The "DrugsAreBad" Ode To Sobriety is usually engaged in by StraightEdge bands or artists, though others can occasionally do it (a common instance with non StraightEdge artists is generally focused on a specific substance). As opposed to the ambivalent, bitter reflections of the Deconstructed OdeToIntoxication, it is simply DrugsAreBad as a song. It's a condemnation/callout of a specific substance and/or its users, and/or of alcohol or drug use in general.

* [[http://youtu.be/Aq344ks1ieg "Cocaine Blues"]] by JohnnyCash. Also a MurderBallad-- maybe even more than this trope.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xtcUEP6goZ0 "Cold Turkey"]] by JohnLennon (could fit Deconstructed OdeToIntoxication variant, but it's better here as he's [[GoingColdTurkey suffering through the song]]).

* The Beautiful South's "Liars' Bar" which serves "rum by the kettledrum, whisky by the jar" and has the sort of clientele which encourage sobriety - even if you don't take them as a horrible warning, then certainly so you don't have to hang out with them.

* Music/{{Sia}}'s "Chandelier" starts off with a party girl bragging about her hard drinking ways. But halfway through the chorus, it turns dark and the party girl sings about how she's just "holding on". The second verse has her hungover.
