Special K is a single by alternative rock band Placebo, taken from their third album. The song has many drug references: the "special K" in the title refers to the drug ketamine and lines in the song such as "just like I swallowed half my stash" and "I fall down…hit the ground" refer to drug stashes and withdrawal.
