Best Songs About Drugs

The Top Ten Best Songs About Drugs

1 Heroin - The Velvet Underground

No Surprises this one is up here the death of me... - djpenquin999

2 Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds - The Beatles

Is it really about drugs? It does seem like it, but John said it wasn’t and was actually about a drawing his son made. - Misfire

It's not about drugs.. it was about a drawing by John's son.. when he asked about its name he said lucy in the sky with diamonds so he got an idea which was writing a song about it

This is about a painting of a girl named Lucy that one of their sons made. - djpenquin999

Whoever said its not about drugs is on acid. Look at what the title abbreviates to

3 Purple Haze - Jimi Hendrix
4 White Rabbit - Jefferson Airplane
5 Mr. Brownstone - Guns N' Roses

I didn't know that it was about heroin when I first heard it lol. - RiverVibeZ

6 Master of Puppets - Metallica

Drug = master
Drug user = puppet
Very creative and cool song in my opinion. - RiverVibeZ

This song's gloomy atmosphere and lyrics perfectly depict being trapped in a drug addiction. "Your life burns faster / obey your master! "

It's the anthem of all metal! Obey your master refers to, in my opinion, the fact that the drugs are controlling you and you have no control over stopping it.

My favorite drug song. t's not glamorous. It's just raw and true. - JoLeKosovo

7 Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd

Best Song Ever - Glauberson

Roger waters said it wasn’t about drugs

yes, it is in a way, it's about escaping the real world. So basically drugs - danimey

8 Snowblind - Black Sabbath

"This is a song about a substance we used to play with" - SoldierOfFortune

A song about cocaine. - Gasmaskboi19371945

9 Got to Get You Into My Life - The Beatles

Paul McCartney said that this is his ode to pot, and this is my favorite song by the Beatles. I think it's amazing. It can be easily taken for meaning love; however, lyrics like "I took a ride," and "Another kind of mind," should be some red flags for those who aren't open minded enough about it.
