Josh Homme: “Fuck Imagine Dragons!”
A couple of weeks ago, Imagine Dragons won the Best Rock Performance Grammy for their inescapable puffball “Radioactive,” beating out the Queens Of The Stone Age stomper “My God Is The Sun” in the process. And Sunday night, while QOTSA were playing Houston’s Bayou Music Center, frontman Josh Homme offered some indication of how he felt about the whole thing. Introducing “I Appear Missing,” he said, “This next song is by Imagine Dragons.” After the crowd booed, he offered this: “Fuck everything. Fuck the man. Fuck Imagine Dragons and fuck the Grammys.” He also mimed jerking off “the man,” which was fun. Homme was goofing, of course, but there has to be some seriousness behind it. Watch the video below, and you’ll get an extended “I Appear Missing” as a bonus.
Homme is now the second participant in the Grammys’ closing jam to say “fuck the Grammys,” after Trent Reznor. Now we just need to hear it from Lindsey Buckingham and Dave Grohl. (We will never hear it from Dave Grohl.)
