Queens Of The Stone Age Blast Into 2014 On ACL

Why aren't these guys dominating the world right now?  Most likely it's Josh Homme's fearless determination to steer the band in the direction he wants it to go with a minimum of playing nice.  I've seen these guys in tiny rooms(Middle East Upstairs on their first tour) to big sheds(Comcast Center) and they never disappoint.  Here's their performance from last Saturday's Austin City Limits.  Plug in the headphones(not earbuds, the big fat headphones) and let it rip.
