Songs About Drugs
Updated: Apr 2, 2021
On episode 15 of the Songs About Podcast we talked songs about drugs.
This week we're saying YES to what you're traditionally told to say no to. We’re talking songs about drugs - from Mary Jane to marching powder and everything in between.
On the Songs About Podcast we talk about why there are so many songs about drugs: songs about weed, ecstasy and meth, songs about prohibition and partying and the genre-defining tracks that tell a million lyrical stories about the highs and lows of drugs.
Listen to the latest episode of music podcast Songs About to hear how the Stone Roses’ seminal Spike Island gig inspired Pulp’s party classic Sorted For E’s and whizz and learn about Cypress Hill’s work to raise the profile of legal medical cannabis.
As part of our music podcast research we consulted with the professionals at the DEA and found a 2017 Intelligence Brief called Drug Slang Code Words: we absolutely guarantee you’ve never heard them before.
What song did we miss? What’s a great song inspired by drugs we should include in a future episode?

During the latest episode of the Songs About Podcast Kate got a bit keen given her passion for medical cannabis in the UK but managed to hold back a big old rant.
