In the passing of classic American rock legend Tom Petty, we feel it is only right to celebrate his legacy with a list of 7 of his best ‘Stoner Rock’ songs. Aside from his music being categorized as Rock and Roll and 80’s Rock, many see Tom Petty as one of our ‘Stoner Rock’ all-time greats. That said, the songs selected here are about, or are at least in reference to, getting high. Though the songs listed may have more than one meaning and may or may not be specifically about cannabis, they do refer to getting high or coming down from a high, etc. All specifics aside, the main point here is to take a moment of appreciation and enjoy the man’s music.
One of the greatest song writers of our time, Tom Petty has created an amazingly huge catalog of hits since the late 70’s. This is just a brief glimpse into his world. If you like what you hear, we suggest delving into his music and his music history. There’s so much to hear and experience. From Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers to being a co-founder of supergroup the Traveling Wilburys, to his solo albums and his early band Mudcrutch, Tom Petty has left us with a lifetime of truly great American music.
So without any further ado, let’s get to the point!
