  • Also, “Confortably Numb” Isn’t about Heroin, though the lyrics strongly suggest it.

    Actually, It’s about when before a show in Philadelphia, Roger Waters got really sick, and had a Doctor come inject him with some medicine which ended up making him feel even worse, making him sweat a lot through his hands and he couldn’t play…look it up if you don’t believe me he talked about it in an interview…he knew people would take it as Heroin though so really it has a double meaning, like most of these songs do :)

  • I know of 2 not on the list –

    “Crash Into Me” Dave Matthews Band (Heroin)

    “I’m So Tired” The Beatles (Opiate Withdrawl)

  • The Widow- The Mars Volta its about a friend of the band who O.D’d on heroin and went into a coma then later killed hisself

  • “Indigo Friends” by the Reverend Horton Heat should be on here.
    “Nurture My Pig” by the same band should not.
