Hash Pipe (3:06)

Cover of Weezer (Green Album)

From Weezer (Green Album) and 40 other releases

“Hash Pipe” is a popular single by Weezer. Released in 2001, it was the first single off the band’s long-awaited third album, Weezer, and the only one of 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.

“Hash Pipe” is one of the band’s biggest hits, best remembered for its driving guitar melody, offbeat lyrical content, Cuomo’s falsetto vocals and the gang backup vocals of “whoa-oh-oh.” The song peaked at #2 on Billboard’s Modern Rock Tracks chart, #24 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and #16 on Billboard’s Canadian Singles Chart. The video for the song was nominated for Best Rock Video at the 2001 MTV Video Music Awards as well as being nominated for High Times magazine’s “Pot Song of the Year” in 2001 .

I can't help my feelings, I'll go out of my mind
These players come to get me 'cause they'd like my behind
I can't love my business if I can't get a trick
Down on Santa Monica where tricks are for kids
