What's your favorite song about cocaine?
« on: April 27, 2008, 08:09:44 AM »
I don't condone the use of illegal drugs. I was just wondering about how there are so many songs about blatant cocaine use.
I really do like pie.

...

You forgot The Supersuckers - Ron's Got The Cocaine, or Shooter Jennings - Little White Lines... although The Rev is a mighty good pick. Can't go wrong with bales of cocaine falling from low-flyin' planes.

But i had to pick Johnny Cash. I mean, almost every band worth their, uh... "salt" has played that song live, and it never gets old. Plus it's a nice cautionary tale. Can't glorify drug use too much, or ya' end up sounding like a damned hippie.

No mention of "White Lines (Don't Do It)" by Melle Mel and the Furious Five?  For shame, sir.

Indeed. And what about "Snowblind" by Styx?

Wish i could have picked a few, you can never do just one line listen to one song. My top two are the Buckcherry song, the only song by them that I like, and J.J. Cale's Cocaine.

I'm voting for Clapton's version. I don't like the tune much, but the lyrics sound like some sort of twisted TV commercial for Cocaine.

I know what most people are going to say after today. Cos there's a song in GTA IV called "Cocaine."

Also there is no song by Nirvana called Cocaine Girl. Some band mislabeled their song as a "rare nirvana track" to get some exposure a few years ago.


As far as cocaine songs go I would say "Free Cocaine" from the Dwarves is my favorite song about coke.

Exactly. Not sure why anyone would think it sounds anything like Nirvana.

Clapton is tops.
Cash is a close close close very close second.
Buckcherry is third.

"White lines" by Grandmaster Flash and The Furious Five is pretty good.
