Hashpipe - Weezer (3:06)
"Hash Pipe" is a song by American alternative rock band Weezer. Released in 2001, it was the first single off the band's long-awaited third album, Weezer (The Green Album), and the only one of the SS2K The Summer Sessions songs to make it onto the album, although "Dope Nose" and "Slob" were released on Maladroit. According to an interview with Weezer front man Rivers Cuomo, "Hash Pipe" was written on the same night as the hit song "Dope Nose" off Maladroit. The story goes that Rivers took "a bunch of Ritalin and had like three shots of tequila," paced around for a while, then wrote both songs. The song was inspired by a male transvestite prostitute known for rambling to people in Santa Monica, California. Weezer drummer Patrick Wilson is featured on the cover of the song's CD single holding a pack of Natural American Spirit cigarettes that has been blurred out. Since late 2001, the band has played the song live with a reworked guitar solo that no longer follows the verse melody. The primary melody of the song has similarities to both Fantasy by Aldo Nova and Kiss Me Deadly by Lita Ford.
