Listen to Queens of the Stone Age ‘Head Like A Haunted House’ from Lucifer with its phenomenal bass and drums
It was played as Dan tries to upset the Orcas and Wildchild to get the information he needs.
And bassist Mikey Shoes bass playing on this track and Jon Theodore’s drums, to me, are a huge indicator of why this band has been around for so long (since 1996), because they make something so difficult sound so incredibly easy.
Queens of the Stone Age’s ‘Head Like A Haunted House‘ is from the band’s seventh studio album Villains, which was released in June last year.
It was both a critical and a commercial success for the band, earning them the number 3 spot on the Billboard 200 chart the week it was released, as well as hitting the top spot on the Top Album Sales chart.
The album ultimately ended up on Mojo’s Top 50 Albums of 2017 at number 3, on Rolling Stone’s 50 Best Albums of 2017 at number 8, and on Classic Rock magazines Classic Rock Magazine’s 50 Albums of 2017 list at number 1.
It spawned two singles — The Way You Used To Do‘ and ‘The Evil Has Landed‘.
And that is what I often find so interesting about the music that Music Supervisors choose for the TV series they soundtrack. It is often the lesser known songs they like, and not the hits you would expect them to choose.
