How are QotSA getting a higher yes percentage than Kyuss?
Posted by William on Monday, 01.8.07 @ 17:41pm
They are keeping good music alive in these dark times. They deffinatly deserve it... Kyuss too.

Not really. Aside from Songs for the Deaf, they don't really have that much strong material, and they're way less innovative and influential than Kyuss was.

Kyuss all the way.

QOTSA doesnt know how to make a dissapointing record. If QOTSA was around first, William would have said what he did backwards and he knows it. Listen to all their material cause I know you didn't. QOTSA desrves the hall of fame every bit as much as Kyuss does.

If QotSA had come first AND influenced the legions of stoner metal outfits that Kyuss did, then yes, they'd deserve induction. Too bad what-ifs don't cut it, huh? What if MCR had showed up before the Beatles?

Have you listened to the self titled or R? They are phoenominal albums and in some ways, I think R is better than Deaf.

Actually, I've heard the complete discographies of both Kyuss and every band by an ex-Kyuss member: Unida, Mondo Generator, Che, Hermano, EoDM, you name it. And actually, for the type of music they make, the new Fu Manchu beats out Era Vulgaris by a mile.

I own albums by a bunch of the bands you mentioned. I do think that some of them deserve hall of fame... some more than QOTSA. However, I do think QOTSA deserve it sometime down the road. If you dont agree thats fine. After all, its just an opinion.

One thing to note; QOTSA aren't as good as Kyuss, their predecessors. Whilst Songs For The Deaf is a stong album, I can't see any of QOTSA's work being more influential, and certaimly isn't more innovative.

Lullabies is better than all their albums. Just putting that out there. And only time will tell about their worthiness

i think that QotSA are one f the most important bands of our era and they deserve an entry because,music,generally has fallen dramatically the past few years, and honestly there's only a few bands that are exceptional-QotSA are one of them
Posted by Josh a.k.a GoD on Saturday, 11.22.08 @ 15:01pm
I first saw this band on VH1 Rock Honors. They have four guitarists and they can't even play "Paranoid." You call that exceptional?
Posted by Metalsmith on Wednesday, 12.17.08 @ 14:21pm
Really? Maybe they were having an off night or something. The few times I've seen them they were pretty good.

the thing you guys are forgeting, is the standards that he bands need to meet. I love QotSA, and I don't even listen to stoner stuff (except Wolfmother) but lets look at it this way:
Posted by Tyson on Tuesday, 12.30.08 @ 11:52am
Speaking of acidic music, QotSA are great, though not as influencial as Kyuss.

Saw this band at Chevy Stage at The Hangout. One of top 4 sets I saw that weekend. Sound was bad at that stage, but not if you are 2nd row :-)

Never realized how much I was in tune w/William, all those yrs. ago. Man knew some good stuff...
Posted by Cheesecrop on Wednesday, 05.18.16 @ 09:28am
For some reason, this is one of those bands that I just can't seem to get into. I have seen them live three times (all of them as opening acts), and that didn't change anything. I do like their songs "No One Knows" and their followup, "Go With the Flow". But my personal taste doesn't matter. Josh Homme has many connections and it shouldn't be too much of a hassle for them to get in when its their time.
