I have heard the term many times but am not sure which bands fall into this catagory. In my day stoner music was the Floyd, Bob marley, the dead and Phish but it seems now that Stoner rock is its own sub genre. SO what is it?

People consider Queens of the Stone Age as Stoner Rock, but I don't think the band itself likes being labeled that.

I've heard people call it desert rock. Josh Homme's old band Kyuss are definitly stoner.

Stoner rock is anything that lots of stoner listen to. Like you mentioned the dead and Phish, alot of stoner rock is jam bands, but also odd bands like Primus attract alot fo stoners.
Fender Standard American Stratocaster

Wiki Say: "Stoner rock and stoner metal are interchangeable terms describing sub-genres of rock and metal music. Stoner rock is typically slow-to-mid tempo, low-tuned, and bass-heavy.[1] It incorporates elements of psychedelic rock, blues-rock and doom metal into a more repetitive and riff-centred style. Other common traits include melodic vocals and 'retro' production.[2] The genre emerged during the early 1990s and was pioneered by the Californian band Kyuss.[3]"

There's a big Stoner Rock thread in the Modern Rock forum.

Indeed, please check that thread out.

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.
