Top 30 Songs About Getting High


In celebration of 4/20, we compiled a list of the best songs about getting intimate with Mary Jane, perfect for you to get high to listen to in preparation for the stoner holiday.

Some songs are pretty obvious, others softer secrets, and some were snubbed intentionally, but whether smoked out of a joint, a pipe or a bong, no amount of THC could make a person mistake what these songs are talking about.

    It seems awfully ironic that there’s a photo of B. Real/Cypress Hill at the top of the list yet they are nowhere to be found on said list! Afroman’s “Because I Got High” and Cypress Hill’s “Hits From The Bong” are the two glaring omissions that simply HAVE to be on this list… Then again, I could be wrong, as usual lol

    There was a song on the radio sister station of dc101: I think it’s 97.9 baltimore, in 2002 , 2003, 2004, somewhere in there, where the peeps the song is about getting stoned at a playground. These were adults the genre was somewhere between hip hop, trip hop, and club mix of well something halfway between soft rock and r&b, and I believe the singer to be a black dude though I can’t swear to it. Anyone know the song?
