Marilyn Manson has two on his second Concept Album, Mechanical Animals, which contains two characters (which would take several paragraphs to explain). Omēga sings "The Dope Show", which is, in-universe, non-sarcastic but is sarcastic in real life (with a large Misaimed Fandom) and Alpha sings "I Don't Like The Drugs (But The Drugs Like Me)" which is much more anti-drug.
"New Kind of Kick" by The Cramps ("Energine! Barcol! Draino hot shot! Whack attack! Helium! Nitrous oxide! Formaldehyde! Some new kind of kick!")
"Streams Of Whiskey" by The Pogues. ("When the world is too dark and I need the light inside of me / I'll walk into a bar and drink fifteen pints of beer!")
"Got to Get You Into My Life" by The Beatles from Revolver is a totally sincere (and very subtle) song about Paul McCartney's love of marijuana.
At first listen, the song "Stella" by the pop-punk band All Time Low appears to be a love song to a girl, but then you realize that Stella is actually a beer, Stella Artois...
I remember how you tasted
I've had you so many times, let's face it
Feels like I'm falling in love alone
Stella, won't you take me home?
Skold vs. KMFDM's track, "Alkohol". The title indicates the subject matter.
The devil goes by many names
Lets get basted, shit-faced, wasted
Angelspit's "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, suggested as being from the 'point of view' of the addiction itself. There are a few interesting analyses on Songmeanings.net.
The infamous "Beer" song set to the 1812 Overture/Overture to Carmen..
Oh, what is that malted liquor,
what gets you drunker quicker,
what comes in bottles or in cans?
Buck Tick loves this. Speed (which was originally going to be named Acid with different lyrics, but since Acid and its lyrics were verboten, Sakurai and Imai rewrote it and renamed it to be about an even more dangerous drug) and Heroin, and those are just the too obvious ones. There's plenty more less obvious such as Candy and My Fuckin Valentine and Machine and Jonathan Jet Coaster.
Some considered it in poor taste to include the song on their first album after Bon Scott died of alcohol poisoning, but their response was basically, "Not at all; Bon would have loved this song." (it could also be an homage to him, just like "Hells Bells" is a Grief Song)
Franz Ferdinand has "Ulysses", a song about a night full of drugs and partying.
Korpiklaani has a bunch of these, mostly without a hint of irony. "Vodka" is probably the most over-the-top.
Drinking is good for you!
Not anymore lonesome.
Drinking is good for you!
Oh you will feel awesome!
Don't forget Wooden Pints, Bring Us Pints of Beer, Happy Little Boozer, Tequila, Let's Drink, and Beer Beer. Korpiklaani *loves* doing songs like this.
The Irish folk song, "Whiskey, you're the Devil".
Another example is "Seven Drunken Nights": a man comes home drunk each night and finds things that don't belong to him, and his wife calls him a drunken fool — can't he see it's not a horse/coat, it's a sow/blanket her mother sent her? The last two verses are rather explicit, so the Dubliners version cuts off at five nights.
Although Mike Harding's version, set in darkest Lancashire, reinstates the two missing verses.
"Water is alright in Tea" is another example which lists off the virtue of porter compared to water, wine and tea.
Whiskey, Whiskey by Tri Yann is an example of a Breton ballad to the bottle.
Carmina Burana (Orff) features a whole section, In Taverna, dedicated to drinking songs, including a song which lists all those to be found in the pub in question, plus a song from the point of the roasted swan on the spit. The Abbot of Cucany leads the drinkers.
There's an old song called "Clink, Clink, Another Drink," popularized by comedy musician Spike Jones. Notable for showing the other side of the bottle, personified by Mel Blanc in full Daffy Duck mode.
We Are Scientists sang about how great it is to stay out as late as possible and drink in After Hours. The sentiment of the song seems to be about the social side to drinking, and wanting to continue drinking with friends.
Jerrod Niemann's "One More Drinking Song" Lampshades this trope.
"Red Red Wine" and "Cracklin Rosie" by Neil Diamond. And although "Sweet Caroline" isn't about alcohol per se, thanks to sports fans (especially Red Sox Nation), it's probably sung sloshed more often than not.
I've got the worst hangover ever I'm crawlin' to the bathroom again It hurts so bad that I'm never gonna drink again I'll probably never drink again I may not ever drink again At least not 'til next weekend I'm never gonna drink again
"Standing Sex" and the Jealousy version of "Stab Me In The Back" by X Japan. "Stab Me In The Back" is odd though in that the single version (and most of the live versions) are about gaysex - it is only the Jealousy version rewritten to be an Ode to Intoxication, 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.
Swedish tradition has snapsvisor that are sung before you take a sip during holiday celebrations. They are usually about how good it is to drink, though there are many, many variations and parodies.
Classic Swedish trobadour Carl Michael Bellman wrote lots of songs about partying with pretty girls and getting drunk.
Bob Marley: Easy Skankin (from Kaya), Jump Nyabinghi (from Confrontation), Rebel Music (from Natty Dread) 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 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.
Almost the entire catalogue Brazilian band Planet Hemp - though in their case, to ask for the legalization of marijuana.
East Coast punk band Gang Green were pretty fond of drinking songs. Their best-known example is "Alcohol":
Nickelback has Burn It to the Ground and Bottoms Up.
Shelley West sings "Jose Cuervo," a song about how she loves to go out at night, drink tequila and get crazy. When she wakes up with a hangover and a stranger in her bed, she admits to drinking more than she should. However, the last verses imply that she'll be doing this again.
In The Long Ships Orm's oar-mate Khalid wrote one of these, which in the sharia-ruled Almohad Caliphate got him convicted of blasphemy and sentenced to the galleys. He attempts to write an Ode To Sobriety, but the author dryly states that he found praising water and lemon juice difficult.
"Alcohol" by gypsy punk icons Gogol Bordello. "And you know that I'll pick up every time you call / Just to thank you one more time / Alcohol!"
"Drunk In The Spirit" by T-Bone is about a different kind of intoxication based on the spurious claim from Scripture (usually from Acts chapter 2 and Ephesians 5:18) preached by the likes of Benny Hinn, Rodney Howard Browne, and Kenneth E. Hagin, and presented in Pentecostal and Charismatic circles as The Moral Substitute to getting high from real drugs.
Sä kuulut päivään jokaiseen is one of the best-loved Finnish tangos and love songs of all time, with its lyrics (translated) including: You belong to sunrise and moonlight / you're the morning dew, the golden sunset, the song of a bird at night / I see a shooting star and think of you / Even if I left everyone else, I would never abadon you. Written by a heavy-weight alcoholic, the target of its affections is thought to be alcohol and not a person.
"Drinkin' To Drink" by Christian Kane.
Lil Wyte has a bunch of these: "Drinking Song", "Smoking Song", "Smoke My Dro", "Get High", "Acid", "Oxy Cotton".
"Advertisement (Another Irrelevant Intentional Suicide)" by Roy Harper is all about getting stoned, and includes a defiant Take That to the DS:note Americans: think DEA
Well, you've bust me once
You've bust me twice
But you'd have to top me
To finally stop me
From rolling my dice
I'm really stoned, I'm really stoned
Permanently out my bone
I'm really stoned...
Also, the album sleeve is designed to look like an unfolded packet of orange Rizlas. The title of the album is "Jugula" (sic) because Roy Harper can't spell "jugular"; it is not known if this orthographical failure is due to him being really stoned.
Conversational Troping in Maskerade, when Nanny Ogg claims that light opera is when everyone sings in foreign and it means "Beer! Beer! Beer! I like to drink lots of beer!" In Carpe Jugulum we're given an example; Nanny has a beer stein that plays "Ich Bin Ein Rattarsedschwein" (I Am A Rat-Arsed Swine) from The Student Horse.
The Polish heroicomical poem Monachomachia (literally "war of monks". It describes, in language better suited for describing epic ancient battles, a theological dispute degenerating into a giant brawl) contains a piece praising the "love of the glass" after a cup of wine is used to end the brawl by starting a binge. (as you can guess, the author, himself a priest, didn't think much of the morality in the monasteries of his time)
Referenced in the novel The Long Ships. While serving as a galley slave, Orm's oarmate is an Arabic poet named Khalid, who wrote one. It was considered a critique of Islam, ad he was found guilty of blasphemy and sent to the galleys. He tries to write an Ode To Sobriety while rowing, but he finds it very difficult to find good things to say about water and lemon juice.
Most of the operetta The Student Prince. "Ein zwei drei vier! Lift your stein and drink your beer!"
