Sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll. It's in many ways the enduring holy trinity of pop music. Like it or not -- we're not advocating anything -- drugs are responsible for lots of great songwriting. So every Friday in August, we're going to take a look at the impact of drugs on popular music. It's Drug Month.

Today's drug will help you lose weight, study for a test, and maybe cause your teeth to fall out. That's right, we're covering amphetamines! Use with caution and don't mix with caffeine or alcohol. And make regular trips to the dentist, which is an especially fun thing to do after you've been awake for two days straight.
