Powered by Newznab, DrunkenSlug has impressive site features and multiple flexible membership levels that do not require invitations from other members.


DrunkenSlug is a well-regarded NZB indexer among Usenet users because of their rich features, sizable community and their wide selection of NZBs. They have been around since 2013 and have made a name for themselves for being a reliable indexer and having a powerful server hardware that helps in giving the best service possible.


DrunkenSlug is currently closed for registration and they discourage users to contact them for invites.


To access the DrunkenSlug site, you should either have an invite or wait when registration is open for everyone. Their free account gives you 100 API hits and 5 NZB downloads per day. They have multiple paid membership levels that vary in NZB downloads and API calls depending on the plan you select.

Aside from their wide range of membership accounts, they also have privacy protection via SSL, access to their forums for all users, limited ads running on their site and integrations with SabNZBD, NZBGet, Sonnar and more.

DrunkenSlug has a retention of over 3000 days of binary with more than 50 newsgroups crawled, allowing them to build a large repository of NZBs.


The DrunkenSlug site works on the newznab plus platform, which allows automated indexing. They categorize NZB Files according to file type and each file type is further sub-categorized. And like other NZB sites, you can easily search for the files you are looking for through a search box on their upper right corner of the site.

Their website also has a forum section that is open even to free members. The DrunkenSlug forum has a very helpful community and would be very useful for new Usenet users.

Technical Details

In a month’s span, DrunkenSlug has an uptime average of 99.7% with an average response time of 774 milliseconds. Their excellent response time and uptime is due to their powerful server hardware which is a CPU E3-1245 8cores @ 3.40GHz, 32GB DDR3 2x2TB HDD RAID 1 with a dedicated backup server running daily backup.
