick that you need in your life.

“It’s very vigorous, it’s very strenuous and in my opinion it doesn’t just only count as aerobic exercise and a real cardio workout, it also counts as partying”, the man himself explained.

Crucially, you can do it from the comfort of your own front room too, which means that there is no need to fork out for an expensive gym membership that you’ll conveniently forget about in a fortnight.

If Napalm Death isn’t quite to your sensibilities then perhaps Andrew’s own tunes will provide the perfect drumming track – as he’s gearing up to release his first album of original material in over 12 years.

You’re Not Alone’ will feature 16 tracks, with titles including ‘The Power of Partying’, ‘ The Feeling of Being Alive’, ‘Party Mindset’, ‘The Party Never Dies’ and ‘Total Freedom’. It’s out on March 2nd.

The party, it would seem, is still as strong as ever.
