Drugs. Muse, enhancement, and, often, tragic thief of lives. Music’s history is deeply intertwined with narcotics of all kinds: singers opining about the joys and perils of marijuana, cocaine, and a whole host of other narcotics (not to mention alcohol, another topic with its own storied collection of songs for another day) further back than recorded sound can attest.

Check out 35 of our favorite odes, warnings, and meditations about music’s old companion, drugs.
