Queens Of The Stone Age Bring Back Memories Of “MTV2 Video Mods”

May 16th, 2008 // 7 Comments

The new Queens Of The Stone Age video, “3s & 7s,” their second for the track, finds the band replaced by Rock Band avatars considerably more skinny and twirl-prone than their human counterparts. Oddly, the previous video for the song, which attempted to swipe the Grindhouse zeitgeist, didn’t feature much more of the band (p.s. this track fucking smokes, but anyone who plays Guitar Hero III already knows that).

If you looked like Josh Homme, would you bother hiding behind such gimmicks? Not me, I’d be staring in the mirror. Flexing. Or maybe just dreamily eye-fucking the camera like he does in the “Make It Wit’ Chu” clip.

That said, if bouncing video game characters help to get people buying Era Vulgaris, arguably my favorite of the band’s many tasty albums, I’m totally for it.

    Dear Queens of the Stone Age,

    Thank you for releasing a new video and therefore forcing me to dust off/revisit Era Vulgaris and be reminded of it’s awesomeness.

    Sincerely,

    Tauwan

    Lanegan’s not singing so I don’t care.
