''Songs for the Deaf'' is the third studio album by American hard rock band Queens of the Stone Age. Released on August 27, 2002, the album features Foo Fighters and Nirvana member Dave Grohl as a guest drummer. Like their other albums, ''Songs for the Deaf'' has a large number of guest musicians, a signature of the band's releases. Following the breakthrough ''Rated R'', this album is widely regarded as Queens of the Stone Age's best work, garnering near-universal acclaim from critics, whilst earning the band's first gold record certification in the US, having sold 986,000 copies in the country. ''Songs for the Deaf'' is loosely considered as a concept album, taking the listener on a drive from Los Angeles to Joshua Tree while tuning into radio stations from towns on the way such as Banning and Chino Hills, California. - Wikipedia
