Murphy’s Law‘s “Quest for Herb,” is the 2nd best musical ode to marijuana.

Cro-Mags bassist Harley Flanagan wrote about the influence of the song in his recent memoir “Hard-Core: Life on My Own.” Flanagan says he and a group of friends including Murphy’s Law frontman Jimmy Gestapo had started a group called “The Church of Herb’s Quest”
“That was like our saying, our motto, the eternal quest for the burning bush,” Flanagan writes.
