WATCH: Queens of the Stone Age Cover “Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?” From New Arctic Monkeys Album
On the second day of Jay Z’s Made in America festival, rock acts loomed large (compared to Day 1’s poppier lean). While the fest maintained its trademark diversity, there was a little more guitar ringing through the air– the 90-degree, hot, humid air.
The day kicked off with an energetic set from Fitz and the Tantrums. Singers Michael Fitzpatrick and Noelle Scaggs shared frontman duties and knew how to balance each other both harmonically and in their stagecraft. Adept at breaking down the barrier between performer and audience, the pop-rock band sounded tight and connected with the earlybirds.

WATCH: Oliver Libaux Releases Video for Song “No One Knows” Featuring Inara George from New Album Uncovered Queens of the Stone Age
In the confused wasteland of the early aughts, when Nickelback, Fall Out Boy and The Fray reigned supreme, some important rock was quietly forged. One of the most overlooked records of this period was Queens of the Stone Age’s Lullabies to Paralyze. Though band founder Josh Homme has referred to the Lullabies era as QOTSA’s lowest, it is a record worth a second look, and a third and a five hundredth. Haunting and hard-hitting, it is a collection of highly radio-unfriendly songs that will glue themselves to the deepest parts of your cerebellum.
