Dead Planet is the third studio album by former Queens of the Stone Age and Kyuss bassist/vocalist Nick Oliveri and his band, Mondo Generator. The album was recorded in late 2005 and early 2006 at Dave Grohl's Studio 606 and at Donner & Blitzen studios. The album features Oliveri on bass, vocals, guitars and drums, Hoss Wright on drums, and Ben Perrier, Ben Thomas and Marc Diamond among others.

The album was originally released on the UK label Mother Tongue Records and Impedance Records of Australia in 2006, under the name Dead Planet: SonicSlowMotionTrails. Suburban Noize Records released the album on July 17, 2007 in the United States with a different title and track list order, plus the remaining tracks from III The EP (against Oliveri's wishes), and a heavily compressed remastering.
