once upon a time there was a band called kyuss
and then they split up
and then the band's guitarist joined the band screaming trees as a touring guitarist
and then the words "gamma ray" came to him in a dream...which more than likely involved him fighting the incredible hulk over a bowl of chili
and then he was all like "i'm totally going to start a band and call it bowl of chili"
and then a few minutes later he was all like "no...gamma ray...that's the ticket"
and then there was a german band that liked to wear leather and scream...and they were all like "no,bro...WE'RE gamma ray...change the name or else!"
yeah...i probably should have mentioned that he was using the bathroom at the time
and then just to get the germans out of his bathroom...he was all like "fine...queens of the stone age"
and then the germans left...but not before they had all used the bathroom
and then after washing his hands...he got on the phone with former kyuss bandmate...drummer alfredo hernandez
and then he was all like "hey,man...band?"
and thus was born the queens of the stone age
