The Top Ten

1 White Rabbit - Jefferson Airplane
2 Cocaine - Eric Clapton

This one is not hard to guess at all. Its in the title. - Music_Lover123

3 The Needle and the Damage Done - Neil Young

I concur.

4 Master of Puppets - Metallica

This song doesn't glorify drugs unlike some other songs on this list. It describes very well the nature of drug addiction - drug addicts are the Puppets and drugs are the Masters.
"The Master Of Puppets is pulling your strings, twisting your mind and smashing your dreams."
"Come crawling faster, obey your Master". - Metal_Treasure
