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 ''Music/SongsForTheDeaf'' 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.

Queens of the Stone Age is a HardRock group from the Palm Desert Scene, formed in 1996 by guitarist Josh Homme after his previous band {{Kyuss}} disbanded. Originally titled Gamma Ray, they were forced to change their name after a threat of legal action from an [[Music/GammaRay already existing band]]. The name comes from a joke made by one of Kyuss's producers, but Homme has since given a different rationale behind it.

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'']].

Added DiffLines:

* 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]]).
