List Rules Vote up your favorite metal and hard rock songs about smoking marijuana.

With all the screaming, bludgeoning riffs, and unbridled aggression, it can be hard for some to associate metal with weed smoking. But if you've ever listened to Past Lives, the Black Sabbath live album, you know the connection between sweet leaf and righteous riffs is as old as metal itself, as evidenced by Ozzy Osbourne shouting "Are you high? Because I am!" early on in that record. 

What are the best metal songs about marijuana? It’s not hard to find excellent metal songs about weed. You can put together a killer playlist for 4/20 (or any other random day, for that matter) using songs on this list. Stoner metal has been around for a long time, and isn't the only metal subgenre with songs about tokin' up.

One of the most famous metal songs about smoking weed has to be “Sweet Leaf” by Black Sabbath. More than 45 years after its release, “Sweet Leaf” remains a staple on any self-respecting pot smoker’s metal playlist. 

There are so many hard rock songs about weed, it’s impossible to list them all, but we’ve given it our best shot. So add any that are missing, vote up the best, and vote down those you don’t think apply. Certainly, there’s debate about whether certain songs that seem to be about marijuana are actually about smoking weed. Enjoy the debate, and hopefully you’ll find some new favorites.
