Playlist: Psychedelic rock for sick vibes

There are hundreds of sub-genres of rock music, but none are as trippy as psychedelic rock. 

The soundtrack for the hippie movement in the '60s, psychedelic rock is inspired by the hallucinogens and psychedelics that had begun spreading across America. Psychedelic songs reflect the feelings of being in a drug-induced state and detached from reality. Electric guitar, crazed sound effects and extended improvisation made the genre explode in popularity, although only for a short while. 

Take a listen and groove to the pioneers of psychedelic rock, such as The Doors, Cream and Jimi Hendrix.
