Drugs, Booze and Rock and Roll

They’ve at it again! In May, the folks at ProjectKnow.com made an infographic about the use of drug and alcohol terms in Hip-Hop music.

Now they’ve done it for Rock and Roll.

Project Know is an organization founded to inform parents and family members of those struggling with addiction, as well as addicts and alcoholics themselves, about the options available for treating addiction.

The infographic depicts the number of rock songs which mention specific drugs, as well as which drugs a rocker will most frequently refer. Tom Wait tops the list of Top Ten Artists with Songs about Drugs. He is followed by the Grateful Dead and Bob Dylan. Alcohol is the number 1 drug referred to by all three. When you look at the number of drug references as a percentage of the number of songs the artist or group has performed, then Hollywood Undead leads the pack, with over half of their songs having drug or alcohol references!

We reproduce the infographic for your perusal.
