What's your stoned soundtrack of 2015? Yesterday WeedStream.net released its list of the top ten weed-related songs of the year. The list includes tracks from a few usual suspects, including Snoop Dogg and Kottonmouth Kings, but also notes surf-rockers Best Coast ("California Nights") and British dance-pop duo The Ting Tings ("Green Poison") for their contributions to cannabis culture.
WeedStream is an online radio station that describes itself as "indie rock," but whose primary objective is to serve the marijuana community (as we type this, the station is playing "The Seed 2.0" by The Roots, for example). The top ten list was compiled by station programmers adhering to an unknown algorithm involving airplay and "the influence of OG Kush."
WeedStream will play the countdown Tuesday, December 15, starting at 4 p.m. MST, and listening is available online or the iHeartRadio and TuneIn mobile apps. Countdowns will be aired at different times through January 1, 2016.
Check out the list below and let us know what you think. What songs are missing? Los Angeles native and relative unknown Dylan Kelly claimed the top spot with "All My Friends," the song that helped him land a deal with Republic Records. The track's guitars are woozy, and the voice is a bit hazy, but when the chorus chants, "All my friends are high," the message is clear.
10. 7Horse - "A Friend in Weed"
9. Pop Evil - "Ways To Get High"
8. The Ting Tings - "Green Poison"
7. Joss Stone - "Sensimilla"
6. Andrew Watt - "High"
5. Best Coast - "California Nights"
4. King Tuff - "Alone and Stoned"
3. Kottonmouth Kings - "Pump Up the Bass"
