"Dope Nose" is the first single and second track from Maladroit.



"Dope Nose", along with "Hash Pipe" and "Slob", is one of the few Summer Songs of 2000 tracks to be fully recorded and released on an album. The song went through a slight metamorphosis during the Maladroit sessions, as its arrangement tightened up and became a more streamlined power pop tune.

Early mixes of the song were delivered to radio prior to the album's release, when Rivers Cuomo took it upon himself to distribute material from the album during its mixing/mastering process. At least two different versions of the promo went out, with different mixes of "Keep Fishin'" and this song. These versions featured backup vocals in different sections, or no backup vocals at all, and its original, fade-in intro - as opposed to the isolated riff that begins the LP version.

Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh

Debt on my head
Wasting time on my own
Sleep rescue me
Take me back to my home (Oh take me home)

For the times that you wanna go and
Bust rhymes real slow
I'll appear, slap you on the face and
Enjoy the show

Cheese smells so good
On a burnt piece of lamb (Piece Of What?)
Fag of the year
Who could beat up your man
