Long before ASMR was a thing, Queens Of The Stone Age released "The Real Song For The Deaf," a 92-second collage of soft pulses and taps. According to Nick Oliveri
, the main songwriter on the Songs For The Deaf
album along with group leader Josh Homme, the song was, in fact, created for deaf people. "We got an organization of deaf people to rub balloons against the mic at such a low frequency that they could feel it," he told Planet Sound. "Turn up your speakers at home and you'll, ah, hear it."
