One of the bands that emerged from the California surf rock scene of the 1990s, which was led and popularized by Sublime, is called Slightly Stoopid. Bradley Nowell of Sublime discovered Slightly Stoopid and signed them to his label, Skunk Records, when the members of Slightly Stoopid were still in high school. There are a lot of similarities between the two bands’ sound and style, though Slightly Stoopid is more focused and less disorganized while maintaining a similarly high level.

Throughout their career, Slightly Stoopid have been outspoken advocates for marijuana, so it’s no surprise that their music has become synonymous with the summer, good vibes, and, yes, weed. Their old hits are still popular enough to keep them touring every summer, filling outdoor venues across the United States with all the local hippies who were born too late for what is honestly a very good time, despite the fact that they haven’t released anything really worth listening to since 2012. There isn’t much variation from one event to the next; basically, it’s a reggae concert in a field attended by a relaxed crowd. Your expectations will be met and then some at a live Slightly Stoopid performance. You can count on a fun get-together with music that’s easy on the ears and the stomach.

To paraphrase ang xem:Favorite mediocre album

Despite the fact that Slightly Stoopid has released 9 studio albums, the majority of their most well-known songs are actually from theirThe Whole Kit and Caboodle(2003), In orbit around the Sun (2005), or Chronichitis (2007). All of those albums, like Sublime, have always had a special place in the hearts of college dudes and stoners everywhere, and they’re perfect for blasting on the way to the beach with the windows down.

To be honest, despite having as many albums as Wilco or Radiohead, Slightly Stoopid are not as talented musically. However, they have no intention of playing on that field. It’s clear that Slightly Stoopid are talented musicians and do their best to entertain with their music, as evidenced by the following set list.

Take a listen to the top 10 Slightly Stoopid songs below.

We begin our countdown of the best songs by Slightly Stoopid with “Ocean,” a laid-back jam that gently drifts along to the accompaniment of saxophone and harmonica. Your recent journey to the pier on a skateboard was a triumph. So, you’ve got your headphones, it’s a clear night, and you’re going to sit there and stare at the stars. Like the song implies, the ocean could also be a place.

In addition, Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead can be heard on a live recording of this song. Look at this.

The mood of “Mellow Mood” is spot-on with what the title suggests: a lazy late-July afternoon. You’re coming in barefoot from a day at the beach. You decide to avoid the shower in favor of basking in the salt air and relaxing with a beer on the porch until nightfall.

8. “This Joint” (Closer to the Sun, 2005)

The name “Slightly Stoopid” is synonymous with “weed songs” more than any other band. Assuming you can make out the words, “This Joint” is all about importing some California weed and rolling it up in a Philly. The song is propelled by a grimy hip-hop beat and a deep bass line, with a flow that could have been written by Bone Thugs-N-Harmony.

7. “Collie Man” (Everything You Need, 2003)

The struggles of life are addressed in “Collie Man,” along with the reassurance that, so long as you have music, you’ll be fine. Even so, you’re hoping to hear back from your collie man, as some of that sensi herb would make it much simpler to handle the current set of difficulties. The mix is cozy and Slightly Stoopid’s voice is soothing as he says all this.

One last tune fromIn orbit around the SunThe song “Open Road” is about leaving a city after a show has ended and moving on to the next one while missing a lover back at home. While on the road, “Open Road” is a promise to be kept regardless of whether or not your lover will be there to greet you when you return.

5. “No Cocaine” (Slightly Not Stoned Enough to Eat Breakfast Yet Stoopid, 2008)

Slightly Stoopid’s “No Cocaine” is yet another weed song, but this time it goes a step further in its love for Mary Jane by condemning all other drugs. The message of “No Cocaine” is clear: if you’re going to experiment with drugs, experiment with marijuana and stay away from other drugs, you’ll be fine. As far as cocaine is concerned, the message of this song has Extra Chill’s full endorsement. Our advice is to avoid exposing yourself to the harmful effects of that material.

4. “Sweet Honey” (Everything You Need, 2003)

Infectious and irresistible, “Sweet Honey” is an uplifting pop song that will become your summer anthem. In comparison to the majority of the Slightly Stoopid discography, this song is airy and acoustic-driven, with less emphasis on bass. It’s debatable whether the lyricist is projecting his own distrust of the woman onto the woman he’s with, or the woman’s own distrust of him.

Slightly Stoopid’s “Closer to the Sun” is the anthem of those who, in high school, discovered the benefits of mind-altering substances during the warmer months. It has become a defining song for Slightly Stoopid and the alternative rock subgenre that the band pioneered. In sum, “Closer to the Sun” is a slap in the face.

2. “2am” (Chronichitis, 2007)

The man, as in the police, is harassing you at 2 o’clock in the morning, according to the lyrics of “2am,” a classic Slightly Stoopid party song. They’ll start knocking on your door at 2 a.m., 3 a.m., and 4 a.m. because they know you’re hiding a lot of marijuana inside. Put “2am” on your playlist if you’re throwing a summertime outdoor party because the sax is tasty and the bass is hot.

1. “Wiseman” (Live & Direct: Acoustic Roots, 2001)

The song’s title refers to the contrast between the wise man, who recognizes his own foolishness, and the fool, who is convinced he is the wise one. In addition to the acoustic version onIn its Raw and Unfiltered Form: Acoustic Rootsalong with the variant onIn other words, everything you requireconsistent with the quality of the album as a whole. In “Wiseman,” from their album of the same name, the singer-songwriter opts for an acoustic delivery.Actual and Unfilteredprovide a lot of room to chill out in your own way and is the best song by Slightly Stoopid. Even if you don’t like the genre as a whole, you might be able to find something to like in “Wiseman,” which is surprisingly introspective for a band that otherwise made mostly pot-smoking party songs.
