Top 10 Songs About Weed and Pot To Get High To

When you're ready to roll up a doobie, a joint, a splif, these are the 10 best songs to listen to

Today is April 20th and you know what that means; it’s 420 a.k.a Cannabis day. In honor of this pothead holiday, we’ve decided to find 10 songs that are either devoted to marijuana or are just awesome to listen to while under the influence. Without further ado, here are UpVenue’s picks for the best stoner songs.


Cypress Hill - Want To Get High

It’s really hard finding a song from Cypress Hill that isn’t about weed. Seriously, look through their repertoire and you will see that these guys celebrate cannabis day all year round. We've decided to go with Want To Get High which was also featured in the movie Half Baked.

Choice Lyric:
Forward motion
Make you sway like the ocean
The herb is more than just a powerful potion
What’s the commotion


Bob Marley - Kaya

Bob Marley got Jamaican reggae on the map and his love for ganja didn’t hurt his success. Kaya is just another word for marijuana and here is Marley’s tribute to leaf.

Choice Lyric:
I feel so high, I even touch the sky
Above the falling rain
I feel so good in my neighbourhood, so
Here I come again


Neil Young - Roll Another Number

Here’s an oldie but a goodie. Roll Another Number is the perfect song to lie down on the lawn to and enjoy a newly lit splif.

Choice Lyric
Think I'll roll another number for the road,
I feel able to get under any load.


Rick James - Mary Jane

“I’m Rick James, bitch!”

Choice Lyric:

I'm in love with Mary Jane.
I'm not the only one.
If Mary wanna play around,
I let her have her fun.


Tom Petty - You Don't Know How it Feels

This song was banned from TV when it was released because of the drug references; well this isn’t television now is it? Enjoy Tom’s joint song.

Choice Lyric:
So let's get to the point, let's roll another joint
And let's head on down the road


The Beatles - I Am The Walrus

Lennon confirmed that the first part of “I Am The Walrus” was written on an acid trip and we can’t possibly imagine how this song in its final form would have existed otherwise. The later parts of the song aren’t very subtle as “Everybody smoke pot” is repeated over and over.

Choice Lyric
Everybody smoke pot! Everybody Smoke Pot!


Steve Miller Band - The Joker

We have made an exception with Steve Miller Band’s the joker. The song isn’t a tribute to the leaf but damnit; it’s the perfect song to smoke up to.

Choice Lyric:
I'm a joker
I'm a smoker
I'm a midnight toker


Afroman - Because I Got High

This is one of the most fun pot songs out there. Smoke up and be worry free people!

Choice Lyric:
I was gonna go to class before I got high
I coulda cheated and I coulda passed but I got high
I am taking it next semester and I know why
cause I got high, cause I got high, cause I got high


The Doors - Light My Fire

This song propelled The Doors into stardom. It’s also one of our favorites from the band but please, Can someone please light his fire?

Choice Lyric:
Girl, we couldn't get much higher
Come on baby, light my fire


Pink Floyd - Comfortably Numb

To fully enjoy Pink Floyd’s The Wall, you need to be under the influence of some kind of drug. By now, you should be pretty stoned and pretty numb. Enjoy!

Choice Lyric:
There is no pain, you are receding.
A distant ships smoke on the horizon.
You are only coming through in waves.
Your lips move but I cant hear what you’re saying.
