No one knows QOTSA. Not even Dave.

Hey, do you know Queens Of The Stone Age‘s ‘No One Knows’ song? I do, but Dave Mustaine doesn’t. At least not by name, which is pretty ironic if you think about it.

When asked in a previous interview what his new album sounds like, Dave described it as a ‘Black Sabbath with a little bit of Queens Of The Stone Age‘ — which I can’t even imagine, really. But in another interview, Dave clears it all up (actually, no he doesn’t).

Yeah, that’s a really bad quote that’s gotten out there. What I said was that it’s got some really super modern sounds , because that’s Johnny (K, producer)’s style. The sounds themselves ARE – LIKE – OLD – SABBATH! Right? Now, that doesn’t mean that the songs are like old Sabbath songs. The sound is. Some of the guitars. But when you put the guitars all together, you put the bass in there, and the drums, and you add the vocals, it doesn’t sound the same at all. And what I had said about Queens Of The Stone Age, I was talking about guitar sounds. I don’t know that band at all! I know one song. (He sings the riff from ‘No One Knows’)

That makes a lot of sense now, doesn’t it? Didn’t think so. When are musicians gonna stop describing their upcoming albums as “<insert band here> meets <insert another band here>”? It will only enrage, confuse and annoy the fans.

But don’t worry, according to the same interview, the album will be ‘the best thing Dave has done in a long time.’ And we all know Dave likes to keep it modest, so if he says it’s the best, it has to be.  Right? RIGHT?

Make the jump to see the video for the song Dave was humming. It’s actually one of my favorite QOTSA songs.
