* Tad's "Jack Pepsi" is about an incident where Tad Doyle and a friend went on a drunken joyride in his friend's father's new pickup truck that culminated in the two of them going straight through the ice on Lake Lowell in western Idaho after doing donuts on the ice while chugging a bottle of Jack Daniel's.

The vocalist sings about how great it is to get drunk, high, or stoned - often, but not always, with biting sarcasm (and even if it's ''intended'' ironically, that [[MisaimedFandom doesn't mean the fans will take it that way]].) When the tongue-in-cheek version is used well, it can double as a less {{Anvilicious}} way of saying DrugsAreBad, becoming Type 1 of the OdeToSobriety. Compare DrunkenSong, when the singer is currently drunk--which can certainly overlap with this trope.

* Music/{{Angelspit}}'s "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VRImfk_E1Qc Elixir]]" is an interesting case. The general theme is that 'there's a drug for everything nowadays' but it also covers drug addiction - including the chorus, [[WordOfGod suggested]] as being from the 'point of view' of the addiction itself. There are a few interesting analyses on [[http://www.songmeanings.net/songs/view/3530822107858640687/ Songmeanings.net]].

** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C4Bp-68W-2c Methamphetamine]]": From ''Tennessee Pusher''. Also kinda obvious--although it's mostly negative (being a reaction to the meth epidemic that's afflicted rural America since at least the early 2000s).

* Brazil has quite a few songs about [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cacha%C3%A7a cachaša]], such as "Marvada Pinga" ("evil cachaša"), "Pinga Ni Mim" ("drops on me" - DoubleEntendre meaning both raindrops and beverage drops) and Music/PatoFu's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KH6253M8sMs "Pinga"]].

* "Standing Sex" and the ''Jealousy'' version of "Stab Me In The Back" by Music/XJapan. "Stab Me In The Back" is odd though in that the single version (and most of the live versions) are about [[HoYay gay]] [[{{Yaoi}} sex]] - it is only the ''Jealousy'' version rewritten to be an OdeToIntoxication, likely due to label pressure - and Yoshiki finding his own way to flip off the people imposing "no gay" by making the song about injecting drugs. ''IV'' could also be interpreted in this way.

* Music/BobMarley: ''Easy Skankin'' (from ''[[Music/KayaBobMarleyAlbum Kaya]]''), ''Jump Nyabinghi'' (from ''Music/{{Confrontation}}''), ''Rebel Music'' (from ''Music/NattyDread'') talk in positive terms about marihuana. However despite all that he was actually quite critical of people just being stoned and doing nothing to change the system. He even referenced it in songs like ''Burnin' And Lootin' '' from ''Music/{{Burnin}}'' (''"I must say: all them- all them drugs gonna make you slow/ It's not the music of the ghetto."'') and ''"Pimper's Paradise'' (from ''Music/{{Uprising}}''). * Almost the entire catalogue Brazilian band Planet Hemp - though in their case, to ask for the legalization of marijuana.

* Music/RayCharles's "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gFwhCLYO_-M Let's Go Get Stoned]]," while ostensibly about [[DrowningMySorrows drowning one's sorrows]] in gin (at that time, "stoned" could mean "drunk" as well as "high"), is laced with references to marijuana - and accompanied by [[GospelChoirsAreJustBetter a gospel choir]], humorously enough. Music/JoeCocker's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gDhDUSmHvHQ cover]], famously performed at {{Woodstock}}, makes the marijuana connection even more obvious.

* A video game example - the first song that you can hear in the 2004 version of ''TheBardsTale'' is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HdO6xLqc-Yo 'Beer, Beer, Beer,']] an ode to the man who created beer there. It's even sung by the town drunks, [[FollowTheBouncingBall and you can sing along, too, if you like]].

* "And She Was" by Music/TalkingHeads is fairly transparently an account of a young woman's essentially pleasant (probably) first experience with LSD or another psychedelic. This is pretty well borne out by the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YgSVTdAtNYE video]].
