Top Queens of the Stone Age Songs

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. - lucario411

There are no doubts about it! No One Knows it's just genial! One of the best tracks ever made in all music industry!

Just love it

2 Go 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.

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.

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

It's their best, catchy as well... - Ananya

3 Song 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

Unparalleled

4 Little Sister

the drums sounds addictive in this music. there's no way you can't like it.

Don't know why, but the melody of this song suddenly pops up and runs through my head for at least an hour or two every single day - and it has for months now - I LOVE it!

Jam block sounds sweet and awesome vocals from josh this is their best hit by far no competition

Love the Drums! Great hook! Great everything<!

5 I 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.

The deepest song josh has penned... on A Song for the Deaf can hold a candle. haunting... stunning...unforgettable

6 3's & 7's

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.

Great! I was between go with the flow and this! Era vulgaris is the best album! I really do like this song!

My favourite song of all time. Should be number one in my opinion. The lead riff is so energizing and catchy. They heavy guitars in this suit the rhythm perfectly

You can tell they had fun making this song. It's riff at the beginning is incredibly catchy. - courier28

7 First 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

This should be number 1. This is my favourite above No One Knows Go With The Flow and Everybody Knows that You're Insane

This is my favourite queens of the Stone Age song

8 You 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.

Went 110 on a 35 with this song

9 Song for the Deaf

Their best song. It blows me away every time I hear it. You can't predict what will happen next and the riff is just amazing

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

10 The 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.

I love the intro to the song and he verses

Pretty good song. This is by far their most beautiful and unique album and almost every song isn’t good but this one stands out from the rest of them so I think this should be way higher on the list. - CPhoenix442

The Contenders

11 In My Head

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.

WHAT?! IN MY HEAD in 14 th place?... It should be in the top tens...

This music is great! I can't stop listening to it

This one deserve the top 3 for sure!

12 Make It Wit Chu

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.

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

I can listen to this song over and over and over and...

I cannot stop to listen it! It's so beautiful song, perfect rhythm!

13 Sick, 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!

14 My 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.

On of the best rock songs ever! Thank you so much for that masterpiece!

15 If Only

this song is very addictive... I love it!

Only found this when they reissued the first album, absolute gem...

Trippy, dark, and sexy. Josh Homme's voice is so seductive and psychedelic.

The best of their songs ever!

16 Avon

The drums sound like endless nameless by nirvana

17 Regular John

My favorite song ever by any band!

Glastonbury 2002. Best song ever.

It's so simple yet so perfect, plus my favorite guitar tone of all time

Best riff, love it. Easily their best song.

18 In the Fade

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).

Can't believe this is so low on the list, amazing pacing with great vocals and simple lyrics that make you want to sing along every time and feel the hopelessness and freedom this song brings to the table.

There is not a more unique song written by this artist. Just an amazing catchy rhythmic inspiring piece of art of pure justice to modern music.

Easily top 5!

19 Mosquito 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.

This should be higher on the list

Whoa! Feeling depressed never felt so worth while!

20 Feel 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!

Great base line at the start of the song

This song should be so much higher than 13th! Great catchy song! Easily my favourite qotsa song!

Nocotine valium vicodin marihuana extasis and alcohol - p393011

21 The 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

22 If 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

23 Mexicola

Had to vote for this, should have been higher. Not sure if it's there best song though.

Coolest bass intro ever written, awesome riff, typical solo and insane lyrics

Just absolutely amazing - the intro is breathtaking

That grimy bass intro is just killer!

24 Smooth 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

V 1 Comment
25 Someone'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!

26 Auto 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

27 ...Like Clockwork

The title track off the latest and GREATEST album... Homme and company never disappoint and continue to amaze.

This needs to be higher on the list... Seriously.
Such a good song.

Beautiful!

28 Hanging 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

29 Villains of Circumstance Villains of Circumstance

Love this song, one of the best from their new album and one of my all time favourites

30 The 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

31 You 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.

The best

32 God 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.

#47? No...way!

33 I 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!

One of my favourites, in my top ten

34 I Never Came

So many feels in this song.

This song is truly amazing. The lyrics are so clever and deep. beautifully sang. A piece of fine art.

35 Gonna 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!

36 Kalopsia

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.

37 This Lullaby
38 Another Love Song
39 Burn 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
Burn the Witch... Burn and Ash to Bones (8)
Drum drum... Drum drum

This is criminally low!
If anyone had properly appreciated this, it would be in top 15 by now

40 I 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

Weird, and fantastic at the same time!..

41 Era Vulgaris
42 The Way You Used to Do

Best song from the new album, prominent riff and addicting chorus.

43 Better 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.

44 How to Handle a Rope
45 Feet Don't Fail Me

Best song on this album besides "The Way You Used To Do."

Best riff and chorus of all time!

46 Domesticated Animals Domesticated Animals
47 Turnin' on the Screw

Awesome riff, awesome beat, awesome feel, awesome everything! My absolute favorite qotsa song.

48 Do It Again

Way to low should be in top 15 at least!

I would have put this in top 10 easy

Simply deserves first 5

49 Tension Head

Honestly the best song of rated R other than Auto Pilot sounds like it is the roots to Millionaire

50 Tangled Up In Plaid

Song is amazing. Should be way more popular

One of the most underrated in my opinion, and one of my favourites
