The Velvet Underground's Lou Reed became famous for his debauched lifestyle, at one point quipping that he tried to quit drugs by drinking. One of his most famous songs is simply titled "Heroin." But by the 1980s he'd cleaned up his act. He even appeared in a 1989 "Rock Against Drugs" PSA stating, "Drugs. I stopped. You shouldn't start."
