  • Lyrics
  • Several of Hinder's early songs, including this one, were written primarily by lead singer Austin Winkler and drummer Cody Hanson. There's a touch of hedonism in many of these early tracks, and this one finds Winkler singing about getting high on marijuana and having sex with his girlfriend (apparently, the sex is better when he's high). Hanson told us that the majority of the songs on the band's first album Extreme Behavior came from his and Winkler's personal experiences. He elaborated by saying that, in those days, "we'd kind of throw elements of both of our lives into every song."
  • If you catch a whiff of the Aerosmith song "Dream On" in the intro to "Get Stoned," you're on the mark. Hinder drummer Cody Hanson acknowledges this and says the intro was written that way on purpose. In 2012, Hanson told us that Hinder was definitely influenced by Aerosmith and that the band wanted to pay tribute to them in one of their songs.
  • Before Hinder got a record deal, the band recorded a different version of this song that didn't contain an intro similar to Aerosmith's "Dream On." Drummer Cody Hanson told us that once the label got involved in the creative process, the intro to this song was one of the things they thought should change.

  • Taylor from Kelowna, CanadaI like Hinder.. but this song seriously kinda scares me, i like Better than Me and Lips of an Angel... but this 1 just scares me
  • Becky from Waukesha, Wieverytime i hear this song i think about how much it describes mine and my ex's relationship to a t. i love it i love it i love it.
  • Erica from Monroe, Miok first of all this song is not just about sex and drugs. if you really read the lyrics and listen to what he saying...he saying that he is in a abusive relationship with her and that when she is high with him shes not like that to him and the sex may be better too but it also make the realtionship better
  • Elizabeth from Peoria, IlThis song is more about a disfunctional relationship, than it is about smoking pot and having sex.
  • Tom from Anglesey, Uk, WalesActually, He says he thinks the Sex is better when she's mad at him - "...'Cause the Sex is so much better when you're mad at me"
  • Juan from El Paso, TxGetting ripped and banging you chic....no better topic for a straight ahead rock tune. With attitudes like this, Hinder will go down as one of the better bands to come around since Velvet Revolver. This band puts the likes of nickelback to shame.
  • Sammie from Boston, MaI love this song and I love the lead singers voice.
  • Kellyann from Bellefonte, Pahaha...this song rocks!
