10 Greatest Stoner Bands

Subscribe to KLAQ El Paso on

Inhale deep and stick out your tongue, we’ve put together our picks for the 10 Greatest Stoner Bands!

Like the great Bill Hicks said, “If you don’t think drugs have done good things for us, go home and take all your albums, all your tapes and all your CDs and burn them.” Some musicians take to weed or psychedelics a little heavier than others, so much that the substances become an artist’s foundation for creativity.

Perhaps no metal musician is better associated with pot than Matt Pike. The gnarliest of riff masters has created some of metal’s trippiest stuff with Sleep and High on Fire. If Sleep is the sonic personification of marijuana, then High on Fire is LSD mixed with speed. Both bands are wildly celebrated and we’ve got Matt Pike’s love affair with mind-expansion to thank.

You can’t talk about weed and music without mentioning Kyuss. The desert rock (no, not dessert rock) band created some cult favorites after hitting the pipe, launching the legendary three-decade career of Josh Homme. Albums like Blues for the Red Sun are still hailed as essentials, and once again, the sweet leaf is partially to thank.

Check out the 10 Greatest Stoner Bands in hard rock and metal in the Loud List above!
