This man has had more chemicals in his body than a Rug Doctor, and one of the vast many was none other than heroin. His addiction and attempts to quit have interfered with recording sessions, such as that of Exile on Main Street, during which he would often find his way to the studio very late — when he did show — for trying to sleep off an addiction.
They had an extremely volatile relationship, based on sex, drugs and rock and roll; love mostly synthesized. Following her death, apparently unable to cope with guilt amongst all else, Vicious took a lethal dose of heroine — his last.
The song itself, through shimmering strings, builds up like a soothing body high until it climaxes and concludes rather drowsily. The song sounds like it was crafted by someone familiar with the effects of the drug.
King of the Hedonists, Jim Morrison took virtually every substance known to man, and perhaps some not known. Louise Ann Oldroyd. These eleven fantastically catchy songs are loaded with acerbic observations and wit. An overriding theme is that Great British conversation piece — the weather. This is a record destined to become my feel good album of the summer, rain permitting obviously. Better read, than dead, in other words.
Pete Craven. Ian Chaddock. Dry Heave Thundering effort from Montreal melodic hardcore punks. But Tyla has earned a certain pedigree as a songwriter, and Stonesy debauchery will always have its fans. At their peak, the group came close to matching the likes of Killing Joke for live intensity, via a combination of powerhouse rhythms, effects drenched guitar, and portentous vocals.
Following in the wake of some successful reunion shows, this new disc incorporates a more politicised lyrical direction and reconfigured sound. Dick Porter. Alison Bateman. John Damon. Although, instrumentally at least, the spectre of Nirvana is undeniable, Hole are the most obvious reference point here.
Having said that, the angst-ridden dramas played out in many of the songs belie a wry sense of humour too. Rich Deakin. Although Vidunder are perhaps not quite as relentlessly heavy as some of their Scandinavian contemporaries, like Greenleaf or Graveyard, this is still an album of some merit and certainly worth checking out if doom rock with a bluesy garage twist is your bag. H is about Maynard's son not heroin I believe.
It sure sounds like it is about heroin though. No it's not And besides, the lyrics mean what you want them to mean, that's the point of art. And to me it's about H. No, I mean the Johnny Cash version. The NiN version is meh. And yes, as you can see from the comments, I just found out that it was originally NiN who recorded that song, but the Johnny Cash version is better. After I kicked that song was practically orgasmic. Are you serious?
Always thought Johnny Cash was the original artist. Definitely would have known if it was Tool though, haha. Haha, I'll have to check it out. I was always more of a Alice in Chains and Nirvana fan "back in the day". Soundgarden is nostalgic too. Oxy Cotton is one of my favorite songs.
But for another heroin song check out "I need drugs" by necro :P. A lot of Alice In Chains. Listening to the album Dirt while going through withdrawal was haunting. Half the album is about addiction. Nutshell is my favourite. Upvote for you! Nutshell is one of those songs that squeezes my insides, makes me well up. Layne's voice when he hums those parts makes me shiver. Have you seen the unplugged video for it? Really plays with the emotions, especially when you know the way he wound up dying.
Just an incredible song : I listen to it quite a bit when I'm outside taking photos of abandoned buildings. Puts it all in an eerie perspective. I always get the best shots when listening to real emotional shit. Actually, thanks to this thread I'm going to head out on the bike and take some shots today, second spring seems to be coming back! Heroin used to be my favorite song, and all of my friends asked me if it was different for me after recent withdrawals - which were definitely more intense than any I'd had before just because of how hard I'd binged in the preceding week - and I told them no, it didn't, but Dirt did.
Junkhead is among the best heroin songs of all time. Well what have you got? I can make a world-famous beauty neglect her looks. I can make a good man forsake his wife. Send a greedy man to prison for the rest of his life. I can make a man forsake his country and flag. Make a girl sell her body for a five-dollar bag. Some think my adventure's a joy and a thrill, but I'll put a gun in your hand and make you kill I take my addicts and make 'em steal, borrow, beg, then they search for a vein in their arm or their leg King Heroin by James Brown.
This song is talking about heroin addiction so accurately that he must have had serious exposure to heroin addicition, and not the celebrity rehab kind. Talking from heroin's perspective, he says he will make you steal and prostitute then go to jail "where I can't get to you by visit or mail.

A classic gig that cuts through livecast Working Mens Club are one of most exciting bands in the UK who transcend these times and the tech to deliver a dark death disco perfectionSpivs are actually petty criminals, the term most commonly attached to rogue traders in the vein of Only Fools And Horses’ Del-Boy Trotter, so it is fitting that the album’s best track is entitled When Mickey Pearce Waved Goodbye. The song, with its angular guitar riffs, pounding bassline and memorable chorus, appears to be an ode to a.
