The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

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.

Watch Josh Homme Throw An Overexcited QOTSA Fan Offstage
