Favorite Queens of the Stone Age ‘Songs for the Deaf’ Song – Readers Poll
On Aug. 27, 2002, Queens of the Stone Age released ‘Songs for the Deaf,’ the album that would catapult them from aspiring buzz band to full-on radio domination. This Readers Poll asks you to name your favorite ‘Songs for the Deaf’ song.
While Queens of the Stone Age has always been led by Josh Homme, the lineup surrounding him has always been somewhat flexible. In this situation, Homme has perhaps his most star-studded lineup to date with longtime cohort Nick Oliveri handling bass duties, Dave Grohl signing up to play drums and Screaming Trees‘ Mark Lanegan handling keyboards and guitar. There were also a variety of guests including Eleven duo Alain Johannes and Natasha Shneider, Ween’s Dean Ween, Masters of Reality’s Chris Goss, A Perfect Circle’s Paz Lenchantin and more.
Song-wise, Queens of the Stone Age delivered the two staples that would be on everyone’s playlist for years to come — ‘No One Knows’ and ‘Go With the Flow.’ But the album also features such standouts as ‘You Think I Ain’t Worth a Dollar, But I Feel Like a Millionaire,’ ‘First It Giveth,’ ‘Six Shooter,’ ‘Hangin’ Tree,’ ‘Gonna Leave You,’ ‘God Is in the Radio’ and ‘Mosquito Song’ among others. We’ll also include the bonus cover of Ray Davies‘ ‘Everybody’s Gonna Be Happy’ as well.
