Need drinking song suggestions
 
I'm putting together a compilation of drinking and alcohol-related songs for a pre-pub crawl get together I'm having with some friends. Anyone have any suggestions? My friends are mostly skaters, punkers and few general hipster types, so no Jimmy Buffet suggestions.

A few songs already on my list:
  • Gotta Get Drunk -- Willie Nelson and that other guy
  • Sally Maclennae -- The Pogues
  • Drinking and Driving -- The Business
  • Drinking and Driving -- Black Flag
  • Titty Twister -- Diesel Boy
  • Barroom Hero -- Dropkick Murphys

Since you already have one country song on your list - here's a link to CMT's top 40 drinking songs:

Wow. I was working on the same thing.

Whisky in the jar - Metallica
One Bourbon, One Scotch, and One Beer - George Throrogood
Mas Tequila - Sammy Hagar (A must, this song is a blast)
I drink Alone - GT
Have a Drink on Me - AC/DC
Tequila Sunrise - Eagles

and one of my most hated songs in the world
Margaritaville - Jimmy Buffett

But, I'm at work and can't remember what is in my playlist at home.

Tubthumping, or is it Tubthumper? That Chumbawamba song from a few years ago.

Gather your Brothers, pour yourself a giant, Viking-sized flagon of mead and put on any album by MANOWAR. Hours of fun!

"Drink" by the great but obscure Jazz Butcher Conspiracy.
Best drinking song ever.

Lyrics:

I'm broken-hearted
With all that this entails
It takes some concentrated drinking
To keep me on the rails
I have to hide my face
I have to hide my shame
I don't wait 'til I'm sober
'Til I get drunk again
I drink at home
I drink out
I drink in cocktail bars
Falling down
Seeing stars
It suits me
It suits me
Going astray
In all the bars from here to Mandalay
They never close
We never pay
Chorus:

My oh my
We can't compete
It's only heavy drinking that keeps us on our feet
My oh my
I can't complain
If it weren't for heavy drinking
We'd never play Sweet Jane
My my my, oh my
The days go by
I never quite forget her
But goodness how I try
Believe me
Believe me
Falling apart in bars
I like to suffer for my art
Just one more before we part

Don't want to think
About how much I drink
It's a habit that's out of control
Hope I never get dry before I get old.

Trombone (trombone solo)

Chorus

Don't want to think
About how much I drink
It's a habit that's out of control
Hope I never get dry (before you get)
Hope I never get dry now (before you get)
Hope I never get dry before I get old... mmmmm... mmmm

My mom loves some song about whisky for my men and beer for the horses or something like that.
<--- not a country fan. I'm sure there are plenty of songs in that genre though.

Kid Rock - Wasting Time

Drunk Drivin' - Sublime

Extremely short though...

Gang Green's "Alcohol" is a classic. If there was ONE drinking song that says it all, it's this one.

Tankard, a German metal band, has a ton of them. I like "Chemical Invasion" which rally's against laws that let brewers make unpure beer.

There's a few punk rock compilations that are all about drinking. (not at home, so I can't look it up right now).

The Dragons have a couple (at least). "Three Steps To The Bar" and "Loaded".

Supersuckers "Drink And Complain"

The Donnas have a few too. "Pass It Around", "5 O Clock In The Morning"

pezsoup 06-15-04 11:43 AM

The Tossers "Monday Morning" would be perfect for ya...

A Salty Salute - Guided by Voices

Disarm the settlers
The new drunk drivers
Have hoisted the flag
We are with you in your anger
Proud brothers
Do not fret
The bus will get you there yet
To carry us to the lake
The club is open
Yeah, the club is open
Hey, the club is open
A-come on, come on, the club is open
C'mon, c'mon, the club is open
C'mon, c'mon, c'mon, the club is open...

Here Comes a Regular is about drinking? I thought it was about not conforming.

Now Red, Red Wine - that's about drinking


A bottle of Chablis, hey now, that ain't no stuff for me
Chateau Timberley, as long as I can't see
Gallo or Muscatel, either one would be just swell
I didn't come here to fight, hey just as long as that ain't white

Now I ain't no connoiseur cat - the conno-sewer/kinda sewer rat
Red red wine on Sunday
Always tastes so good
Red red wine
Red red wine
Red red wine if you would

Hey now as long as it is red, oh set 'em up until we're dead
A Saturday sippin' beer, let's get a jug without a year

Now I ain't no connoiseur cat, I think you guessed that
Red red wine on Sunday
Just like Martin said
Red red wine
Red red wine
Set us up 'till we're dead

I ain't no connoiseur cat, conno-sewer rat
... on Sunday
Just like Martin said
Red red wine
Red red wine
Set us up 'till we're dead

And of course

Alcohol by the Kinks:


Here is a story about a sinner,
He used to be a winner who enjoyed a life of prominence and position,
But the pressures at the office and his socialite engagements,
And his selfish wife’s fanatical ambition,
It turned him to the booze,
And he got mixed up with a floosie
And she led him to a life of indecision.
The floosie made him spend his dole
She left him lying on skid row
A drunken lag in some salvation army mission.
It’s such a shame.

Oh demon alcohol,
Sad memories I cannot recall,
Who thought I would say,
Damn it all and blow it all,
Oh demon alcohol,
Memories I cannot recall,
Who thought I would fall a slave to demon alcohol.

Barley wine pink gin,
He’ll drink anything,
Port, pernod or tequila,
Rum, scotch, vodka on the rocks,
As long as all his troubles disappeared.
But he messed up his life and he beat up his wife,
And the floosie’s gone and found another sucker
She’s gonna turn him on to drink
She’s gonna lead him to the brink
And when his money’s gone,
She’ll leave him in the gutter,
It’s such a shame.

Oh demon alcohol,
Sad memories I cannot recall,
Who thought I would fall,
A slave to demon alcohol.
