The Top Ten

1 Cocaine - J.J. Cale

This is about cocaine?! Who would've guessed?! - CloudInvasion

This is the original Eric Clapton covered.
"If you want to hang out, you’ve got to take her out, cocaine
She don’t lie, she don’t lie, she don’t lie, cocaine
If you got bad news, you want to kick them blues, cocaine
When your day is done and you got to run, cocaine
She don’t lie, she don’t lie, she don’t lie, cocaine
If your thing is gone and you want to ride on, cocaine
don't forget this fact, you can't get it back, cocaine
She don't lie, she don't lie, she don’t lie, cocaine" - Metal_Treasure

This is how I imagined it, don’t ask...

“i'm ALWAYS ON MY GRACK
Gimme some fxckinx’ slack
It’s really killing my back
I’m always drinking jack,
Now they see on them crack..
C

Only used to make you insane”..
Or something like that, I dunno.

2 Cocaine Blues - Johnny Cash

Early one morning while making' the rounds
I took a shot of cocaine and I shot my baby down
I shot her down then I went to bed
I stuck that lovin' forty-four beneath my head
Woke up next morning and I grabbed that gun
I took a shot of cocaine and away I run
Made a good run but I run too slow
The overtook me down in Juarez Mexico
[...]
Come on you hotheads you listen to me
Stay off that whiskey and let that cocaine be - Metal_Treasure

3 Master of Puppets - Metallica

Huh? Never realized it's about cocaine :O - somekindofaguy

James Hetfield explained this song "deals pretty much with drugs. How things get switched around, instead of you controlling what you're taking and doing, it's drugs controlling you."

He didn't mention cocaine but it could be about cocaine ("Chop your breakfast on a mirror"). - Metal_Treasure

4 Cocaine Blues (Live 1997) - Bob Dylan

Bob Dylan is considered the best lyricist ever (I disagree) so I decided to quote the entire song (there are slightly different versions of the lyrics):
"Every time my baby and me go up town
Police come and they knock me down
Cocaine all around my brain

Hey baby better come here quick
This old cocaine is making me sick
Cocaine all around my brain

Yonder comes my baby, she's dressed in red
She's got a shotgun, says she's gonna kill me dead
Cocaine all around my brain

Hey baby you better come here quick
This old cocaine is making me sick
Cocaine all around my brain

Early one morning, half past four
Cocaine come knockin' on my door
Cocaine all around my brain

Hey baby you better, better come here quick
This old cocaine is making me sick
Cocaine all around my brain

Cocaine's for horses and it's not for men
Doctor said it kill you but he don't say when
Cocaine all around my brain
Hey baby you better ...more - Metal_Treasure

5 Can't You Hear Me Knocking - The Rolling Stones

Yeah, you got satin shoes
Yeah, you got plastic boots
Y'all got cocaine eyes
Yeah, you got speed-freak jive - Metal_Treasure

6 Life In the Fast Lane - The Eagles

"€They threw outrageous parties, they paid heavenly bills
There were lines on the mirror, lines on her face” - Metal_Treasure

7 That Smell - Lynyrd Skynyrd

€"Whiskey bottles, and brand new cars
Oak tree you’re in my way
There’s too much coke and too much smoke
Look what’s going on inside you" - Metal_Treasure

8 My Michelle - Guns N' Roses

€"So you stay out late at night
And you do your coke for free
Drivin’ your friends crazy
With your life’s insanity” - Metal_Treasure

9 Lit Up - Buckcherry

€"I’m on a plane
With cocaine
And yes I’m all lit up again
[...]
I love the cocaine, I love the cocaine
Mama can you wait, mama can you wait.
I love the cocaine, I love the cocaine
Mama can you wait, oh can you wait long?” - Metal_Treasure

10 Snowblind - Black Sabbath

The Contenders

11 Casey Jones - Grateful Dead

€"Driving that train, high on cocaine,
Casey Jones is ready, watch your speed.” - Metal_Treasure

12 White Lines (Don't Do It) - Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five

Amazing bassline and fun song despite the somewhat dark message. Flash and the Furious Five were ahead of their time and gave birth to conscious hip-hop, they deserve a spot on this list.

13 Bales of Cocaine - The Reverend Horton Heat

Bales of cocaine, fallin’ from low-flyin’ plane
I don’t know who done dropped ’em, but I thank ’em just the same
Bales of cocaine, fallin’ like a foreign rain
My life changed completely by the low-flyin’ planes - Metal_Treasure

15 Cocaine - The Game
16 Cocaine - Eric Clapton

What a long, strange trip it's been " - Metal_Treasure

Ah, come on, sister morphine, you better make up my bed" - Metal_Treasure

19 King of Coke - Kollegah
