Guitarist Josh Homme appeared on the internet video mockery show Tosh.0 and performed an acoustic version with the artist of the viral video "what what in the butt".
Queens of the Stone Age is rumoured to be Kirk Hammett's favourite band.
During the Rock in Rio 2001 show, the bassist Nick Oliveri was arrested for going up to the stage naked, only with a bass guitar. In an interview he said: "Whoa people in Carnival here dance naked why I can't do the same?"
Queens of the Stone Age formed under the name Gamma Ray before the German power metal band Gamma Ray threatened to sue in 1997.
