    I'm coming to you guys for a little help. My wife is a singer for the Air Force rock band, and they're gearing up for a big "Drug Free" show. She's basically asking for 'feel good - stay of drugs - inspirational' type songs. I gave her "You are the Universe".

    Any suggestions?














    (oh, and she's also asked that we not be 'smart alec bass players' about it :D )

    No offence, but I guess you'll only find these in the christian music scene.

    Knock Me Down -RHCP

    maybe You by CandleBox... not sure if it's anti drug, but I always took it as such. It's not really an "Inspirational" type.
     
  4. "Wall of Denial" and "Tightrope" by Stevie Ray Vaughan come to mind.

    Neither are particularly feel good though... perhaps more learn by example.

    Hey - F'd Up On Drugs, which can be downloaded on the first page of our website is anti drug and we'd love if someone covered it....

    But I'm not too sure that's quite what you're looking for :).

    Under the Bridge - RHCP
    Master of Puppets - Metallica
     
  8. Under the Bridge by Red Hot Chili Peppers and Coma White by Marilyn Manson (this song would be cool acoustic)

    Anything by Suicidal Tendencies, one of the most anti-drug bands ever. One song in particular that comes to mind is 'Gotta Kill Captain Stupid', but dig around their catalog, Mike Muir bashes on druggies all the time.

  10. come on, the obvious choice here is minor threat's "straight edge." but she probably isn't too into punk, huh?
     
  11. Straightedge Punk music.

    but like DHC said, she's prolly not into punk music. I've seen/ heard some Air Force bands play, so I kinda doubt Earth Crisis would go over very well. However, they could take the lyrics and rewrite the music, and tone it down a little.

    bah! u beat me 2 it! straight edge is an awesome song. also anything by suicidial tendencies. they write a lot of anti-drug music.
     
  13. How'bout "The Dope Show" from Marilyn Manson:D
     
  14. How about "I've Seen the Needle and the Damage Done?" Or "Hotel California?" They're hardly "feel-good" songs, but sometimes you need to be (forgive the pun) smacked around a little.

    "Bad" -U2

    Not really feel good, but it's anti drugs.
     
  16. What about the Lynyrd Skynyrd song "That Smell" or something to that effect.

    Going way back..."Pusherman" by SteppenWolf

    I suppose you haven't heard Swedish rapper Dr. Alban's big early 90's hit, "No Coke".

    "No coke, no heroin, no hasch hasch, no amphetamine" :D

    Word.

    "I wasn't gonna run from the cops, but I was high...
    I was gonna pull right over and stop, but I was high...
    Now I'm a paraplegic, and I know why...
    Cuz I got high, cuz I got high, cuz I got hi-igh.
    La da dat dat dada da..."

    If that isn't conducive to abstinence, then the you're messed up in the head. Or high. :eek:
    :D
