In the history of rock and roll, there have been plenty good songs that caution against drug use; but they are usually about the more commonly abused drugs like cocaine, heroine, or LSD. This one about bath salts strikes me as odd.
“Bath Salts” by the highly suspect named band, Highly Suspect , may not be as rock ‘in to me as “That Smell” or “The Needle and The Damage Done”, but at least it’s not an anthem promoting drug use like ” Magic Carpet Ride”. It certainly doesn’t celebrate the use of “bath salts”; the drug blamed for turning people into flesh eating zombies a couple of years ago; which I guess is what the video is suggesting.
I am sure if I looked hard enough I could find songs against the use of crystal meth, spice, or ketamine; but I did not search this one out, I actually heard it on the radio. I see it has over a million views on YouTube, so I guess that makes it a minor hit.
It’s not that bad of a song, but I doubt people will be listening to it 30 years from now. If they are…god help us all.
