The Queens of the Stone Age have released the full stream of their recent Lollapalooza set, and it’s worth a watch. Maybe two. Aw, whatever, we’re still watching it and it’s awesome.
Audiences may not know exactly how to pronounce Josh Homme’s name, but they do know his songs inside and out. Old favorites such as “No One Knows”, “Burn the Witch”, and “Sick, Sick, Sick”, all played near the start of the set, were chanted back by an enthusiastic crowd. Oh, and we don’t just mean lyrics – the crowd actually freakin’ scat sang the riffs during “Burn the Witch” and set opener “No One Knows”. No foolsies, check it out below.
QOTSA have a well-deserved reputation as a brilliant live band. Homme’s deadpan, profane brand of humor is effective as ever. Selections from their newest album, Like Clockwork were also on display. Lead single “My God is the Sun” and other songs, such as offbeat rocker “If I had a Tail”, shone alike.
