Tryna make me go to rehab...
Josh Homme and his Queens Of The Stone Age were recently recruited by an "unnamed Los Angeles drying out clinic" to provide "a light-hearted, intimate performance" for patients. And the clinic was delighted when the Queens accepted, at least up to the moment the band started playing, because apparently no one on staff had ever listened to their music or read a single interview with the mischievous Mr. Homme.

But a spokesman for the band informed NME.COM that when the band opened the show with classic 'Feel Good Hit Of The Summer', staff at the clinic were so unimpressed that they pulled the plugs and had security remove them straight away without negotiation.

The song's lyrics famously run: "Nicotine, valium, vicodin, marijuana, ecstasy and alcohol... c-c-c-c-c-cocaine". (Via Idolator)

I really really want to see Queens Of The Stone Age live.
Ironically, the song is used by the Colorado Police Department as the soundtrack to their instructional videos demonstrating the consequences of drink driving.
