The Contenders: Page 2

21 ZZ Top ZZ Top ZZ Top is an American rock band that formed in 1969 in Houston, Texas. The band is composed of bassist and lead vocalist Dusty Hill, guitarist and lead vocalist Billy Gibbons, and drummer Frank Beard.

Especially Rhythmeen. ( to a little less degree: X, Mescalero and Antenna )

22 Clutch Clutch Clutch 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.

If I have to explain, your already lost

23 Acid King Acid King Acid 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.
24 Iron Butterfly Iron Butterfly Iron Butterfly is an American rock band best known for the 1968 hit "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida", providing a dramatic sound that led the way towards the development of hard rock and heavy metal music.
25 Green Day Green Day Green Day are an American pop punk and alternative rock band formed in East Bay, California in 1987. The members include Billie Joe Armstrong (vocals and guitar), Mike Dirnt (bass), Tré Cool (drums) and Jason White (guitar) . Green Day are associated with punk rock, pop punk and alternative rock. Some more.

They literally named their band after their fascination for marijuana.

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

Why do you think their name is "Green" Day

The name Green Day says everything, but technicaly their not the most stoner of all, Pink Floyd, led zeppelin and clutch are better in my oppinion

26 Fu Manchu

Stoner/Desert Rock, whatever you wanna call it these guys are IT!

29 Sublime Sublime Sublime 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

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.

40 Tenacious D Tenacious D Tenacious D is an American comedy rock duo that was formed in Los Angeles, California in 1994.
