Nightstalker, best stoner in Europe

22ClutchClutch is an American rock band based out of Frederick, Maryland, originating in Germantown, Maryland.

It surprises me that most of the bands mentioned here are not stoner, they belong in other genres. This is about bands that have the stoner rock sound, not bands to take drugs to. Clutch over here, is one of the best examples of the sound.

23Acid KingAcid King is a stoner metal band from San Francisco, California. It was formed in 1993 by frontwoman Lori S., drummer Joey Osbourne and bassist Peter Lucas.

They literally named their band after their fascination for marijuana.

Try listening to their song "Longview", you'll find yourself relating to it

29SublimeSublime was an American ska punk band from Long Beach, California, formed in 1988. The band's line-up, unchanged until their breakup, consisted of Bradley Nowell, Eric Wilson and Bud Gaugh.

Smoke two joints, ska is their main genre. And all in all they're a really good band to toke to

If sublime is not on the top of any list with "stoner" in the title then something is wrong

36Red FangRed Fang is an American heavy metal band from Portland, Oregon, formed in 2005. It is composed of guitarist and vocalist Bryan Giles, bassist and vocalist Aaron Beam, guitarist David Sullivan and drummer John Sherman.

Red Fang's this low? Maybe my definition of stoner rock is off.

37Hawkwind

Stoner rock is music to get stoned to, there is no band on earth can match the Hawks in this, Roll yourself a doofer and settle back in a darkened room with Space Ritual on full volume through a good set of cans. Then you'll know what real stoner music is. Queens of the Stone Age? Sound Garden? PLEASE! Smoking to those is like a ver bad acid trip

Listen to Space Ritual Live to hear the roots of stoner rock. The song Space is Deep is a classic.

38Tenacious DTenacious D is an American comedy rock duo that was formed in Los Angeles, California in 1994. Composed of lead vocalist and guitarist Jack Black and lead guitarist and vocalist Kyle Gass, the band has released three albums – Tenacious D, The Pick of Destiny and Rize of the Fenix.

Come on this is a great band for stoners laugh out loud
