What songs do you accompany on the drums that are your favorites? I happen to like:

Yes, I'm a big Chili Peppers fan.

The only reason I practise drums is to improve my dexterity, co-ordination and reading-of-music. It is rarely for the pleasure of playing along. When I have I have played along to tunes, they have been “playing in my head” since I don’t have audio available at my practice kit. One tune I did take pride in getting to be able to play to was Take Five as played by Joe Morello, in one form or another. This is one example of how he played it:

I don't!!

Tried it a couple of times years ago and keep getting off the beat. I figured it was because I hadn't had enough practice working on keeping a steady beat at that time.

Now days while listening to some of the songs from those days and some now days I began to realize that: You know what, these people making records are humans to and humans make mistakes; no body's perfect. So how do you play along with inconsistencies.

I do realize some musicians are better than others at holding a steady beat, I also realize when making recordings sometimes they are following a click monitor or something similar. And they may have a way to control the final cut electronically. I don't know. Question

All I know is do your best and if you are playing live follow the bass man; if you have a good one.

I used to drum along to songs a lot, but then I took a break from drumming due to school. Now that I drum again, I spend pretty much all my time drumming practicing rudiments, paradiddles and playing along to a metronome and all that. But sometimes I do tend to reminisce a little and play along to some stuff, this one's probably my favorite: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zKUj8NsYa3M

My current favorite is "Crush With Eyeliner" by REM. It's very easy, maybe too easy but has a very cool groove. Playing along with records decades ago is how I learned to play drums. I never had an instructor and can't read a note of drum music.
