Rated R was Queens of the Stone Ages’ Interscope debut, but that didn’t mean they were cleaning up their acts. The Palm Desert rockers kickstarted the record with a song that listed off a bunch of drugs in joyously quick succession, and the rest of the album swerved between tales of the narcotic over fuzzy riffs and squinty melodies. QOTSA would go on to release bigger and more “major label” sounding records, but Rated R is a fuzz-kickin’ classic. Eli Enis
