The drum beat you describe is the basic rock and roll "backbeat". Most songs, especially pop songs, use that as the basic pattern. You can of course get much weirder, or even simpler with it, but, what you're describing is the best place to start. It's also the first drum beat you'd learn if taking real drum lessons.

whaddup, yeah thats right if thats what you're going for. Like Huph said, its the basic rock backbeat. I usually start my beats with a basic kick/snare pattern in 4/4 then add/subtract if necessary.
