Era Vulgaris is the fifth full length studio album by American hard rock band Queens of the Stone Age. The album was completed in early April 2007[1] and released on June 8, 2007 in some countries, June 11, 2007 in the United Kingdom and June 12, 2007 in the United States.[2] The tracks "Sick, Sick, Sick" and "3's & 7's" were released as singles in early June,[3] with a third single "Make It wit Chu" released around Halloween of 2007.

The album debuted at number fourteen on the U.S. Billboard 200 charts selling 52,000 copies in its first week,[4] which was a decline in comparison to the previous album, which opened at number 5 with 91,000 copies sold in its debut week.[5] In other countries it has reached much loftier debut positions, mostly in the top ten, such as number five in Canada where it sold approximately 10,000 copies in its opening week.[6] The album debuted at number nine at United World Chart, selling approximately 149,000 copies worldwide in its first week.[7]

Songs for the Deaf is the third studio album by American hard rock band Queens of the Stone Age. Released in 2002, the album features Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl as a guest drummer.[8] Like their other albums, Songs for the Deaf has a large number of guest musicians, a signature of the band's releases. Following the breakthrough Rated R, this album is widely regarded as Queens of the Stone Age's magnum opus, garnering universal acclaim from critics,[9] whilst earning the band's first gold record certification in the U.S., having sold 986,000 copies in the country.[10] Songs for the Deaf is loosely considered as a concept album, taking the listener on a drive from Los Angeles to the Mojave Desert while tuning into radio stations from towns on the way such as Banning, California and Chino Hills, California.

Quote of the week

"Fuck the labels man, they suck. The last thing they’re stripping down is their own expense accounts and shit. I mean, Jimmy Iovine of Interscope Records takes a private jet or rides first class to tell a band they don’t get tour support. You know what I mean? Fuck that shit, I’m tired of it." (Interview with Antiquiet) Joshua Homme
