The group started out by releasing two split [=CDs=]: one of the leftover {{Kyuss}} tracks and another with the group Beaver. The new material on those [=CDs=] and their first official album, ''[[SelfTitledAlbum Queens of the Stone Age]]'' in 1998, showed Josh Homme slowly breaking away from the musical stylings of {{Kyuss}} and coming into his own as an independent musician. However, the group found its identity with the release of ''Rated R'' in 2000, a mellower and more varied (but none-the-less hard) mix of stoner rock, grunge/alternative, classic rock and just a touch of heavy metal (with a few unorthodox musical experiments here and there, such as the use of steel drums in one song). The band solidified their newfound sense of identity with ''Songs For the Deaf'' in 2002. Largely abandoning their Stoner Rock origins in favor of a more accessible HardRock sound, it's a critically acclaimed album with the Grammy-nominated songs "No One Knows" and "Go With the Flow" (which also found their ways into ''VideoGame/GuitarHero'' and ''VideoGame/RockBand'', respectively). It is their best selling album and the only one with platinum certification.

Added DiffLines:
* DoomMetal: More specifically, Stoner Metal. This applies most obviously to their first two albums, but they've never ''completely'' moved away from the genre. Their work post-''Songs For the Deaf'' only partially count, though, with the possible exception of [[DarkerAndEdgier ''Like Clockwork'']].

* LoudnessWar: All of their albums have it in some way or another, but ''Songs for the Deaf''', which measures DR 4, is probably the most infamous case (although [[StylisticSuck the entire album is supposed to sound like it's being listened to on a car stereo]]).
