“Rated R” for Reissue

with one comment

Here’s a brief tidbit about a forthcoming rock title due for a reissue. NME reports that Queens of the Stone Age are readying a 10th anniversary re-release of their first major-label LP, Rated R, for a July release.

QotSA frontman Josh Homme – also a key member of in-demand supergroup Them Crooked Vultures with Dave Grohl (Nirvana, Foo Fighters) and Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones – confirmed that the set would likely feature extra material such as non-LP tracks and unreleased live recordings, possibly from the group’s first visit to the famed Reading Festival in the U.K. from a decade before.

In the meantime, hit the jump to reacquaint yourself with the album, and a few possible bonus cuts to boot.

  1. Lame! I just bought this a few months back, which I wouldn’t have done if I’d known a reissue was in the works.
