Hash Pipe" is a song by American rock band Weezer. Released in 2001, it was the first single off the band's third album Weezer (The Green Album), and the only one of the Summer Songs of 2000 songs to make it onto the album, although "Dope Nose" and "Slob" were released on Maladroit. According to an interview with Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo, "Hash Pipe" was written on the same night as the hit song "Dope Nose" off Maladroit.

Song written by Weezer. Lyrics; 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. Oh, come on and kick me Oh, come on and kick me Come on and kick me You've got your problems I've got my eyes wide You've got your big G's I've got my hash pipe

MTV wanted Weezer to change the title to "Half Pipe" for the video so they could appeal to the skateboard crowd and avoid the drug reference. Weezer refused, so MTV played the video with the word "Hash" obscured. They listed the title as H Pipe. Sumo wrestlers are featured in the video. Nine are real wrestlers; the other three are just fat guys  . I remember "Hash Pipe" off the Green Album in 2001 when I was in grad school. It was so cool with lotta airplay on college radio back then. Didn't know it was really about a transvestite prostitute until a girlfriend told me about Rivers' explanation.

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. Oh, come on and kick me Oh, come on and kick me Come on and kick me You've got your problems I've got my eyes wide You've got your big G's I've got my hash pipe. The band's record label did not want to release "Hash Pipe" as the first single, because of the song's content, so, the band had to fight for its release. The opening line, "I can't help my feelings, I go out of my mind", is taken from The Beatles' "You Can't Do That". Toto released their version of "Hash Pipe" in 2018, after Weezer had covered their song "Africa".

Ohhhh, I like to ride vert Ohhhh, I like to ride vert Ohhhh, I like to ride vert Ohhhh, You've got your shove-it Ohhhh, I've got my tailgrab Ohhhh, You think your the best Drop in the Half Pipe.

Well, it only took ‘em 20 years. The half-decade hiatus that Weezer started in 1996 after their epochal first two albums - and the sonically streamlined, emotionally neutralized third album they eventually returned with in 2001 - gave fans a case of Blue balls for which the band has never truly provided relief

Originally, Blue was to feature Jason Cropper on guitar, as on The Kitchen Tapes. However, after a falling out with the rest of the band and an expected baby on the way, Cropper abandoned the project.
