Gamma Ray is the debut EP from American rock band Gamma Ray, which later became known as Queens of the Stone Age in 1997. It features two songs, both of which would later be re-recorded. "If Only Everything" would later be re-recorded as "If Only" on their 1998 eponymous debut album, while "Born to Hula" would be re-recorded twice as a b-side on 2000's "The Lost Art of Keeping a Secret" single, and a discarded version of the same date ending up The Definitive Collection of B-Sides and Rarities bootleg. It is out of print.[1] The song "Spiders and Vinegaroons" was also recorded during the sessions, and it later appeared alongside the other two songs as the first QOTSA songs on the Kyuss/Queens of the Stone Age split EP of 1997.
