The band was originally called Gamma Ray, but we got threatened withalawsuitbecausesomeone else had it. Sowe were Queens of theStone Age. - Oliveri (2000) Kings would be too macho. The Kings of the Stone Age wear armor and have axes and wrestle. The Queens oftheStoneAgehang out withthe Kings ofthe Stone Age's girlfriends, when they wrestle. And also, it was also just a name giventousbyChris Goss. He gave us thename Queens of the StoneAge. Rock should be heavy enough for the boys andsweetenoughforthe girls. That way, everyone is happy andit's more of a party. Kings of the StoneAge, is too lopsided. - Homme(2000) In the fall of 1998, they released their self-titled debut album, Queens of the Stone Age, which was recordedwithJoshhandlingboth guitarand bassguitar playing duties, Alfredo Hernandez on the drums, and included severalotherinstrumentaland vocalcontributions by ChrisGoss and Hutch.
