Over nearly two decades, Queens of the Stone Age have built a powerful and distinctive body of work that marks QOTSA as one of rock's most consistently audacious outfits. The band's reputation was built on its early hot streak of four smash releases: Rated R, Songs For The Deaf, Lullabies to Paralyze and Era Vulgaris. Interscope Records/UMe adds an exciting new chapter to QOTSA's catalogue with high-quality 180g vinyl editions of Rated R and Songs For The Deaf in November 2019, and Lullabies to Paralyze and Era Vulgaris to follow in December.
In 2000, Queens of the Stone Age achieved a creative and commercial breakthrough with their major-label debut Rated R, featuring the breakout tracks "The Lost Art of Keeping A Secret" and "Feel Good Hit of the Summer." This new LP edition marks Rated R‘s first U.S. vinyl pressing, and is the first vinyl edition worldwide to feature the album's original blue artwork. This LP also augments the original album with the international bonus track "Ode To Clarissa," as well as a unique 12″ x 24″ insert.
