Chronic Cover Songs for 420: Routine Scheme Re-Create Cypress Hill's "Hits From the Bong"
Band interests on Facebook indicate that besides food, traveling, and The Simpsons, they favor "free drugs" and "sharing drugs." So, Cypress Hill is a likely choice for their 420 cover song. They, like in the original "Hits From the Bong," sample Dusty Springfield's "Son of a Preacher Man"; you hear the bubbling of the bong water and someone getting high. This is a totally punk interp of this homage to the girl we all love, Mary Jane. There's also a last-minute mention of Catherine Zeta Jones. You figure that one out.
