Stoned & Dethroned is the fifth album by the Scottish alternative band The Jesus and Mary Chain. After spending most of 1992 touring, including a slot on that year's Lollapalooza tour, the Mary Chain went into the studio in January 1993 with the notion of recording an acoustic album. For the first time since Psychocandy, JAMC recorded with an actual full band with Monti from Curve playing drums and touring bassist Ben Lurie. The recording took longer than planned, lasting the better part of a year. The album also features lead vocals from guests Shane MacGowan from The Pogues on "God Help Me" and Mazzy Star's Hope Sandoval, duetting with Jim Reid on "Sometimes Always," which was the album's first single.
