Them Crooked Vultures – Scumbag Blues

It may be of interest to know Them Crooked Vultures is made up of Josh Homme, Dave Grohl, and John Paul Jones. It doesn’t get much better than Queens of the Stone Age, Nirvana, and Led Zeppelin molded together (I leave off Foo Fighters because Grohl is playing drums here). I only quickly mentioned looking forward to the band’s album a few months ago in a QOTSA post — well, it’s out now. I definitely need to listen to the entire album a bit more, but I’ll admit that the first listen was a bit disappointing, if only due to unrealistic expectations. Listening to this song repeatedly is hindering me from going through the entire album again. I do have to say that I recommend any fan of QOTSA — or good old-fashioned hard rock — to check out the album immediately; at the very least, it’s a decent substitute for no proper QOTSA album this year.
