American rock group Queens Of The Stone Age covered the song
for the 2018 Elton John tribute album Revamp
. Their version was produced by Mark Ronson and features backing vocals with Jake Shears of The Scissor Sisters.
"It's nice to pick something that may seem off kilter at first for us to do. But 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road' really has the psychedelic carousel nature to it," said QOTSA's Josh Homme. "I think at first we thought we will tinker with the arrangement, but there's so many beautiful chords- the chord progression is so wonderful- once you step on that carousel, it's just this beautiful musical swirl and it's really intoxicating to be on that carousel. And it seemed like there's a psychedelic element that we could bring out, that it's touching on, and that maybe the key for us to do it would be to accentuate the wispiness that is going on in the song."
