Five Classic Albums Every Stoner Should Listen To

  • Comments

Listening to music is an excellent way to enjoy your high. We hope that you’ve already listened to these five classic albums, but if you haven’t do it right now for classic stoner enjoyment.

Pink Floyd- Dark Side of the Moon

Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon” released in 1973 is a classic album for a reason. “Dark Side of the Moon” begins with the pulsating of a heart and the distant sounds of a helicopter, then culminates in a ringing crescendo of classic electric guitar. Roger Waters’ stunning guitar licks tend to stay with you, long after the album has ended. All the tracks on the album are amazing, so we’d recommend starting from the beginning until the last track “Eclipse”. From the first sound of the clock ticking to the final chord, this album will have you pondering what really lies on the dark side of the moon.

Neil Young-Harvest

Neil Young’s fourth studio album released in 1972 is without a doubt one of the best rock and roll albums of all time. This album is a must for any stoner to listen to, particularly if you enjoy playing guitar after you smoke up. My personal favorite is the classic hit “Old Man”, for the finger picking banjo and gentle thumping bass line. Try to sing the chorus of this song quietly, I bet you can’t!

Led Zeppelin IV

Led Zeppelin’s fourth studio album, released in 1971 is true rock and roll greatness. Jimmy Page’s buzzsaw guitar has inspired many rock and roll musicians and Robert Plant’s impressive falsetto will leave marks on your psyche. This album contains their most well-known hit “Stairway to Heaven”, which is a good song but hardly the best track on the album. I recommend the first track “Black Dog” and the second “”Rock and Roll” for a high, headbanging good time. For the nerdier definitely give “Misty Mountain Hop” a listen as it is an homage to J.R.R. Tolkien’s classic tale The Hobbit.

Bob Marley-Exodus

All of Bob Marley and the Wailers’ albums contain classic songs for stoners, but the definitive Bob Marley album would have to be Exodus because it contains the ultimate stoner anthem “Jammin”. Exodus was a pivotal album for Marley because it marked the band’s emergence into writing about social and political issues. Exodus also has “One Love” which is the perfect song for stoner togetherness.

Sublime 40 oz to Freedom

Sublime’s late singer Bradley Nowell mixes reggae beats and ska music to give the listener a unique musical experience in this debut album. 40 oz to Freedom is best known for the song “Smoke Two Joints” which is perfect for lighting up a joint or two. There are other classic tracks on the album that are definitely worth listening to. I recommend “Date Rape” which uses horns and saxophone for a classic ska sound. Also worth listening to is the lesser known “Let’s Get Stoned” which is the perfect mix of reggae sound and funk rock.
