Queens of the Stone Age at ACL 2013 (more by Tim Griffin)
QOTSA

Queens of the Stone Age made a solid comeback this year with ...Like Clockwork, an album which has ended up on many year-end lists, including NME, Rolling Stone, Paste, SPIN, Q, Mojo, Amazon and Rough Trade. We asked them to send a list of their favorite albums of the year. They're a big band, and their list mostly includes other big bands (and big solo artists), but it's also got a certain Jack White-approved compilation, and two relatively smaller artists, Earthless and Kurt Vile, so kudos to those guys for being QOTSA-approved. You can check out the full list below.

As discussed, Queens of the Stone Age will bring their tour to NYC on Saturday (12/14) at Barclays Center with The Kills. Tickets for that show are still available.

QOTSA's best of 2013 list below...

---

Queens of the Stone Age -- Top 10 Albums of 2013
Arcade Fire "Reflektor"
Arctic Monkeys "AM"
Paul McCartney "New"
Earthless "From The Ages"
David Bowie "The Next Day"
Nick Cave "Push The Sky Away"
Rise and Fall of Paramount Records 1917-1932
Savages "Silence Yourself"
Phoenix "Bankrupt"
Kurt Vile "Waking On A Pretty Daze"

@3:09

I've finally realized there's one douche on BV who constantly writes on EVERY single QOTSA post on this site.

Dude you say the same thing every post. We get it buddy. You hate QOTSA and Foo Fighters.

I don't understand why you're constantly comparing these two bands

Did Josh Homme beat you up in a bar fight?

Band fucking sucks. Get over it.
Josh Homme is not a bad-ass like you nerds like to jerk off thinking about and he forgot the lyrics to a Stooges song when onstage with the Asheton brothers. Inexcusable. Even despite Kyuss.

I'm pretty sure Homme is a BV commenter.

Posted by Anonymous | December 11, 2013 5:51 PM

Arcade Fire has seriously damaged the delicate minds of BV posters.

Who's mentioned anything about Homme being a bad-ass?

If you discredit a musician over a Stooges reference, you have serious issues. Stooges have had no impact on the music scene ever.

KYUSS was touring before they even graduated HS, this alone puts any argument on here to shame.

So quiet down and listen to your precious Arcade Fire and Grimes records. Keep going to shows where the band plays the same set-list every single show; year in and year out.

Posted by Anonymous | December 11, 2013 5:57 PM

@ 3:14 and @ 3:46 inferred that Josh Homme is some sort of fabled bad ass.

@ 3:14 and @ 3:46 are also probably Josh Homme.

Posted by Anonymous | December 11, 2013 6:02 PM

It's his fans who think he's a bad-ass (but yet need to defend this delicate flower).

You're right, Stooges have had no impact on rock n' roll. Absolutely correct.

Kyuss was good, that was my point, idiot.

I don't listen to Arcade Fire, dildo, I listen to music that actually (shudder) rocks.
And I go to shows where you don't have to buy a ticket ahead of time, with bands that aren't corporate stooges (oh no, those Stooges again!).

Queens of the Stone Age are like Tool for people who think they listen to metal, psych and/or garage rock.

Posted by Anonymous | December 11, 2013 6:12 PM

Do any Queens of the Stone Age fans listen to Hawkwind? Do they even know what a Hawkwind is?

Your GED paid off big time. You have some serious reading comprehension issues.

Why do you need to post about Foo Fighters on every QOTSA post?

One good reason please

Posted by Anonymous | December 11, 2013 6:13 PM

I'd be willing to bet that half the people who have commented on this thread own a Sleigh Bells album (digitally, of course).

Posted by Anonymous | December 11, 2013 6:14 PM

@6:14
Yes you're right. It's the guy who keeps bringing up The Foo Fighters every thread.

He listens to Sleigh Bells on the way to his underground 'rock' shows where apparently buying tickets ahead of time is the ultimate 'rock sin'(6:11)

6:11 You're a rock god tell us more 'rock' show etiquette.

Queens of the Blown Age are starter-kit rock for 12 year olds. Perfectly respectable as such, but for a grown-ass man? Embarrassing.

Anybody who can even bring themselves to type the words Foo jlicscijl should have their fingers cut off. You people have no shame, or discerning taste in music. It's disgusting. Reprehensible, even.

Not really a frat band, more like a LA guy who shops at Diesel band.

Anyone notice that Dave Grohl's neck has become wider than his head?

And he is chinless which is why he has an emo-neck-beard.

That Arcade Fire album is horrible
They are the new Radiohead. I just don't get it with either one of these hyped bands.

If they televised hipsters eating their own tails I'd definitely watch it. You smug, self-satisfied denizens of your Momma's basement are an endless source of giggles.
