With the release of 2000's Rated R, Queens of the Stone Age helped kick off the new millennium with one of the most unusual, intriguing and original rock albums anyone had heard in, well, forever.

Rated R was spawned out of the same collective creative environment responsible for Homme's spontaneous Desert Sessions – as well as Queens of the Stone Age's excellent self-titled debut from 1998. But this gem ultimately transcended so-called "stoner" rock's fundamental, guitar-riff-driven blueprint with a textural melange, both hard and soft, rife with incongruous stylistic blends and stylistic departures.

Queens of the Stone Age's sonic evolution gave snooty music critics, pre-programmed to reject heavy sounds like those previously churned out by Kyuss (and like-minded rockers like Clutch, Fu Manchu, et al), an opening to embrace Queens of the Stone Age as a more acceptable form of art rock ensemble. Fans began to respond, as well. Thoroughly weird and strangely alluring, Rated R only reached No. 106 on the Billboard charts, but 2002's Songs for the Deaf would become the first of a string of U.S. Top 20 albums. - Ultimate Classic Rock
