I've been interested in writing Stoner Rock for a while know, and while I know some of the features of it, i.e. a Mid to Slow tempo and a repeating riff through out, it can't be that simple, what else am I missing in stoner rock?
All I want is for everyone to go to hell...

Depends - it's a pretty wide subgenre really. What sort of thing are you talking about? Kyuss/Sleep etc?

Look at Sublime's What I Got. Couldnt be much simpler. Very easy rhythm and like two chords and a little solo.

Alternatively, get wrecked and play what you think sounds fun(ny).

A bit part of stoner rock/metal is simply the sound. Big, fuzzy, downtuned guitars and basses are a big defining feature. I've found that using a bit of a swing rhythm to get that "rolling" sound is a nice trick as well.

Metalheads are the worst thing that ever happened to metal.

Listen to some Eyehategod and Electric Wizard, dude.

Then get trashed and write some riffs.

Stoner rock is just normal rock played by stoners. There might be a lyrical theme about hallucinations, but that can be faked pretty easily.

Write music sober

Play music stoned
