    I'll keep it clean and just show the back of the album.

    Yep. The greatest.

    Black Sabbath's Paranoid needs to be near the top of the list.

    According to Wikipedia stoner rock or stoner metal is a rock genre that combines elements of heavy metal and/or doom metal with psychedelic rock and acid rock.

    A few notable stoner rock bands are Black Sabbath, Kyuss, Queens of the Stone Age, and Clutch.

    Oh yeah, that's a good one.

    It's simply just not possible to play "Grendel, Snowman" too loud.

    I haven’t touched weed in many years, but if I were to, I would listen to Hanatarash 3.

    Clutch's Blast Tyrant is a classic.

    I think a case could be made for the first 4 Black Sabbath albums being the blueprint for Stoner/Doom rock.
    I really dig a lot of the new(er) Stoner-type bands that are from the old Sabbath mold.

    Oh, I thought this would be about albums that were excellent when you were stoned.

    As you were.

    Can't argue with Volume 4 or Blast Tyrant. I would add Corrosion of Conformity - Wiseblood, Deliverance and America's Volume Dealer. Take your pick.
