I really enjoy their music don't get me wrong. It's just so much of their music is explicit, which makes the songs hard to appreciate. Of course you can simply ignore the lyrics but it's hard when you know it's explicit. Believe me I've tried. But enough negativity they have great music and not all of their songs have bad meanings.

30 Grateful Dead Grateful Dead

They are an amazing band. Probably my favorite. But they did so many drugs. Drugs contributed to Jerry's death, alcohol caused Pig Pen's death, and attheir shows, everyone did drugs. Their fans are big drug addicts a lot of the time. It's terrible, because, I've never been to a dead show, because I wasn't born when Jerry died, so I want to see Dead and Co., but I'm not allowed to because of the drugs at those shows.
