Kyuss/Queens of the Stone Age is a split compilation EP released in December 1997. The first three songs are performed by Kyuss and the last three songs by guitarist Josh Homme's next band, Queens of the Stone Age.
It includes a cover of the song "Into the Void" by Black Sabbath from their album Master of Reality, which was originally issued as a single by Man's Ruin Records in 1996 with "Fatso Forgotso" as its B-side. "Fatso Forgotso Phase II" appeared under the name "Flip the Phase" on the 1995 "One Inch Man" single. "If Only Everything" and "Born to Hula" appeared on the Gamma Ray 7", issued by Man's Ruin Records in 1996. Shortly after that release, Homme received a cease & desist order for using a copyrighted band name. This EP, released a year later, is the first appearance of the "Queens of the Stone Age" moniker.
"If Only Everything" is an early version of the song "If Only", which appeared on Queens of the Stone Age's eponymous debut album. Re-recorded versions of "Born to Hula" appeared as a B-side on one edition of the "Lost Art of Keeping a Secret" single release, and a discarded version on The Ultimate Collection of B-Sides and Rarities bootleg. This original version includes backing vocals by former Kyuss lead singer John Garcia. "Spiders and Vinegaroons" was used as the menu theme for the live DVD/CD release, Over the Years and Through the Woods and was later included on the 2011 re-release of Queens of the Stone Age's debut album. "Fatso Forgotso" and "Fatso Forgotso Phase II (Flip the Phase)" were later re-released on Muchas Gracias: The Best of Kyuss.
