Weezer Hash Pipe 2.jpg

"Hash Pipe" is the debut single and third track from Weezer's self titled 2001 album, known as The Green Album. Released in 2001, it was the first single off the band's long-awaited third album, Weezer, 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 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. 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 due to copyright issues. more
