Despite hailing from nearby Palm Desert, Queens of the Stone Age won't be performing at Coachella this weekend -- they last performed at the fest in 2003. They will, however, be performing tonight at the Fox in Oakland tonight (it's sold out, but tickets are going for about $50-$60 on craigslist right about now).

Above, as a teaser, their 2005 single "In My Head." As lead man Josh Homme once said, regarding the name of the band and why they aren't "Kings of the Stone Age," "Kings would be too macho. The Kings of the Stone Age wear armor and have axes and wrestle. The Queens of the Stone Age hang out with the Kings of the Stone Age's girlfriends when they wrestle, and also it was a name given to us by Chris Goss. He gave us the name Queens of the Stone Age. Rock should be heavy enough for the boys and sweet enough for the girls. That way everyone's happy and it's more of a party."
