Featured song: "Hash Pipe"

"Hash Pipe" is the lead single and third track from Weezer's eponymous 2001 album, The Green Album.

"Hash Pipe" was the first single released from the band's long-awaited third album, Weezer, and the only SS2K-era song to make it onto the album (although "Dope Nose" and "Slob" were later released on Maladroit). According to an interview with Rivers Cuomo, the song was written on the same night as "Dope Nose" although, according to the Catalog O' Riffs, Dope Nose was written two nights before Hash Pipe. The story is that he took "a bunch of Ritalin and had like three shots of tequila", paced around for a while, then wrote both songs.

The lyrics for the song are about a "homosexual transvestite prostitute", according to an Entertainment Weekly interview with Cuomo from 2001. According to Cuomo, the label was very reluctant to release a song like "Hash Pipe" as the album's lead single. Said Cuomo, "They wanted something more straight-up. Man, it was a huge fight. I got up in a meeting with all the executives and I was screaming." The label wanted to release "Don't Let Go" instead, but Cuomo was adamant that "Hash Pipe" be the single.
