Dope Nose (2:17)

Cover of Maladroit

From Maladroit and 19 other releases

“Dope Nose” is the first single off Weezer’s fourth album Maladroit. It was officially released in 2002, though it had been performed live and in the studio during the band’s 2000 summer tour comeback after hiatus.

“Dope Nose” was said to have been written on the same night as the hit song “Hash Pipe” from The Green Album, although Rivers’ Catalog of Riffs suggests otherwise. A common belief is that frontman Rivers Cuomo had three shots of tequila and Ritalin moments before writing both songs. “Dope Nose” is one of the songs playable in the Playstation 2 video game Amplitude, developed by Harmonix. An interview in Electronic Gaming Monthly with the creators of the PlayStation 2 game Guitar Hero (also developed by Harmonix) mentioned the game’s early builds were based on “Dope Nose”.

The song’s official music video was directed by Marcos Siega.

During various live shows in 2005 and 2010, Weezer bassist Scott Shriner would perform lead vocals on the song.

The song reached #73 on the Triple J Hottest 100, 2002.
