8. "Who's Got the Herb?" - Human Rights (HR)
Speaking of punk rock... Singer HR's roots-reggae side projects still have the edge he had with his other, more hardcore band, Bad Brains. This song has since been

The song pretty much speaks for itself: If The Man keeps effing with the herb plants, the herb planter is going to burn down The Man's crops of sugar cane, corn and anything else they feel like burning down.

Barrington Levy wrote a lot of songs referencing ganja, and he's still around singing them to this day. Literally. Mr. Levy is performing this week at City Hall along with Giant Panda Guerrilla Dub Squad.
