These funny songs about getting high include some true classics, and they’re all perfect for any 4/20 playlist you might be putting together. Anyone looking to enjoy a few laughs while lighting up would be well served to take a listen.
No list of hilarious songs about being high would be complete without perhaps the most iconic tune of all: Afroman’s hysterical 2001 hip-hop song “Because I Got High.” Written on the fly by the rapper, the song's lyrics tells the story of a man who’s life is pretty much crumbling around him – all because he indulged in the smoke. He’s lost his job, he’s failing in school, he’s behind on his child support payments, and he’s even paralyzed now because he got into a car chase with the cops. His misfortune makes for one funny song.
Notable marijuana fan Willie Nelson also has a couple of gems on this list, including “Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die,” and his hilarious duet with Merle Haggard, “It’s All Going to Pot.” It just wouldn't be a pot-themed playlist without Willie, after all.
From Rick James to Toby Keith to Cab Calloway, these are some great silly songs about being high. Vote for the funniest songs of all, and laugh until it hurts.
