No One Knows by Queens of the Stone Age

Album: Songs For The DeafReleased: 2002Charted:
  • The main riff of this song was originally used by Josh Homme on a song for his side project The Desert Sessions called "Cold Sore Superstars." This was found on The Desert Sessions Volumes 7 & 8, along with the song "Hanging Tree," which was also re-recorded as a Queens Of The Stone Age song.
  • This was Queens of the Stone Age's first hit song. It reached #1 on the US Modern Rock Charts.
  • Dave Grohl, the former drummer of Nirvana and frontman of the Foo Fighters, played drums on this song as well as the entire Songs For The Deaf album. He also toured with the band.
  • This song was featured in several video games, including Guitar Hero, which allowed games to play along with this song using a guitar-shaped controller. >>

  • Dave Grohl became the first person to hold the #1 spot on the Modern Rock chart as a member of three different groups when "No One Knows" reached the summit. He'd previously topped the tally with Nirvana and Foo Fighters.
  • Josh Homme is a big Björk fan, so he sought director Michel Gondry, who helmed many of her music videos (including her debut "Human Behaviour") for the "No One Knows" video. In the clip, co-directed by Dean Karr, the band accidentally hits a deer with their truck and the deer, in turn, attacks them.
