Queens of the Stone Age are one of the definitive rock bands of the last decade, and a big favourite to readers in around these parts.
With news that they're about to enter the recording studio again this year, it seems like a good time to get a stoner-rock retrospective in place and rank their best songs to date.
This week's question is:
What is the best Queens of the Stone Age song ever?
QOTSA are one of the few bands who have a really solid list of hits on every single release, so it's going to be a tough call to find one winner. Who could forget "Rated R," a masterclass in writing pop songs with rock instruments. Then there's the hard-rocking "Songs for the Deaf" which featured Dave Grohl on drums, and their latest effort "…Like Clockwork" which topped our Top 10 Albums of 2013.
At the very least, this top 10 QOTSA songs playlist is going to be a fantastically loud mixtape for the weekend.
