White Rabbit was written by San Francisco-based singer Grace Slick while she was still a member of her original band, The Great Society. Upon joining Jefferson Airplane in 1966, she offered up White Rabbit while the band was recording their seminal second album, Surrealistic Pillow. The song became the band’s second biggest hit, peaking at on the pop charts. The song’s metaphorical drug references flew largely over the heads of radio censors, but White Rabbit did eventually end up on blacklists at several stations once its meaning became apparent.

White Rabbit" was written by Grace Slick, who based the lyrics on Lewis Carroll's book Alice In Wonderland. Like many young musicians in San Francisco, Slick did a lot of drugs. She saw lots of drug references in Carroll's book, including the pills, the smoking caterpillar, the mushroom, and lots of other images that are generally trippy.

Casady recalls the day Jefferson Airplane recorded White Rabbit: We recorded it out at Sunset and Ivar, in a huge room at RCA where they used to record A Hundred And One Strings. The room was massive, so we basically set up the instrumentation in the middle of this room and played it live onto four-track. Oddly enough, the two major US hits it spawned were both brought in by Slick from the Great Society: Somebody To Love, written by Darby Slick, made the top five in February 67; White Rabbit, meanwhile, very nearly didn’t make it onto the album at all. Grace had two songs she brought with her from the Great Society, says Casady.
