If someone is actually trying to classify a genre of music as "stoner" they must be fucking retarded.

 

Yea sure, there's certain albums I like listening to more when I'm real stoned but that's about as far as that goes.

Stereotypical Stoner Tunes

-Phish

-Dave Mathews

-Bob Marley

-Pink Floyd

-Grateful Dead

-Hendrix

 

I'm sure I missed alot of bands, but that's what comes to mind when I think of high-asses rocking out.

there's also a whole subsection of music coming out refered to as 'stoner rock'... i cant think of too many bands right off the top of my head, but queens of the stone age were always considered 'stoner' until their newest album. also kyuss, the predisesor to q.o.t.s.a. was 'stoner rock'. theres also alot of 'doom rock' bands that are kind of 'stoner rock' also... clearlight, nebula, goatsnake, electric wizard, etc.

clutch = fucking awesome.

clutch is a difficult one because only about half of their stuff is 'stoner rock'. the other half is pretty metaly. 'jam room' totally qualifies.

hot.

 

i was at a public enemy show...probably 92 or 93. for some reason there were only about 3-400 people at the show, which was outdoors, at an ampatheater that is on top of a parking garage. i'm standing there, and theres this older white guy...prolly mid 30's, in a bright blue hawaiian shirt....totally ridiculous. so he fires up a joint, hands it over, i get super baked, and it was dope.

that's the whole story. but just the fact that im at a PE show, 99% black folks, me and my boy (16 or 17 at the time) and an old white guy in a hawaiian shirt. it rocked.

 

public enemy dumb good.

 

thats all.

there is a difference between music that high school kids get high and listen to (ie: pink floyd, phish, dead) and 'stoner rock'. it's a 'sound', not necessarily just a kind of music that is 'trippy' when you're baked. since you don't know what we're talking about, yet you're trying to talk about it anyway, you don't know what you're talking.

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO STONER-ROCK?

 

The question dumped itself on me some days ago and after I puzzled about it for a while I started researching stuff and this much I can tell you, folks: Stoner-Rock is well dead. As dead as it ever was, actually, and withholding the little flickering of life between about 1995 and 2000 or so, there was never much live to it anyway . My main point is: those bands which were always around doing, what is now considered as Stoner-Rock, will keep on staying. But these bands, e.g. Cathedral, Scott “Wino” Weinrich, Sleep, amo, never made Stoner-Rock, they made Metal. Call it Doom or Dark or heavy as horseshit, it was metal. Those other bands, who infused Stoner-Rock with life are either all gone, like Kyuss, or moved on to other quarters - some doing interesting stuff like Josh Homme (Queens of The Stone Age), other doing just a heavier version of plain old rock’n’roll (these are too many to mention). Other bands, which are “new” and are helplessly filed und sold under the moniker, e.g. everything on Southern Lord, are also Doom-Metal or even Southern Rock or something else. Stoner Rock, my friends and fellow-victims, is dead.
