You'll be wanting the punk classic Too Drunk To **** by Dead Kennedys then (NSFW lyrics)

By the way my top 5 alcohol related songs would be:

Red Red Wine - Tony Tribe - 1969
Drinking In LA - Bran Van 3000 - 1997
Gin & Juice - Snoop Dogg - 1993
Whisky In The Jar - Thin Lizzy - 1972
Happy Hour - The Housemartins - 1986
