Swimming Pools (Drank) – Kendrick Lamar
Off his acclaimed album “Good Kid M.A.A.D. City” from last year, this song became a radio hit and is about drowning sorrows by drinking. Keep your eye on Kendrick–Lady Gaga visited Pitchfork Festival last summer to see him!

Gin and Juice – Snoop Dogg
The quintessential drinking song. As the title indicates, the song features lyrics about being heavily inebriated with gin and juice (shocker!) and it’s also one of Snoop’s most beloved songs!
Tubthumping – Chumbawomba
Bringing it back to the 90’s! “He drinks a Whiskey drink, he drinks a Vodka drink. He drinks a Lager drink, he drinks a Cider drink. He sings the songs that remind him of the good times, He sings the songs that remind him of the best times.”
