This one has been driving me nuts for years. In 2001 Weezer released its long awaited follow up to Pinkerton. The opening melody of the first single “Hash Pipe” immediately conjured Lita Ford’s 1988 hit “Kiss Me Deadly” which was not much of a surprise considering Cuomo’s hair metal roots. Three years later No Doubt’s Gwen Stefani released “What You Want?”. Once again there’s that descending melody.
