Often times you have heard through friends and urban legends of strange ways of getting high. Things like cough syrup, spray cans, alcohol tampons, and hand sanitizer are just a few examples. But during an appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show, former Stooges frontman Iggy Pop revealed a unique substance he used in an attempt to get high before going onstage.

“I tried spider webs, too,” says Pop. “Well, I tried to smoke them, but you know you’ve got to start somewhere.”

When asked if smoking spider webs was a pleasant experience, Pop responded, "No. No. They were harsh."
