Top Queens of the Stone Age Songs

The Contenders: Page 2XW

21The Sky is Fallin'

Best song, Heavy guitar with beautiful melody ("Close your eyes and see the sky is falling" part) makes this their best song

22The 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.

Top 5 for sure, would be there if they'd actually released it properly

This song should be top 5 definitely

23You 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.

Best bass line ever. The live from Over The Years (YouTube it) is, after a decade, still the best thing I've ever heard.

24Auto Pilot

This at #33 and God Is The Sun at #31?! They should be top 5.
A LOT of idiots with bad taste in music..

My best favorite! Can't believe is so low in the list

Super cool tune, mixing the driving quality of their first album with the growing melodic side of Rated R, just a great vibe song

25Smooth Sailing

Great song...love the guitar parts and the lyrics are amazing!

Funky! Awesome iconic riff that I'm surprised hasn't been done before, epic! Homme in falsetto is also welcome!

Awesome song I would put it in their top 5

26Hanging 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.

27Someone'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!

28Mosquito Song

A beautiful piece of music. The orchestrated instrumentals creates a very unsettling mood, perfectly suited to the song. Art at it's finest.

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.

Whoa! Feeling depressed never felt so worth while!

This should be higher on the list

29God 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.

30Better Living Through Chemistry

I can not believe this song is not in the top ten one of the grooviest intros ever and live, the solo in the middle is incredible, I haven't listened to no one knows in years but this song is still on my playlist along with a lot of gems on songs for the deaf. Seriously kids songs for the deaf is the greatest rock album of all time highly invest sitting through and listening to that whole thing QOTSA are highly underrated don't believe what people say are good songs every queens fan I've ever talked too has vastly different favorites

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.

Why is this so low? That's their best song. Roll your No one knows far away and dig more on their others stuffs.

31I 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.

Best song by far, so emotional and the riff is amazing!

Amazing song how is it not at least in the top 5

33Kalopsia

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.

34Burn the Witch

I love this song. Its simple beat and bluesy guitar make it one of the most relaxing, and somewhat horrifying, tracks they have ever written. This album rocks, check it out

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

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

Burn the Witch... Burn and Ash to Bones

35Gonna Leave You

Fab song. Really catchy chorus, smooth guitar melody and nicks vocals on this tune are pretty damn great. It's QotSA surf rock!

36The BronzeV1 Comment
37I Think I Lost My Headache

One of the best Queens' songs In my opinion. It lures you in with really weird and awesome guitar melody, and then the amazing riff kicks in and it's fantastic. Also love the vocals, the slide guitar, the keyboard and the 2 minute brass outro witch still wakes me up in the middle of the bloody night

38Era Vulgaris
39How to Handle a Rope
40If I Had a Tail

This song just makes you want to move, all the while feeling a sinister vibe. Love it so much. Powerful Lyrics. "Expensive holes to bury things"

Almost feels like I'm listening to the Rolling Stones' Gimme Shelter. Instrumental brilliance.

Epic intro and details throughout including big thumps and guitar riffs

Are you kidding me? This song deserves to be at the top three
