Queens of the Stone Age

Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

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. (thanks, Bert - Pueblo, NM, for all above)

Did Marvin try out with the Detroit Lions? Did he fake crazy to get out of military service? And what about the cross-dressing?
