02.26.13 10 Best Songs To Get Drunk To...

10 Best Songs To Get Drunk To...

These are my ten favourite songs to get drunk to. Are there any that I have missed off the list? Comment underneath with your own favourite songs to get drunk to, I'd be interested in having a gander.
1Motley Crue
Kickstart My Heart

Every time I hear that bone-shaking intro from Mick Mars it ensures a rush of drunken flashbacks and an ear-to-ear grin. Kickstart My Heart epitomizes everything Motley Crue are good at. That riff, that sky-scraping chorus. Turn it up loud, close your eyes and imagine yourself sitting in the back of a pickup truck driving across the desert to Las Vegas, surrounded by sex and Jack Daniels. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D4aob4zlhIk
2RZL DZL
Ignorance is Bliss

About four years ago Razzle Dazzle made a small dent in the hardcore punk scene but sadly haven't released anything since. They're a party punk band that even dabble in Black Sabbath-esque riffs on their 'Strictly Saucers' album. It's one of a kind, seek it out. You can imagine this playing in the background while you're beer-bonging cheap lager and holding back the bile. It may not have changed the way the world works, but it?s a great song to get drunk to. Kick it! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9sErXB8cgfA
3Emphasis & Blast
Alcoholics Anonymous

This is an old UK hip hop tune that is pretty hard to find now. It will probably be lurking in peoples 'My Received Files' folders from the MSN Messenger days or lost on dusty forums. It's campfire hip hop, preferably played on a dodgy portable cassette player with a Desperado in hand. The beat is otherworldly. I couldn't find it online anywhere, so I uploaded it to YouTube for you to enjoy. "This one goes out to anyone sipping Malibu on beaches or swilling pints of Guinness in pubs." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gMZ1ThqSnt8
4Naked Raygun
Wonder Beer

A drunken mosh pit song for sure. Jeff Pezzati's lyric in the chorus; "If there are gods they must be drunk" says it all. Wonder Beer is about the grim times, the brain-ache on a Monday morning after a heavy weekend. It's taken from their huge 1989 album 'Understand?', which is a must for anyone who's into punk and doesn't already know. The lyrics have undertones of wonderment and confusion which I think we can all relate to. It reaffirms that when life feels a bit bent out of shape; getting drunk with friends and celebrating that we're all in the same weird boat has always worked for me. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=Cl1_f9Cvhug
5Down
Stone The Crow

Welcome to the south. Down are the titans of southern metal and Stone The Crow is a slow, mean, uncompromising example of it. It's from their superb 1995 debut album 'NOLA', which if you let it, will take you to the deepest, grimiest parts of New Orleans and make you love every minute. This is a perfect song to listen to whilst sitting on the front porch, wearing a cowboy hat with a shotgun in one hand and a glass of Jim Beam in the other. Alternatively, it also works in your back yard on a deck chair with a portable CD player and a 2 litre bottle of Frosty Jacks. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=FBLbrJxGtro
6The Aggrolites
Dirty Reggae

This song is why I love The Aggrolites, they are reggae prophets that sound like they've been sent to us from half a century ago. They write songs that you feel like you've always known, and they wear it well. Dirty Reggae is a party on record, I first heard it on a mixtape that I got sent when I joined Jamie T's mailing list about 6 years ago. Like with most of the songs on this list, the album it's taken from is great so get your grubby mitts on it if you like this tune. With this one I suggest you put your heads together and concoct a cocktail of the most tropical kind, invite some friends over and have a little dance. Remember dancing? http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=1NDDU1VZG8g
7Municipal Waste
Beer Pressure

I couldn't have a list of drinking songs without some thrash metal, so here's MW. 'The Art of Partying' album is without a doubt a house party essential. Beer Pressure makes listeners do three things: firstly, shotgun beers, then smash said beers on own head and then proceed to destroy everything in sight, and all this in under 3 minutes. Not many bands can say they have that effect on people. There's even a reference to one of my favourite 90s movies 'The Stoned Age' in the lyrics somewhere, awesome. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=UEe_gizkTWY
8Poison Idea
Just To Get Away

The ferocity contained in this song is a potential biohazard. Poison Idea are one of my favourite 80s hardcore punk bands and this is taken from their 1990 LP 'Feel The Darkness'. Jerry A. bellows about quitting his job, grabbing his girl and hitting the open road; no doubt about it, this is a freedom song. If Henry Rollins had directed Easy Rider, this would be the soundtrack. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qdcfxk-e_iw
9Reel Big Fish
Beer

This is an obvious one. I've heard it a thousand times and probably like many other fans, I've sang myself voiceless to it on many occasions. Reel Big Fish have been doing it for long enough to be heralded as one of the seminal American ska-punk bands. Beer is a break-up song that doesn?t promote a pit of despair and self-examination but instead RBF decided that Hawaiian shirts and cold beer is the proper way to deal with relationship troubles. It's up there with the best punk rock sing-alongs and it gets better with age. The moment I hear those sunny opening chords something happens inside me; "I think I'll have myself a beer." Exactly. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gql9220Qon8
10Pez & 360
The Festival Song

A reminiscent, end-of-summer Aussie hip hop song. The lyrics revel in looking back at the festival season remembering the calamity, the debauchery, the beers and the new friends. If, like me, you feel a certain comfort in being under-slept and drinking flat Tuborg from a paper cup in a field then you'll relate to these lyrics. It makes me want to crack open a frosty one and let out a humbled sigh, safe in the knowledge that although the festival season is over, planning for next summer will soon be in motion. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=QKMduRaWKIs
