I get what he's saying: when a band is so good, you can be disappointed (or even hate) some of their songs.

Now, for the opinion: "Hash Pipe" is fantastic.

I don't think any other song accurately captures that "I'm driving around at night with tinted windows, up to no good" sound the way that song does.

There are a few bands where I'd apply Fallon's logic. Alkaline Trip is definitely one: they have such a solid discography up until Crimson. Fun is another, but I suppose on a smaller scale because they just have that one flawless record. Scary Kids Scaring Kids have a fantastic EP, and then a series of forgettable full-lengths. Senses Fail, too -- they're sloppy and uninteresting, but they capture a sound really well with their debut EP. Saosin is another one, but that's a whole different band, really, and doesn't really apply here. I certainly adore the first few Weezer albums, but Rivers has no filter and turns out way too much output that is subpar these days.

There's not many bands where I find myself loving/hating, but it does happen.

This is a cool feature, I'd like to read more. The AV Club rules.
