* CreativeDifferences: Bjork left the band because he and Homme began clashing over songwriting, and Homme had started refusing to play on his songs. * CreatorBreakdown: After they disbanded, Josh apparently had one.

* NamesTheSame: What does Brant's family name remind you of?... ** "Thong Song" isn't about ladies' undergarments. It's about a type of sandals popular in the Palm Desert.

* TheRedStapler: Josh's Ovation GP guitar. ** Basically, some fans instantly went to eBay when they discovered what he was playing and managed to hike the prices of a guitar that was fairly unpopular up to insane heights. Now you're lucky if GP aficionados don't tear you apart for wanting "Josh Homme's guitar."

They formed in 1989 as Sons of Kyuss, and released an EP [[SelfTitledAlbum under that name]] in 1990 before shortening their name to "Kyuss". (Kyuss is an [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kyuss_(Greyhawk) evil demigod of worms and corruption]] from the ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' game, and Son of Kyuss was an [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Son_of_Kyuss undead monster]] described in the 1st Edition D&D Fiend Folio.) Over the next few years, the band released four full-length albums before splitting up in 1995. Their only constant members were vocalist John Garcia (known for his very recognisable voice, which is often said to be synonymous with the genre) and guitarist Josh Homme, who you already know of.

What, you want more than that? OK. Kyuss were a highly influential American stoner rock[[hottip:*:(Kyuss qualified as both stoner rock and stoner metal; the two terms are not totally interchangable, but have a very large amount of overlap)]] band from Palm Desert, California. They were the pioneers of their genre (stoner metal/rock), which is vaguely a subgenre of DoomMetal but often has very little to do with doom. Its characteristics include heavily detuned guitars, low-end-heavy sound (Josh Homme would plug his guitar into a bass amp for this very reason), massive Music/BlackSabbath influence, hallucinogenic themes and an overall insanely deep and heavy sound.

* BreakupBreakout - After Kyuss broke up, Josh Homme founded QueensOfTheStoneAge and had far more commercial success than Kyuss ever did. * CoverVersion - They did [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VNCuZvBVjtM a cover of]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4cbpsuYiGVY Yawning Man's "Catamaran"]], a cover of Across the River's "N.O.", and their last release, a Kyuss/QOTSA split single, had a cover of "Into the Void" by Music/BlackSabbath.

* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness - On the border between 6 and 7. Some of their gentler songs go as low as 3 (the acoustic blues-rock tune "Space Cadet"). * NamesTheSame - What does Brant's family name remind you of?...
