    Oasis - 'Be Here Now'

    Oasis - 'Be Here Now'

    [ranking: 13]
    Though initially hailed as a success among fans and critics, Oasis' third album Be Here Now ultimately became more well-known for its association with excessive coke use. In hindsight, many deemed it less provocative than the band's previous two releases. Even guitarist Noel Gallagher ultimately called it "the sound of five men in the studio, on coke, not giving a f*ck."
    Most critics ultimately criticized the album for its numerous lyrical and musical flaws, and chalked their initial excitement up to lasting buzz from the peak of their career.
    "There were more hangers-on, constantly telling them they were the greatest thing. That tended to block out the critical voices," the band's former publicist, Johnny Hopkins, said.

    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 Beach Boys - 'Smile'

    The Beach Boys - 'Smile'

    [ranking: 10]
    By the time Brian Wilson began work on Smile, he was already deep into his usage, and his behavior had started to become extremely questionable. He created Smile in an effort to make an album of songs that fit the mold of his magnum opus "Good Vibrations," enlisting lyricist Van Dyke Parks to help create a collection of suites and intricate musical compositions. Wilson proclaimed the album would be "a teenage symphony to God" but the musician's erratic behavior derailed the sessions and the band abandoned the project.
    The Beach Boys released Smiley Smile, a stripped-down version of the sessions, in 1967 but the original recordings remained unreleased for years until ultimately it emerged in 2011 as The Smile Sessions.
    Wilson's habit and worsening mental illness led to both the creation of the album and the collapse of it - with Parks later telling The Guardian that he was "victimized by Brian Wilson's buffoonery." He added:
    It just got too much for me. It was an expensive decision for me not to continue my association with the most powerful artist in the music business at the time, but I made the only decision I could. I walked away from that funhouse.
    Wilson himself later recalled being so out of his mind during sessions for the album's "Elements" suite that he believed he was the cause of several fires in Los Angeles that broke out during the same time they were recording the suite's "fire" section.

    Primal Scream - 'Screamadelica'

    Primal Scream - 'Screamadelica'

    [ranking: 14]
    Primal Scream's groundbreaking 1991 album Screamadelica was influenced heavily by ecstasy, which the band discovered just as they began recording. Creation Records label head, Alan McGee, introduced Bobby Gillespie and the band to acid house music after he began taking ecstasy and immersing himself in the burgeoning style of dance music. 
    Gillespie said in an interview that ecstasy "opened everybody's minds" during the recording sessions for Screamadelica and described the first time he took the substance as a big influence on how he heard the sessions. "All of a sudden I'm listening to this record, turning the bass up, going, 'Oh! Ooh!'" he said.

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.
