I turned the radio on this morning because I was too lazy to plug in my iPod and was pleasantly surprised to hear "Go With the Flow" by Queens of the Stone Age. It felt like ages since I'd last heard that song. I also had the sudden urge to play it on Rock Band. I then recalled how my friend (hi Narek!) had sent me "Mosquito Song" (you might have to scroll down and click on the song) and remembered how much I like it. True story.
Favourite Part: The heavily orchestrated part starting around 3:05. Sounds almost Medieval.
I decided to read up on the band a little bit and discovered they're from Palm Springs. Honestly, I never imagined a band would come out of that place. Or anything good for that matter. I also discovered that they're often referred to as "stoner rock," which is totally lame. Luckily front man Josh Homme seems to think so himself and has this to say:
"The term sucks. The only element of the audience I want to get rid of is the shirtless, sweaty, maxi-mullet jock dudes. We want sex to bleed into the music. At our shows, we want to see half boys and half girls in a utopian world, dancing and drinking."
