The Top Ten

1
No One Knows
Great song, a poppy melody added with insanely intense hardcore drumming by legend dave grohl make it one of the greatest songs of all time

sharty

this song has a great rhythm to it.

2Go With the Flow
This is one of the only songs I can listen to repeatedly and not get tired of. The drum rhythm is amazing and makes the song sound very epic--the guitar has a very unique and cool sound, too.
Awesome song. Video was amazing, guitar sounds too good and drumer did a great job. Vocalist was great. Go with a flow song sounds better than the best
The best love song ever written... and the truest.

It rocks hard and is deep in it's meaning. The beat is steady and sticks in your mind forever.

3I Appear Missing
Desert Rock at it's finest. Any true QOTSA fans will recognize this as their best song. This is by far their dreariest, deepest, and most enchanting song yet. I have heard this song over fifteen times and am still being blown away by it. No One Knows is bad-ass, but this... This is a masterpiece. 10/10
If you didn't know this by now, there's no helping you. Best song on the new album.
Unbelievably deep, poignant, more layers than Shrek's onion. Incredible songwriting. When listened to you genuinely feel like you're listening to the greatest musicians in the world playing a song they spent 50 years writing.

4Song For the Dead
DRUMS! This song kicks so much ass. I love to play this on guitar and I love listening to it. Josh Homme and Dave grohl. This record is so tasty, whoever loves this album has to check out Them Crooked Vultures
The start of this song makes it - Grohl is INCREDIBLE! The venom that the band play with in this song makes it. It truly is one of the best songs on the album and a song that I continually go back to when listening to QOTSA. Listen to it on your way into work and you feel like a million bucks!
If you've seen it performed live, you understand. That's all I need to say. If you haven't then be sure to

5Little Sister
the drums sounds addictive in this music. there's no way you can't like it.
Jam block sounds sweet and awesome vocals from josh this is their best hit by far no competition
I love the guitar parts and the melody is awesome

63's and 7's
Great! I was between go with the flow and this! Era vulgaris is the best album! I really do like this song!
I love no one knows, but 3's and 7's got my vote because of the incredibly simple but awesome guitar riff. Also, I don't really like go with the flow and believe this should definitely be ahead of it.
I've tried and tried to get other people to listen to QOTSA, but they all HATED 'No One Knows. " Anybody who actually started listening to them only did after hearing 3's ^^ 7's.

7In My Head
WHAT?! IN MY HEAD in 14 th place?... It should be in the top tens...
This is one of the few songs that mean so much to me. I get a feeling I can't explain when I listen to it.
This music is great! I can't stop listening to it

8The Lost Art of Keeping a Secret
I love the queens, and this is my favorite of their songs. They seem to have a love rock n' roll, they pay homage to it one moment and tear it apart next.
Easily there best track and I would say Rated R is their best album.

One of the best tracks of that decade and in recent times. Very Under rated in my opinion.
Listen to sample

9Make It Wit Chu
Defines the "roll" of rock and roll. Definitely an amazing song that absorbs your entire mind into it and you lose your self in it. All the keyboards, guitars, vocals, drums mashed together to make a masterpiece
in a moment of euphoria I downloaded their entire catalague. I already knew and loves their hits like no one knows and little sister. After repeated listen make it with chu is a total masterpiece. The laid back vocals, the hypnotizing rhythm guitar, a perfect drum tracks and the improvise solos just makes it for me.
I can listen to this song over and over and over and...

10You Think I Ain't Worth a Dollar, But I Feel Like a Millionaire
Killer Song! The nicks vocals are very powerful, and the guitar riff are simple, but amazing!
Is that Dave Grohl knocking on the door? Well, open WIDE - because from those first few seconds, this is an awesome, rocking' song!
One of the best driving rock songs I've ever heard. Reminiscent of 'Song 2' by Blur.

11Song for the Deaf
Creepy and awesome, the bass guitar and the guitar, drums, and homme vocals are excelent! Its a great song

12First It Giveth

This song is so cool its an awesome drug songs and the lyrics are awesome! You really shouldn't miss this song its off Songs for the Deaf and its probably the best song on that album

Listen to sample

13Feel Good Hit of the Summer
awesome stuff really, the real statement of the genious in the simplicity of Qotsa's songs, they're are ridiculously good but keep it ridiculously simple compared to a lot of stuff out there, thats why I love stoner, its all about the "wave" of the song, playing the genre urself only makes it much better =P heads up, in two years time my stoner band is gonna open for Josh at glasto!
This song should be so much higher than 13th! Great catchy song! Easily my favourite qotsa song!
Listen to sample

14Sick, Sick, Sick
"No One Knows" is easily number one, but I know that this song is a very closer second.

There is nothing else in the world like it!
Man, it's pretty upsetting to see such an amazing song so low down on this list. This deserves to be in at least the top 10.
I would kill hordes of zombies with this song!

22I'm Designer
This song has the perfect balance of an awkward yet catchy riff, and on top of that it has just awesome lyrics. Some say it's not their best song.. Counterproposal: I go home and jerk off.

Really underrated song. One of my favourites.
This is the good one, it should be higher
My favorite song ever by any band!

25Better Living Through Chemistry
This song is wonderful... It puts you in a trance... This is not a typical song by them, it's very unique to queens and brings something new to their collection of music.
Come on people! Play it on guitar and you'll fall in love with this song. Great song great song. Bring this to the top and slap everyone in the face who doubted.
Seriously? Seriously!? Not even top ten? This is the kinda tune that elevates a 'rock' band to something so much more.

Drum drum... Drum drum
Bloody good song that is very catchy, could listen to it all day.

This and 'No One Knows' go very well together.

27Auto Pilot
Super cool tune, mixing the driving quality of their first album with the growing melodic side of Rated R, just a great vibe song
This at #33 and God Is The Sun at #31?! They should be top 5.
A LOT of idiots with bad taste in music..
Awesome song! The beat and the rhythm are very cool! CanĀ't stop listening! Love it!

28Hanging Tree
No one likes this song? I believe this song is one of their best because of the awesome bass and the almost epic kind of feel to it. I think this song deserves to be at the top of this list for sure.
The best song ever
Listen to sample

29Everybody Knows That You're Insane Listen to sample

30Mosquito Song
Should be number one. Like nothing ever written before. Pure originality in ever aspect. Lyrics, orchestra, singing, everything about this song is just perfect. One of my all time favourites in any genre.
A beautiful piece of music. The orchestrated instrumentals creates a very unsettling mood, perfectly suited to the song. Art at it's finest.
Listen to sample

31The Fun Machine Took a S*** & Died
It would be as popular as song for the deaf and song for the dead if it had a proper release, but they kept losing the track. Must listen, this song is amazing from start to finish!
This song is absolutely amazing. There is no doubt that it is underrated and deserves to be much higher on this list.
This song should be top 5 definitely

32You Can't Quit Me Baby
There needs to be more songs in the top ten from the Queens' first album. Not the least of which is this song. Very catchy.
This song is so intense. It hypnotizes you the whole way through.

33Turnin' On the Screw
Awesome riff, awesome beat, awesome feel, awesome everything! My absolute favorite qotsa song.
Listen to sample

34My God Is the Sun
If you are a truly a QOTSA fan, this should be at the top with No One Knows, one of their best songs and one of the best rock songs ever!... Like Clockwork 2nd best album only behind Songs For The Deaf.
The BEST song of their new album. All day I can't get it out of my head. The main riff of the song in addition to Homme's voice absolutely hynotizes me. This deserves to be at least in the top five of Qotsa's best songs made untill now.
I can't believe that this is so low down. Its easily worthy of the top 5.

35Fairweather Friends
Love this song, reminds me of A Brave New World from Jeff Wayne's Musical War of the Worlds.
This should be higher on the list... I mean Dave and Elton John... Great sound and lyrics
Listen to sample

36In the Fade
This song is just beautiful. The chorus is so dense and satisfying. Lanegan and Homme's vocals work so well together and the bass and guitar fit together brilliantly. Half of the top 10 have nothing on this song.
Smooth, real, and a true tale of self-loathing. It's a real moody song, but gets you bumpin', for lack of a better expression. The bass is rolling, the guitar is light and dances behind the smooth beat, and the song makes you mosh and want to cry simultaneously. You live till you die.
Good Lord...62nd?! It must be some sort of sick joke for this song to be so far down the list. Top ten for sure. Brilliant song in just about every way. Beautifully layered and never sounds exactly the same twice (if that makes any sense).

37Into the Hollow
A very underrated song, yet one of their best.
Shows a side of Homme rarely heard. This song does great justice to his vocal range.
It's the sound that Queens of the Stone Age was born to create! It's from Era Vulgaris and just sounds so smooth. You can listen to it so many times over without getting sick of it.

43God Is On the Radio
Amazing breakdown and solo with a catchy verse and chorus. A great listen on a great album. It is a very underrated song that should be given more credit.
SO COME BACK ANOTHER DAY -- BEST PAUSE EVER -- AND DO NO WRONG. Amazing soloing on this song.
I know that god is in the radio, checking the station.
Listen to sample

44Misfit Love
This songs introduction is perfect. then it slowly progresses and has an incredible payoff ending like "my designer", "leg of lamb", and "you would know".
Awesome dance tune with a great feel. Every single instrument compliments the others perfectly. The intro is out of this world. One of QOTSA's best tracks.
Check out the performance at the Henry Rollins Show. Wicked Tune.

45If I Had a Tail
Almost feels like I'm listening to the Rolling Stones' Gimme Shelter. Instrumental brilliance.
Instrumentally this song is fantastic, the way the synths, bass and guitar go together. Lanegan's backing vocals are ace too
Epic intro and details throughout including big thumps and guitar riffs

46Kalopsia
A true masterpiece in every way. The song illustrates the duality of life through masterful lyrics and evocative melodies. This theme is mirrored by what amounts to two songs beautifully arranged.

Such a good song.

55The Vampyre of Time and Memory
Dark... Takes the listener to a place where the layers of consciousness are peeled back ever so slowly with reckless abandon.

56Someone's In the Wolf
"No One Knows" is obviously number one, but this song needs to be in the top ten!

If you have not heard this song, you absolutely need to!

57White Wedding
QotSA version is actually quite good... and creepy.

58Never Say Never
What a great choice for a cover song! It felt as if they wrote it, yet when I compare it to Romeo Void's version, it still sounds like a completely distinctive and different song.

65I Sat by the Ocean
The guitar from the start of this song is simply amazing. This and Smooth Sailing (both from their new album) deserve to be in top 10! It doesn't beat No one Knows, 3's and 7s, In my head or Give it All from their previous albums, but they are amazing still
This song easily deserves to be in the top five. in my humble opinion, the best song off of their album, incredibly catchy and reeks of crunchy, melodic, homme-esque riffs. One of the few songs that gets replayed once I hear it.
Love LOve love LOVE! Listen to it every night!
