Make you sway like the ocean
The herb is more than just a powerful potion
What’s the commotion
It’s really hard finding a song from Cypress Hill that isn’t about weed. Seriously, look through their repertoire and you will see that these guys celebrate cannabis day all year round. We’ve decided to go with Want To Get High which was also featured in the movie Half Baked.
Here’s an oldie but a goodie. Roll Another Number is the perfect song to lie down on the lawn to and enjoy a newly lit splif.
Lennon confirmed that the first part of “I Am The Walrus” was written on an acid trip and we can’t possibly imagine how this song in its final form would have existed otherwise. The later parts of the song aren’t very subtle as “Everybody smoke pot” is repeated over and over.
Today is April 20th and you know what that means; it’s 420 a.k.a Cannabis day. In honor of this pothead holiday, we’ve decided to find 10 songs that are either devoted to marijuana or are just awesome to listen to while under the influence. Without further ado, here are UpVenue’s picks for the best stoner songs.
So let’s get to the point, let’s roll another joint
And let’s head on down the road
This song was banned from TV when it was released because of the drug references; well this isn’t television now is it? Enjoy Tom’s joint song.
Think I’ll roll another number for the road,
I feel able to get under any load.
I feel so high, I even touch the sky
Above the falling rain
I feel so good in my neighbourhood, so
Here I come again
When you're ready to roll up a doobie, a joint, a splif, these are the 10 best songs to listen to
Potency: NINE. Marijuana, of course, is an inanimate object. But don’t tell that to Ozzy Osbourne, who professes his love directly to his “sweet leaf” as though it’s his wife or some mythical metal goddess over grinding guitar riffs. Being pro-weed never sounded so romantic.
Potency: FOUR. The first verse finds Rihanna romancing the stoner, but as she gets into “breaking things” and “the police” coming, the less-pleasant and more paranoid thoughts begin to take over.
Three 6 Mafia
13. “Weed With Willie”
Most Smokin’ Lyric: “Loving what you sing/And loving smoking weed/Weed, weed, weed, weed”
Most Smokin’ Lyric: “What’s up Mary! Mary Jane!/Since I have met you, girl, you ruined my brain/You stole my heart, right from the start”
Potency: NINE. This smokin’ track made the Hot 100 in 2003, and with its unstoppable beat it’s a certified banger — plus it features Elliott spitting “pain in your rectum,” which somehow comes across as worse than a pain in the ass.
It's hard to imagine that Bob Dylan, Three 6 Mafia and Toby Keith have much in common, but all three artists understand the power of a classic stoner track.
