Snortin' Whiskey (also sometimes referred to as "Snortin' Whiskey, Drinkin' Cocaine") is a blues-rock song written by Pat Travers and Pat Thrall. It was originally recorded by the Pat Travers Band, and released on the album Crash And Burn in 1980 on the Polydor label and also as US single the same year. The song was an instant hit, and reached the number one position on request lists at numerous FM radio stations in the United States in 1980. It gained popularity in the United Kingdom and Germany as well. It became one of Pat Travers' signature songs, and is still a crowd pleaser at Travers concerts to this day. The success of "Snortin' Whiskey" helped to propel the Crash And Burn album to the number 20 position on the Billboard Magazine's Pop Album Chart, making that particular recording Pat Travers' highest-charting release. The song was most recently featured in the 2004 Golden Globe-winning movie Sideways
