Top 10 Queens of the Stone Age Songs

The Top Ten
1 No One Knows No One Knows Cover Art

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

When it comes to awesome, this song takes the cake. Of any song. Ever.

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

Their only good song and it's a top song!

2 Go with the Flow Go with the Flow Cover Art

The Hard Rock feel nature of Homme is very open in this, typifies his work with QOTSA, great riffs superb drums, beats fit in brilliantly with the lyrics. 'She said id throw myself away, there just photos after all' cracking job boys.

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.

I can't really explain it, but I have this connection with this song. Its in my top 10 list of my favourite songs of all time. I just dno, I get taken places when this song plays.

Just an amazing song! It's in fact a really "simple song" with almost no variation, but that makes it all the more powerful! It's just a masterpiece!

3 I Appear Missing I Appear Missing Cover Art

This is the greatest song Josh has ever written. PERIOD. Everything about it is phenomenal. After the whirlwind of drums, performed by non other than Dave Grohl, the next half of the song is the best by far. The last 1:40 of the song will hit anyone straight in the heart.

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

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.

It's not just a perfect, very deep song. It's a composition. For me, an essence of what... Like Clockwork is about.
The outro with two guitars twisting around each other is just amazing, beautifully extended when played live.

4 Song for the Dead Song for the Dead Cover Art

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!

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

I know Dave Grohl and Homme are great in this song, but you got to give it up for the Vocals on this one.
Mark Lanegan gritty, awesome voice is what makes this one legendary

There's really just no question here. This song has everything. Grohl on drums KILLING IT, Lanegan, Oliveri, Homme all on vocals, just insanity.

5 Little Sister Little Sister Cover Art

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!

Love the Drums! Great hook! Great everything<!

I love it, but it needs more cowbell.

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

6 3's & 7's 3's & 7's Cover Art

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.

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

Simple, energetic song that I could listen to time and time again. Simple, catchy guitar riff and an overall teriffic flow!

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

7 You Think I Ain't Worth a Dollar, but I Feel Like a Millionaire You Think I Ain't Worth a Dollar, but I Feel Like a Millionaire Cover Art

Is that Dave Grohl knocking on the door? Well, open WIDE - because from those first few seconds, this is an awesome, rocking' song!

Killer Song! The nicks vocals are very powerful, and the guitar riff are simple, but amazing!

One of the best driving rock songs I've ever heard. Reminiscent of 'Song 2' by Blur.

Top tune, as mentioned, perfect for some late night driving. Some of their harder work

8 Song for the Deaf Song for the Deaf Cover Art

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! It's a great song

So perfect, just everything is amazing about the song.

9 The Lost Art of Keeping a Secret The Lost Art of Keeping a Secret Cover Art

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.

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.

Great song. One of their best.

10 First It Giveth First It Giveth Cover Art

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

The Contenders
11 I Sat by the Ocean I Sat by the Ocean Cover Art

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.

Agree this song should be MUCH higher on the list. My favorite. Lots of emtion. If you have ever had a bad relationship due to someone lying then this is your song. Brilliant and sad.

An incredibly underappreciated QotSA song. Can't believe it's so low on the list!

12 Make It Wit Chu Make It Wit Chu Cover Art

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

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

13 My God Is the Sun My God Is the Sun Cover Art

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.

Surrendered by their seductive sound, now the boys of Queens of the Stone Age became more matured and heavier.

Top 5 worthy, maybe even top 3, maybe even top 2, maybe even... well you get the point: This song is amazing!

14 If Only If Only Cover Art

Awesome song! Very underrated I consider this song to be their best. so catchy! Josh Homme's opening guitair riff hooks me every time.

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

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

Listen to the original demo on the split Kyuss EP... Josh is a legend and a genius.

15 In My Head In My Head Cover Art

I keep on playing our favourite song
I turn it up while you're gone
It's all I've got when you're in my head
When you're in my head, so I need it.

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.

I'm answering the friend with nostalgic comments. Its because this was featured in nfs underground 2. I guess.

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

16 Smooth Sailing Smooth Sailing Cover Art

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

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

17 In the Fade In the Fade Cover Art

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).

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.

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.

18 Regular John Regular John Cover Art

Best riff, love it. Easily their best song.

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

19 Mosquito Song Mosquito Song Cover Art

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.

Whoa! Feeling depressed never felt so worth while!

"Where will you run, where will you hide, lullabies to paralyze" This song has everything, one of their most thought out songs in my opinion

20 If I Had a Tail If I Had a Tail Cover Art

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.

Instrumentally this song is fantastic, the way the synths, bass and guitar go together. Lanegan's backing vocals are ace too

This song has so much drive. Favorite song off like clockwork.

21 The Sky is Fallin' The Sky is Fallin' Cover Art

Catchy chorus, infectious riff, and the intro/interlude part is very smooth.

22 ...Like Clockwork ...Like Clockwork Cover Art

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.

23 Better Living Through Chemistry Better Living Through Chemistry Cover Art

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.

24 Feel Good Hit of the Summer Feel Good Hit of the Summer Cover Art

awesome stuff really, the real statement of the genius 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, that's 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!

25 Sick, Sick, Sick Sick, Sick, Sick Cover Art

"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!

Hated it the first time I heard it. Love it now
