Drug References Songs

When was the last time you really listened to the words in your favorite pop songs? There are more references to drugs and alcohol than you probably realize.

Drugs were once a taboo topic, only spoken of behind closed doors and in dark basements. Of course, drug references in music are nothing new, but they were once reserved for less mainstream music listened to by a select audience. Today though, it’s commonplace to hear nonchalant drug references in some of today’s hottest pop songs.

While alcohol is the most commonly referenced substance in music today, references to 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine or MDMA – commonly called molly or ecstasy – are on the rise.

For example, Miley Cyrus’s song “We Can’t Stop” created controversy when she used the line “dancing with molly.” Rapper Rick Ross lost his contract with Reebok after rapping about putting “molly all in her champagne,” an allusion to date rape. Madonna’s latest album released in 2012 is titled MDNA, a blatant reference to the drug, and she has also asked concert goers, “How many people in the crowd have seen molly?”

Marijuana references are also common in pop music. The National Institute on Drug Abuse states that marijuana use was down in the mid 2000s but has been on the rise since about 2010.
