Did you know that Weezer‘s 2001 single “Hash Pipe” was almost an Ozzy Osbourne song? During an interview with Guitar World, Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo said, “Once, I think it was in 2000, he [Osbourne] asked if I had any songs for him and I just happened to have written ‘Hash Pipe.'”

He added, “I sent it to him, but he didn’t end up using it. In another reality, it might be interesting to hear him singing that song.”


“Hash Pipe” was Weezer’s comeback song in 2001. It was the band’s first single in four years.
