* The Music/{{Styx}} song "Snowblind" is all about the "glorious" life of being a big name rock star who is spending most of his cash on cocaine, and how much the singer hates it.

to:

* Melle Mel's "White Lines (Don't Don't Do It)" was originally written as a sarcastic OdeToIntoxication about cocaine, but ultimately the anti-drug message was made more blatant due to commercial considerations. This is probably why it alternates lyrics about how good the drug can make you feel ("white lines, visions dreams of passion") with ones about how dangerous it is ("Either up your nose or through your vein /With nothin' to gain, except killin' your brain")

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l7TWLxCIgwE "Too Drunk to Fuck"]] by DeadKennedys is a slightly more comical example.

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]]).
