Hottest 100 - Queens of the Stone Age, No One Knows

Ranked #45 hottest song of all time, released in 2002. This is the only polka tune to make in into the top 100 charts in the entire 20th century. Though there is in fact a small but thriving "punk polka" genre in the US. Can't say I've heard any of it. Queens of the Stone Age are of course more known for their more standard 4/4 blues progression rock music and other edgy modern styles.

This song features Mr Dave Grohl on drums, and damn he's good. Of course Dave Grohl also featured on the Nirvana track that won this poll. He wasn't always their drummer, and isn't again now, but for a while, the band was golden.

The band is called Queens of the Stone Age because of their heavy, percussion-based sound, like cave-men. ANd they're queens because, well I don't know, they wanted to share the female-moniker-for-an-all-male-band stable with Violent Femmes I suppose.
