About The Band
formed in 1996 Southern California by experienced rocker Joshua Homme after the dissolution of the band "Kyuss", Queens of
the Stone Age still stands to this day as one of the biggest and most awesome rock groups around. Created with the idea that
they wanted to be able to play anything without specific genre constrictions, the group focuses primarily on stellar rock
of all kinds while also infusing their music with a wide array of genres outside of this. After an initial EP, the group released
their self-titled debut album in 1998, an album that formed the foundation of the style of music that they would continue
to build upon in the coming years. It was only two years later in 2000 that their follow-up, "Rated R", hit the scene and
succeeded in growing the audience exponentially. It was after the release of two solid albums that Queens of the Stone Age
dropped their third album, "Songs For The Deaf", onto a growing audience that was feverishly anticipating a new album, and
upon receiving it were completely satiated. The album was both a commercial and critical success, sporting a slew of singles
that made their way through a multitude of charts. They have since released three more albums with the most recent being 2013's
"...Like Clockwork", all of which have proved time and time again that the group is more than capable of handling the rock
While the release of their self-titled debut album and "Rated R" were incredibly
strong efforts filled to the brim with original and awesome tunes, they group didn't find true mainstream success until the
released their third album, "Songs for the Deaf". Bringing in famous musician Dave Grohl on drums for recording and "Danzig"
drummer Joey Castillo for the resulting tour, Queens of the Stone Age hit it big like never before with an album that screamed
talent and touted an endless supply of hit singles such as "No One Knows" and "Go With The Flow". Finding their perfect spot
in the rock scene, they remain at the top of the list of great rock groups for almost any fan of the genre.
of the Stone Age Trivia
There has been much discussion among fans and critics alike as to how and why the group eventually
settled on the name "Queens of the Stone Age" as the name of their band, but it turns out that that wasn't their initial pick.
When front man Josh Homme was still a part of his band "Kyuss" in 1992, his then-producer had referenced them as being the
"Queens of the stone age", with that being something that stuck with him in the coming years. But when that band dissolved
and Josh was in the throes of naming his newest project, he originally picked the name "Gamma Ray" but was forced to change
it when the German group of the same name threatened to sue. So the group decided to go with the name that they did, sticking
with "Queens" instead of "Kings" as he said that that would sound much too macho.
