Electric Ladyland – Jimi Hendrix Experience
There’s something about the confounding nature of getting stoned that seemingly elevates all types of rock music. Whether it’s hard, slamming riffs or light and airy melodies, smoking weed can lift in the most basic jams. There are some records, however, that can lift you off right alongside your latest purchase. It would appear for every strain of THC dusted bush, there is the perfect album to accompany it.
It depends on mood too. Some days, when you’re skating around high as a kite, you might feel so on top of the world that you need the swaggering riffs of the aptly named High Desert in California to give that extra spring in your step. On the other hand, rock is also there for you in the bluer, mellower moments when you’re stoned. Be it after a long day’s work when you’re in dire need of some respite, or even after a breakup, when you want to turn your brain off and plug into a stereo-sound cosmos.
There are many fantastic rock bands whose music is perfect to smoke weed to. Whether it be the gigantic bong huffing riffs off Sleep or the ethereal beauty of Slowdive, it’s a vast expanse with a little bit for everybody in it. Duly, we’ve listed the ten best rock albums to smoke up to.
Be prepared to go on a real sonic journey, there are some classics and some lesser-known titles here, but one thing is clear. Each one will make your high experience better and make your music library feel a touch more complete.
