Of all the bands borne of an obsession with ganja, Kottonmouth Kings epitomize the spirit of the 420 holiday with utter Orange County, white-boy swagger. From their apt moniker describing the phenomenon one experiences when smoking the devil's lettuce to their chill reggae/hip-hop rhymes meets punk ethos, Kottonmouth Kings were made to spark a way of life in the land of citrus. And they've been at it since the mid-'90s. Maybe there's a correlation between silly smoke and longevity.
