It's no secret that drugs have been the inspiration for many great songs. While some composers delve deep into their artistic souls to pull out a piece of themselves, it's sometimes just as easy to write a song based on your love for your favorite substance. On the other hand, some of the greatest songs ever written have slipped drug references right under our noses.

As the decades have gone on, artists have found new and interesting ways to pass casual drug references under the radar in their songs. Whether it's laced in a metaphor or has a catchy melody, a lot of these songs have much more nefarious habits lying just underneath the surface. Instead of bopping along to a song about having fun, these tunes become a lot darker once you analyze the lyric sheet.

While some of the artists on this list have debated as to whether these songs are actually about drugs, it's kinda hard to take them at their word once you hear the lyrics in context. Let's a take a look at some of these supposedly innocent tracks and see what these guys are really trying to get at. Beware of the contact buzz.
