Queens 0f The Stone Age Rated R

As the title of the album is Rated R, the album includes a lot of drug references and alcohol. These are so prominent in the opening track. Track consist entirely of the repeated words Nicotine, valium, Vicodin, marijuana, ecstasy, and alcohol followed by a chorus of “c-c-c-c-c-cocaine in “Feel Good Hit of the Summer”

The interesting fact about these lyrics is Josh Homme has said that there is no endorsement or condemnation behind these lyrics. He has said that after a New Year’s party he was trying to remember that what exactly he had consumed that evening leaving him so intoxicated. That time he that he came up with the lyrics.
