Rock Music: Drumbeat For Drugs?

Mike Jahn, New York Times Special Features Syndication, 3 January 1971

"If you're tired or a bit run down, can't seem to get your feet off the ground
Maybe you oughta try a little bit of LSD (only if you want to)
Shake your head, it'll rattle your brain
Make you act just a bit insane
Give you all the psychic energy you need
LSD, for you and me.
— 'The Acid Commercial'
