    The Rolling Stones - 'Exile On Main St.'

    The Rolling Stones - 'Exile On Main St.'

    [ranking: 2]
    The story of The Rolling Stones' classic Exile On Main St. is one full of excess and the use of controlled substances. Recorded in the basement of a French mansion rented by guitarist Keith Richards, the band surrounded themselves with dealers and users throughout the entire process. They even hired Jean de Breteuil, who was known as the "dealer to the stars," to supply extra-pure pink H from Thailand to the band and team. 
    Things got so bad that at one point, engineer Andy Johns found Richards passed out with a needle in his arm and blood splattered on the walls. Johns poked the guitarist to see if he was alive, and Richards immediately picked up a guitar and started playing. 
    Despite the heavy usage, the band managed to create an album that some view as a masterpiece. In addition, they maintained a "very, very loose" writing process, as singer Mick Jagger put it, along the way.

    The 15 Most Drug-Fueled Albums Ever Made

    [ranking: 4]

    Gorillaz - 'Gorillaz'

    Gorillaz - 'Gorillaz'

    [ranking: 15]
    Damon Albarn admitted years after the release of the debut Gorillaz album in 2001 that he and his partner Jamie Hewlett were often under the influence of H while creating the songs and cartoons for the groundbreaking project. 
    "I used to go to work and take [H] in the studio and then stop when I came home. That's why I say it's five days a week and two days off, and that's how I existed for several years," Albarn told British GQ, adding that he doesn't believe he would've been able to create something like Gorillaz unless he and Hewlett were in their "own worlds."

    The 13th Floor Elevators - 'The Psychedelic Sounds Of'

    The 13th Floor Elevators - 'The Psychedelic Sounds Of'

    [ranking: 7]
    The 13th Floor Elevators are a legendary band that didn't get their due when they should have. Formed by mentally ill genius Roky Erickson, the band's debut album The Psychedelic Sounds Of is both a crash course in psych rock and the first of its kind. The fascinatingly unique band featured both a violin player and a jug player.
    Psychedelic Sounds was released in 1966 and did fairly well commercially, but the band fell apart when their habits caught up with them.
    In 1968, four of the five band members were busted for cannabis possession, and Erickson got sentenced to 10 years in prison. He was acquitted of the charges by reason of insanity, but was forced to enter a mental institution where he underwent electroconvulsive therapy and emerged sicker than he was before. When arguing for his insanity, his lawyers claimed that Erickson had 300 bad acid trips that significantly affected his mental state. 

    Spiritualized - 'Ladies And Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space'

    Spiritualized - 'Ladies And Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space'

    [ranking: 12]

    Fleetwood Mac - 'Rumours'

    Fleetwood Mac - 'Rumours'

    [ranking: 6]
    Fleetwood Mac's reputation for dysfunction was almost as big as their reputation for indulging heavily in controlled substances and alcohol. Their massive album Rumours, the second to feature Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks, was quite accomplished with the help of coke - which the band allegedly took to stay awake and alert during marathon recording sessions. 
    It also masked the emotional problems happening between band members at the time, which included the divorce of Christine and John McVie, as well as the breakup of Nicks and Buckingham. 
    "You felt so bad about what was happening that you did a line to cheer yourself up," Nicks told Mojo. The substance was such a big part of the album that the band debated thanking their dealer in the liner notes.
    "I don't know if I would have written 'Songbird' had I not had a couple of toots of [coke] and a half-bottle of champagne and I just couldn't sleep, or written any of the songs that were on that album because I think we were all pretty loaded," Christine McVie recalled during an interview the BBC.

Great music has been influenced by everything from falling in love to breaking up and drugs - lots of it. For decades, illicit substances have played a major part in music and have had a significant influence on some of the greatest albums ever made. The '70s, in particular, was a big decade for controlled substances and excess, thanks to bloated album budgets and an insanely profitable music industry. Black Sabbath tried to name an album Snowblind in ode to their coke use, and many musicians were kicked out of bands for taking their usage a bit too far.

Even as the musical landscape changed dramatically over the years, there were still plenty of illicit substances to go around, from LSD and coke to ecstasy. Here are some of the most drug-influenced recordings in history.
