Seven Random and Great Drug Songs
Posted by Stacey
Just a few I’ve plucked from my tiny mind. There’s of course loads and loads more.
1) Guns N Roses – Mr Brownstone
‘I used to do a little but the little wouldn’t do it so the little got more and more’.
2 ) Nirvana – Lithium
Got to get them in haven’t I?! Everyone knows Kurt’s story and what drugs did to him. : (
3) Red Hot Chili Peppers – Under The Bridge
Reminds me of my ‘yoof’, just like the above. Taken from the album Blood, Sugar, Sex, Magik. Before they got too big and commercialised for my liking. All about Anthony Kiedis’s drug use. His autobiography Scar Tissue is well worth a read too.
4) Alice In Chains – Junkhead
Of course they have many drug related songs. Layne Staley fought addiction for a long time and finally succumbed to an overdose of Heroin and Crack in 2002. Another waste. Such an amazing voice.
5) System Of A Down – She’s Like Heroin
System Of A Down, brilliant and bonkers. I always have to restrain myself from singing the lyrics of this when I’m delivering my Heroin training. Not the best to sing lyrics like ‘selling ass for Heroin‘ and ‘she wants nothing more, but to be a little whore, he wants nothing less than to wear a little dress’ when you are in front of a group of 25 social workers or similar!!
6) Metallica – Whiskey in the Jar
Originally Thin Lizzy. Great riff.
and for the pure comedy value…
7) Goldie Lookin’ Chain – Soapbar
I blame poor quality Soapbar for the increase in the demand for higher THC skunk.
This is very ‘informative’ with lyrics such as…
‘They make it out of oil and tyres and pollen
Diesel, mirror bar, flat press too
These are types of soap bar available to you
These little bits of plastic you find inside
You can use those as a quality guide
Of the standard of soap bar that you are smokin’
The more bits of plastic means the better the tokin’
Well that’s all for now.
