48. Queens of the Stone Age Rated R (2000)

A great example of excellent graphic design hiding one of the finest examples of super stoned out rock n’roll. Yeah you read right, I think calling QOTSA metal is marginal — there are certainly elements of it, not so much on this album but later in their life, but I could not, not put this up in this list. There is a red version out there on vinyl that I have seen, but I prefer Francesca Restrepo’s blue version.
