"Dope Nose" is a song by American alternative rock band Weezer. It is the first single off the band'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 also appears in an episode of Monk, "Mr. Monk Goes to a Fashion Show", the Psych episode,"Romeo and Juliet and Juliet" and as a playable track in Guitar Hero: Van Halen. During various live shows in 2005, Weezer bassist Scott Shriner would perform lead vocals on the song.
Famous quotes containing the words nose and/or dope:
“And that laugh that wrinkles your nose touches my foolish heart.”
—Dorothy Fields (19041974)
“If you think dope is for kicks and for thrills, youre out of your mind. There are more kicks to be had in a good case of paralytic polio or by living in an iron lung. If you think you need stuff to play music or sing, youre crazy. It can fix you so you cant play nothing or sing nothing.”
—Billie Holiday (19151959)
