The Top 20 Classic Stoner Songs of All Time, Part 1

4. Rainy Day Women #12 & 35 - Bob Dylan (1966)

Everybody must get stoned.

Dylan brazenly sings the druggy refrain on this No. 2 hit from Blonde on Blonde, but it's not quite clear if he's talking about marijuana or getting high though people have long derived that meaning from this raucous number. The title was a ruse so the song could get airplay. Multiply 12 x 35 and you get 420. Covered by the Beatles, Jimmy Buffett and the Black Crowes (1995).
