Baxter’s “420” Attic, Black Sabbath “Sweet Leaf” (Video)
Seemed like a fitting selection for the Attic on this 420 holiday. The song is obviously about pot and makes no attempt to hide the fact.
The band got the name from a pack of Irish cigarettes that said "It's the sweet leaf". The band took it from there and wrote the song together.
The coughing at the beginning is Tony Iommi coughing after a bong hit.
The guitar riff is taken from Zappa's "Hungry Freaks,Daddy"
Enjoy your 420 and remember that tomorrow is allegedly National Drug Test Day, but if you're working from home, what the hell? Spark one up!
