Queens Of The Stone Age have lent their song "Better Living Through Chemistry" from last year’s Rated R album to an educational film to be shown in area high schools' drivers education classes at the request of the San Diego County Office of Education and the San Diego Sheriff's Department. The film is about the dangers of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol and will be shown in classrooms later this year.
"I feel like doing donuts in San Diego County and dropping my name when the cops come," frontman Josh Homme told Rolling Stone. "Dude, it's a get-out-of-jail-free card. I just want to be in league with the cops."
QOTSA are currently finishing up their next album, Songs For The Deaf, in Los Angeles with producer by Eric Valentine (Smashmouth). The album features guest turns from Foo Fighter Dave Grohl and Gene Ween of Ween. Songs For The Deaf is scheduled for an early 2002 release through Interscope Records and will be the group's first effort with longtime band collaborator Mark Lanegan as the full-time vocalist. The band also recently laid down a cover of “Who'll Be The Next In Line” for a Kinks tribute album, This is Where I Belong-The Songs of Ray Davies & The Kinks, which is due for release on April 1st through Rykodisc.
