In the 2004 video game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas a radio DJ states that he used to be in a band called Crystal Ship. This is most likely a reference to the song.

In the 1980s, there was a Doors tribute band called "Crystal Ship". The band was very popular in the NYC tri-state area. This could relate to the GTA reference.

In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template.

# 1 hit single?[edit]

Is that accurate that "The Crystal Ship" is a # 1 hit single. Probably just some vandialsm. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.209.205.225 (talk) 18:19, 8 September 2007 (UTC)


Drug Reference?[edit]

I asked several people and they agreed, unfortunately i have no sources to back up my claim. 'crystal ship' refers to an addiction. This becomes more apparent if you listen to the song 'Crystal Ship' by 'renegade masters', but that is besides the point. It goes like that: To leave the shore and to jump on the 'crystal ship', as you leave your life behind and surrender yourself to the addiction, and leave everything else behind. While one says 'jump off the boat before it's too late' refers to ending whatever habit you might have. While i found some references in the song to possible drug use ("Before you slip into unconsciousness", the reference to bliss, the love and the pain from discovering the novel pleasure of opiates) i can't find any other place to back up this theory. Is anybody on my side, and do you think we should possibly include this into the article? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.183.11.54 (talk) 05:12, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

That´s one way to look at it. I sense some references to a brothel or something like that. "The days are bright and filled with pain, enclose me in your gentle rain", the man lives a miserable life and the only happiness he gets in his life is when he visits the brothel later at night. Then most of the lyrics would indicate that it makes sense.--Albin H-L (talk) 17:06, 14 February 2010 (UTC)
